by cog (Parson)
on Jun 29, 2006 at 05:20 UTC ( #558220=perlmeditation: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??

So yesterday I gave a talk on Acme modules.

20 minutes.

60 modules.

Here are my slides (new window), and here is the content of that talk:


1 - Acme::ProgressBar, by Ricardo Signes

A simple progress bar for the patient

use Acme::ProgressBar; progress { sleep 5; }

2 - Acme::Apache::Werewolf, by Rich Bowen

Keeps werewolves out of a directory during the full moon

<Directory /fullmoon> PerlAccessHandler Acme::Apache::Werewolf PerlSetVar MoonLength 4 </Directory>

3 - Acme::Current, by Jesse Vincent

Determine current year, month, day (GMT)

use Acme::Current; printf "It's now %04d/%02d/%02d.\n", $Acme::Current::YEAR, $Acme::Current::MONTH, $Acme::Current::DAY;

"as long as all you want is the current date (GMT-based), and you keep the module up to date."


4 - Acme::Time::Baby, by Abigail

Tell time little children can understand

use Acme::Time::Baby; print babytime;

Prints "The big hand is on the five and the little hand is on the four"


5 - Acme::No, by Geoffrey Young

Makes no() work the way I want it to

use 5.6; # I use our(), so 5.6 is required no 6.0; # but this was coded for perl 5, not perl 6 # and the perl 6 compat layer isn't really 5.6 # so my code breaks under 6.0 use mod_perl 1.27; # we need at least version 1.27 no mod_perl 2.0; # but mod_perl 2.0 is entirely different than 1. +0 # so keep my cpan email to a minimum

FEATURES/BUGS: "probably lots"


6 - Acme::MetaSyntactic, by Philippe "Book" Bruhat

    You missed my favorite - Acme::Magpie - "steals shiny things".

    The Magpie is a bird known for stealing shiny things to build its nest from, Acme::Magpie attempts to be a software emulation of this behaviour. When invoked Acme::Magpie scans the symbol tables of your program and stores attractive (shiny) methods in the %Acme::Magpie::Nest hash.

    Though I suppose you probably missed lots of other's "favorites" too. :-)

    Update:Do'h! I didn't see until later that you asked earlier for input on this.
