in thread RFC: Hash::CamelCase

I didn't notice XML::Rules last time I browsed CPAN. Thanks for the tip. I'm currently using XML::Twig, for two reasons.

  • The files I have do not fit into main memory. (Well, they would, if I bought another gigabyte of RAM.) XML::Twig is able to parse the file one part at a time, without loading it all in at once.
  • I like the concept of twigs much more than SAX.

Another gain is that (as with SAX?) I can store the absolute byte position of where certain elements start and where they end, by defining a start_twig_handler and calling current_byte, which is defined in XML::Parser::Expat. I am using this to load big data chunks from the file on-demand. The data chunks are the real culprits in why I can't read in the whole file at once. Storing hundreds of megabytes of base64 encoded binary data in an XML file is not my idea, though... But I have to live with it.

Anyway, this is going too much on a tangent. I'm beginning to think Hash::CamelCase is pretty useless. Maybe I should move the module to the Acme namespace.

[Discipulus]: Corion are you would able to realize such thing? O_O
[Corion]: In the same vein I have a script that automates Firefox to enter some data into another system. It's not faster than the people using the script if they were to do it manually, but they prefer not having to check the data and not having typos when ...
[Corion]: ... entering the data
[Corion]: Discipulus: I don't know whether I could really do that, but the init process itself mostly launches other processes, and the whole startup is just following a path of dependencies and making sure they are all running. Which basically is what ...
[Discipulus]: when at work my time is (temporarly) owned by the firm, so i do not care (coworkers whatch movies.. I code Perl)
[Corion]: ... make already does, except for files instead of programs. But maybe with some /proc hackery, that could be eliminated and one could use plain make :-D
[choroba]: systemd just makes is asynchronous
[choroba]: so, make -j
[Corion]: Discipulus: Yeah - but when writing Perl to save time (instead of having fun), it helps to look whether you're actually saving time ;) Why spend 5 minutes doing manually what you can spend three years automating? ;)
[Corion]: choroba: Oh, yeah :-D
