in reply to MOPT-01 - assumptions and spaces

Computers do not think.

...

Programming is the art of thinking clearly,
and, A computer programmer is a human who's learned to think like a computer.

So, a computer programmer is a human who's learned not to think?

:-)

Nice article, by the way.

    And you think like a programmer :). This isn't meant to be insulting (as I'm sure it might be construed, although probably not by someone who thinks like a programmer) but it occurred to me that the way you honed in on that little logical gem is pretty good evidence that you have experience thinking like a computer (although the fact that you found it significant/amusing is wonderfully human).

[Corion]: haukex: Yes - I see the benefit of using Dist::Zilla for people with 150+ modules on CPAN, but I don't see it for myself, and I'm always put off from contributing to such modules because they require a lot of toolchain setup that I don't want to ...
[Corion]: ... spend time on if I only want to provide a short patch
[haukex]: Corion: Yes exactly, in the author tests I don't worry about portability as much, I also don't list the author tests' dependencies in Makefile.PL
[haukex]: I figure someone who wants to contribute will know how to install the missing modules ;-) Not the nicest way to go but I don't think many people are using my modules yet
[ambrus]: Corion: some of these stupid syntax highlighters assume that too. just look at the table in http://perldoc. perl.org/ functions/pack. html for example.
[haukex]: ..."yet" ;-) I haven't had to deal with Dist::Zilla yet but I've heard about how it's a big setup
