    Depeding on how long you intend to spend doing stuff in each directory, it might be a good idea to do a chdir into that directory. This would avoid running into problems like the one you just had.

    This is one of those philosofical issues, like what's best:
    • relative links
    • absolute urls
    Each person has a particular way of doing things, but I just tend to think its a matter of what makes things clearer. In your case, it could be:
    if (-f "$path/$leaf") { } # or simply chdir($path) || warn(); if (-d $leaf) { }

[choroba]: Slidy is basically HTML, so I'm not sure I really fly high :)
choroba should make his presentation scaffolding public
[Corion]: choroba: spod5 converts pod to S5 HTML, so it's also still basic. I find the lack of animations (in the sense of "highlight this", "highlight that" in code) somewhat tedious as I do it with rendered PNGs
[Corion]: I haven't found a good way to include/use the source SVGs I use for creating the PNGs directly as animations
[ambrus]: Presentations come in many different shapes, and so slides do as well.
[Corion]: Doing that in Powerpoint or Ooxml would be nice(r) but I'm much quicker doing the outline of a presentation and the code as Pod
[Corion]: Hurrr - on a machine that is behaving weirdly, I have two processes CROND running. I guess that is the source of unattended jobs sometimes not finding their files anymore...
[ambrus]: Most of the time if I make slides, they're just a formatted document with a medium level of formality (between a well written article and an informal draft), with usually the page breaks chosen carefully and possibly some content repeated between pages.
[Corion]: ambrus: My slides are mostly a list of things I want to talk about. But sometimes I want to point out interesting parts, or build up a larger image from small components. This is where animations/ highlights would come in well
[choroba]: what I like about slides in HTML + CSS is I can use templates to produce them, which means all code in slides is tested, and I can version them in git
