in reply to My Reason for Doing Perl

You have my deepest condolences on your loss.

It is hard for many who are not in the community to understand how the technology community can provide a solace to those who are experiencing hardship, but although I cannot begin to understand your grief, I have also found the community to be a place to find a quiet respite during turbulent times in my life and hope that it will continue to be such a place for you.

My heart goes out to you, and I hope that in time, you will find peace.

[haukex]: Corion: Yes exactly, in the author tests I don't worry about portability as much, I also don't list the author tests' dependencies in Makefile.PL
[haukex]: I figure someone who wants to contribute will know how to install the missing modules ;-) Not the nicest way to go but I don't think many people are using my modules yet
[ambrus]: Corion: some of these stupid syntax highlighters assume that too. just look at the table in http://perldoc. perl.org/ functions/pack. html for example.
[haukex]: ..."yet" ;-) I haven't had to deal with Dist::Zilla yet but I've heard about how it's a big setup
[ambrus]: I really don't like automagic stuff. I'm happy when computers do exactly what I tell them, even if that means they sometimes do the wrong thing.
