in thread Perl is not Dynamically Parseable

The code examples for the TPR undecidability series were intended as thought problems. Typically they were meant to fail in thought-provoking ways, ways that were usually unexpected. Truly not the kind of code you'd like to maintain.

In one of my TPR drafts, I said that, if you read my code without understanding its objective, you'd think the proof was that I have no idea how to write code. I think that remark wound up on the cutting room floor.

[stevieb]: I've finally added the ability for berrybrew to fetch the list of perls available directly from Strawberry's releases.json file. Instead of pulling from there on every single call, I've added a berrybrew fetch, so it's only updated..
[stevieb]: ...on request. There's some supporting work I need to do, as well as update the docs, but it's in the v1.12 branch if anyone wants to play with it...
[stevieb]: ...issue 62 will track what else needs to be done.
