erudil, well done!

This set me thinking about the Monastery, the 'heirarchy' tied (no pun intended - well, maybe not) to the gradients of canonization <initiate .. saint> here at PerlMonks, and led me to the thought of Perl certification. :)

(I know, wars have started over lesser controversies.)

Should there ever be a recognized, respectable source of such certification (a seminary?), should it:

  • Certify in gradients based on tested levels of expertise, and call each level by PM's ecclesiastical titles?
  • Have the issued certificates presided over by a Bishop with full authority to issue, restest and revoke?
  • Have a board responsible for standardizing levels of expertise (the catechism), mandating recertification timing, etc? (college of cardinals?)
  • Hmmm. Would we ever end up with our own Knights Templar? lol
  • and just maybe, the powers-that-be might get us a better calendar...

What have I missed?

But we need to stay away from that Celibacy concept...

    [shmem]: ..the result from the pattern match
    [Lady_Aleena]: tobyink, I did after I failed to get the BLOCK to work. I can't seem to get my brain around grep BLOCK, though I'm okay with grep EXPR.
    [shmem]: so in the second example grep returns all true elements of the list passed
    [Lady_Aleena]: Okay, so grep BLOCK is not like map BLOCK where something might need to be returned at the end.
    [tobyink]: grep { $_ =~ /.*$in.*/; } @my_modules should work just fine. The problem is that you were adding on ;$_ at the end of the block. Why were you doing that?
    [Lady_Aleena]: tobyink, I was thinking map.
    [tobyink]: Something does need to be returned at the end not $_ though. You need to return (something that will be evaluated as) a boolean.
    [Lady_Aleena]: Here is a longish map I did in the same script. my @my_modules = map { my $file = $_; $file =~ s/$module_director y(.+)\.pm/$1/; $file =~ s/\//::/g; $file; } @files;
    [Lady_Aleena]: I spent half an hour trying to figure out why map was rewriting @files.
    [tobyink]: If you like map you can do map { ($_ =~ /.*$in.*/) ? $_ : () } @my_modules and it will work just the same. grep is neater though.
