About Me

Jeff Pinyan. 7th of 8 children. Born in Waldwick, NJ. Living in Princeton, NJ with wife Kristin.

Born in November 1981. Started using Perl at age 15 or so. You do the math. A fair number of modules on CPAN.

Places of Interest

Sex, Eger!
reversing regular expressions, for fun and profit (see his web site)
Perl's Regex Engine causes me distress
why Perl's regex engine is as dumb as the character classes you feed it
Tie::AssignWrapper
really overloading the assignment operator, so that you can assign values to an object and let the class take care of the translation from native value to internal representation
Array One-Liners
randomizing (via Fisher-Yates), perfect shuffling, and cutting, each in just one sweet line of code (less than 80 characters)

[Corion]: And the second rule that I've learned is, that there is no one-off job, so writing a program for it pays off almost immediately. The third rule is to give all my programs numbers and have them reproduce that number in the name of their output files. :)
[Discipulus]: the true part is that also specification change between years.. but well our job is cheap but dont abuse of us.. ;=)
[LanX]: Choroba: do you miss chaos with ties? apply at the US government.. ;)
[ambrus]: Corion: those are good rules.
[ambrus]: Discipulus: oh sure. the input data has different filenames every time I get them.
[ambrus]: the directory structure may be 1, 2, or 3 deep, it may have spaces in the filename or not, it has dates in various format, different keywords for the same meanings, and the dates and other keywords are assembled in various ways.
[Discipulus]: no ambrus by specification i mean for example license per core instead of per socket, so fields are different
