Top 10 reasons to start using ack

ack is a tool like grep, aimed at programmers with large trees of heterogeneous source code.

ack is written purely in Perl, and takes advantage of the power of Perl's regular expressions.

On 2005-10-14, I cleaned up some ancient cruft. The most interesting thing I found (and fixed) was the following. In the thread of Site How To (which, btw, is no longer an official site doc), some people had posted "root" question nodes as replies. Apparently they didn't know how to go to Seekers of Perl Wisdom and scroll to the bottom. So I yanked those nodes out and made them root nodes in the SoPW section. They were:

fry.  Programming is not a skill one develops in five easy lessons.

    [MidLifeXis]jdporter++ Green cheese.
    [MidLifeXis]Could also be Blue Cheese + yellow snow.
    [MidLifeXis]Sorry. Inappropriate?
    [thezip]Watch out where the UW Huskies go...
    [MidLifeXis]I have not been here much lately. What did I miss (besides a green-cheese comet - hey, is that why the Comet™ can is green?)
    [MidLifeXis]Comet is still around, right? I didn't date myself, did I?
    [MidLifeXis]Ok, good.
    [tye]I beileve the RNC platform is very strongly against dating yourself.
    [thezip]Funny, since the only way to successfully date many of the RNC involves carbon.
    [jellisii2]jellisii2 defenstrates himself.
    [tye]so, is Dancer really so stupid as to not stress proper escaping (maybe not even support it) in their templates?
    [thezip]thezip sells jellisii an 'e' for $500.
    [thezip]Dancers are quite quite often bad at escaping.
    [tye]ah, the default template in Dancer is indeed so stupid as to not even support escaping (Dancer::Template -> Dancer::Template::Simple)
    [tye]Mojo::Template, on the other hand, is not that stupid. One more point in that direction, as I've come to expect.
    [jellisii2]jellisii2 doesn't have the cash, so he'll settle for a typoed version. The IDE will work as a crutch around it.
    [tye]though, the escaping strategy in Mojo::Template doesn't look (after a quick scan) likely to be great at preventing errors
    [Corion]tye: Yeah, Dancer comes with superficially good defaults that annoy me to no end... The default template engine also doesn't know [% IF %] (or was it loops?)
    [tye]Dancer::Template::Default only knows how to paste in values with no escaping. Period.
    [Corion]Oh - not even escaping... Meh. I mostly use Template::Toolkit as my immediate replacement choice, which does far too much. On the upside, that keeps me from implementing my own templating engine ;)
    [tye]I love how "programming fashion" has some really horrible ideas as standard practice and how people will deride you for not following such, worse for being critical of such.
    [tye]Let us build URLs using a templating system! The "mute" button should move and then disappear if you haven't pushed it recently!
    [Corion]tye: :-D I can somewhat understand wanting to build URLs from a templating system, but there basically is only one way to escape values there, unless you also want to allow templates in the hostname and port parts...
    [tye]Remove all visual indications of what is a control of some kind!
    [Corion]I've built my own templating engine (somewhat fashioned after the Personal Nodelet engine) for my HTML chat application, because I wanted a more concise way to specify how things are escaped
    [tye]but, Corion, it is never a templating system specific to URLs. BTW, did you know that how to properly write a URL is different inside an <a ...> than in javascript? Does you templating system help you do both of those correctly?
    [Corion]tye: Well, that's "minimalist design" for you ;) Function follows rounded corners!
    [Corion]tye: The one I "wrote" had <% =foo% %> for percent-escaping and <c><% =foo& %> for HTML-entity-escaping I think.
    [tye]modern UIs are a bad version of Myst.
    [Corion]Does this imply there is a good version? ;-D
    [jellisii2]All X sucks?
