in reply to Perl Job

Thanks all for your answers and advice. Although this is slightly off topic, I am wondering if I won't apply for some kind of e-working, because working at home can be really cool I think. This might not give me big bucks, but maybe give me a life :-)! More seriously, I believe that projects such as e-work projects are more focused, and probably that by reading their topic I'll know right away whether it is perl-ish or not.
What do you think?

[haukex]: But I was just using it as an author test anyway
[Corion]: haukex: Aaah - I thought you were still running these tests on every machine, but you only run these as author or Devel::Cover tests
[Corion]: haukex: Yeah, I think back then I used Test::Inline, which used a pod parser that was going through some changes and I didn't want to cater for all the various versions and thus stopped testing the Pod completely
[choroba]: I usually do this with presentations
[Corion]: But now I think statically (re)generating the Pod tests is a saner approach, and likely I'll regenerate the tests either in Makefile.PL or from xt/ but have them live below t/
[choroba]: I keep the snippets in files of their own, and use a Makefile to syntax highlight them and insert them into slides, while also running them and inserting the output if required
[Corion]: choroba: Ooooh - I didn't think of that! I write my presentations as POD and if it "roughly" looks like Perl code, I should also syntax-check that...
[haukex]: Yes sorry I don't run them all the time, my POD tests are only run as author tests (and are excluded when I'm using Devel::Cover)
[Corion]: choroba: Hmm - no, I keep the snippets inline, but as my framework also has support for capturing output etc., maybe I should do the same...
[Corion]: haukex: Yes, that approach is sane, and it heals the fragility of Pod parsers in a nice way while still syntax-checking stuff
