in thread Rediscovering fixed bugs

For the record, I'm not using perlbrew for this. Instead, I've written a perl script (using the system perl) which will build perl and all 100+ modules from source tarballs, including some patch files for cases where the module just won't compile/test clean (usually on AIX). I've got my modules in three categories, though I'm about to merge two of them: dev, test, and modules. For the distribution that will ship, I'm not going to build dev or test, but if I want to ensure they all work on each platform I can at least throw in test temporarily just to be sure. Meanwhile, I'm expecting dev boxes to use all of them. If I'm not testing, I also have in that build-perl script code to rewrite Makefile.PL/Build.PL files to remove Test::* dependencies.

The dev directory has things like Term::ReadLine::Perl (for making the perl debugger easier to use), PPI (for automated code manipulation), and Enbugger (and their prereqs not met in the modules directory). The test directory has a bunch of Test::*, but also HTTP::Daemon (for testing AnyEvent::HTTP, I think), Sub::Uplevel, and others.

I can rebuild from scratch in ~10 minutes on my Linux box. It's a bit longer on AIX. Possibly because I do most of my building on Linux on an SSD drive :-)

[marto]: I read about a case where people were at a launderette, or whatever they're called in the US, and as a joke, put their toddler in with the washing, then closed the door
[Your Mother]: (Work in progress.)
[marto]: unaware that the model in question started the cycle automatically, provided the money/token had already been provided
[marto]: CCTV footage of the joke gone wrong is used in educational materials now IIRC
[ambrus]: oiskuu: definitely not silly. have you ever tried to remove cat hair or dog hair from clothes? for many clothes, it's pretty hard, and running the washing machine with a cat inside would get the hair on everything.
[oiskuu]: YM, I'm interested in your questions... maybe start a a thread at polls.
[oiskuu]: marto, it ended badly? I doubt the power is easy to plug at those installations?
[marto]: oiskuu sadly yes
