in reply to Are you using 5.10.0 ?

Yup, I'm using 5.10 everywhere but work, basically. There are a few really compelling things.

  • undefined val in string warnings tell you what var
  • the // operator is awesome
  • named captures in regex are a godsend
  • say is nice for quick scripts
Maybe in the next version ~~ will even be nice.

    I didn't know that existed!! I'm upgrading today.


    My criteria for good software:
    1. Does it work?
    2. Can someone else come in, make a change, and be reasonably certain no bugs were introduced?

    What's not nice about ~~ in 5.10.0?
