It'a a pity it doesn't exist, we should do something about it.

BTW I think Sindarin would be more appropriate than Quenya.

Does anybody know if there is unicode support for feanorean runes?

Careful with that hash Eugene.

    Presumably you're referring to the Tengwar. Apparently there is a proposal to include Tengwar in Unicode, but that's as far as it's gotten.

    I can see it going either way. Quenya was the "Latin" of Middle earth and Gandalf's "native" tounge. Of course, though, Sindarin was in the Third Age the more commonly used language (among the Elves). I see Perl as a language that is extremely accessable and easily learned by those without lots of prior progamming experience. So, in that case, Sindarin would be the apropriate choice.

[choroba]: Unfortunately, none of it is online
[haukex]: I figured that POD tests make sense, but only as author tests
[choroba]: I mean, the slides are, but not the makefile with scripts to create them
[Corion]: haukex: I've only now arrived at that revelation ;)
[Corion]: choroba: I use spod5, which also has that support, and also implements its own kinda-make stuff
[haukex]: But that module I just linked to assumes that most verbatim blocks are runnable code, I have other modules where that's not the case, so there I just copy-and-paste the synopsis into the author tests...
[haukex]: not the most efficient, but then again, I don't have that many modules on CPAN :-)
[Corion]: haukex: Yes, but if it's only supposed to run on my machine, I can be far more liberal with how I extract the code etc.
[Corion]: haukex: Yes - I see the benefit of using Dist::Zilla for people with 150+ modules on CPAN, but I don't see it for myself, and I'm always put off from contributing to such modules because they require a lot of toolchain setup that I don't want to ...
[Corion]: ... spend time on if I only want to provide a short patch
