Top 10 reasons to start using ack

ack is a tool like grep, aimed at programmers with large trees of heterogeneous source code.

ack is written purely in Perl, and takes advantage of the power of Perl's regular expressions.

On 2005-10-14, I cleaned up some ancient cruft. The most interesting thing I found (and fixed) was the following. In the thread of Site How To (which, btw, is no longer an official site doc), some people had posted "root" question nodes as replies. Apparently they didn't know how to go to Seekers of Perl Wisdom and scroll to the bottom. So I yanked those nodes out and made them root nodes in the SoPW section. They were:

    [PerlSufi]choroba, you there?

    [MidLifeXis]nobody here but us camels.
    [Macslayer]I'm new here, but I have a quick question about syntax that I've recently seen being use.
    [Macslayer]What is it called when one declares a variable within a loop like this, but doesn't use an equals sign?
    [Macslayer]for my $my_graph (GD::Graph::bars->new, GD::Graph::hbars->new)
    [MidLifeXis]Are you talking about $my_graph, or the list of items inside of the parens?
    [Macslayer]I'm talking about $my_graph
    [Macslayer]I understand that the list of items in the parentheses are an array of sorts (in C terms).
    [MidLifeXis]I have heard it referred to as a loop variable. Checking to see what perlsyn calls it.
    [PerlSufi]ah, I forgot about of 0 offset of the array and then counting the elements with scalar , duh
    [MidLifeXis]I find the term 'loop variable' under the section 'Switching in a loop'. I would call it that, myself, but that is just MHO.
    [Macslayer]Yeah, that seems like what they should be called. Thanks! Apparently you can define them in a number of different ways, called compound statements, from within the loop construct.
    [MidLifeXis]Sort of. :-) The assignment is happening the same way, you are defining what the loop is iterating over. #technicality
    [MidLifeXis]MidLifeXis gets a chill from the amount of hand-waving he is doing.
    [MidLifeXis]Not a terribly important distinction at this point in time.
    [roboticus]I like loop variable,myself. In C we used to use "index variable", but since we're not always indexing arrays, it doesn't fit well.
    [MidLifeXis].oO( Woah. Drippings from supper-as-leftover-lunch must have been a bit higher in oils than what I had for supper. Need some Beverage::Hot->new to wash it down. )
    [MidLifeXis]Soap would work as well, I s'pose. Just wouldn't taste as good.
    [runrig]runrig prefers REST over SOAP...
    [jedikaiti]Hello Monks
    [tye]is there a good interactive biological taxonomy website that lets one drill down?
    [MidLifeXis]ISTR seeing one, so I think yes. .oO( don't ask the next question. Don't ask the next question.... )
    [tye]You'd think it'd be easy to make wikipedia actually function as such. Just make sure each article on one node of the tree has one section that includes the links to each ancestor node and a list of all child nodes (and even sibling nodes)
    [tye]ah, maybe the violet tables at the bottoms of the pages work for this.
