in reply to Perl Best Practices

For what it's worth, a few minor errata that caught my eye:

  • Page 100, last non-code line: this line references "even()" but all of the earlier mentions said "odd()".
  • Pge 308, first non-code line: "table-drive approach" =~ s/ve /ven /;

I can't find the Getopt::Clade on CPAN; am I looking in the wrong place?

Also, on page 151-152, I was disapointed not to find an example of GRT sorting; I know you mention it on page 164, but a roll-your-own example might help popularize this seemingly esoteric technique...

# Sort by SHA-512 digest of scripts # (optimized with Gutman-Rosler packed default sort) @sorted_scripts = map { substr($_, 64) } sort map { sha512($_) . $_ } @scripts;

    Thanks for the errata. I've passed them on to O'Reilly.

    Getopt::Clade will be on CPAN in August. Unfortunately, my planned release schedule had to be slipped slightly due to a series of family medical emergencies.

    Regarding no GRT example: There were probably two dozen examples of useful-but-not-essential techniques that I had to leave out to keep the book to a "mere" 550 pages. GRT was one of those.

      My sympathies on the medical front; best of luck there.
