techcode has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Hello fellow Monks.

Some time ago somehow I ended up on a site that contained reviews of Perl modules from CPAN. Now I cant find it again - and it seems that I forgot to bookmark it :eek: All I know is that guy is testing different module, one per day, for ~ 25 days around new year - for past 3, 4 or 5 years. And that there were quite nice modules mentioned there - that I haven't heard of before.

Does anyone knows what that site is?

It also got me thinking - are there places for things like that? I know for but IMHO it's only good only when you know what you are searching for (a review for known module) ...

Have you tried freelancing? Check out Scriptlance - I work there.

      Yes! That's the one.

      I've tried to find it by Goggling without success. Imagine that - and I had all those "details" but still nothing.

      It will be a long time until SE start to think like humans I guess :D

        Beer goggling...? Well, that's your trouble right there. The code will always look better than it really is.

[shmem]: Discipulus: the <<>> operator is quite new, it is in perl5.24 for instance
[Discipulus]: ah! thanks shmem it works in strawberry 5.24
[shmem]: ah. Introduced in 5.22.0, see perl5220delta
[Discipulus]: if so the previous error is a bit misleading, anyway
[shmem]: well, previous to that << was always treated as the left-shift operator
[Eily]: or the here-doc operator
[Eily]: which is actually how it is parsed in this case
[shmem]: older versions of perl can't guess that "use of <<>> may be implemented someday" :D
Discipulus how much wise my brothers are? ;=)
