Re: How to write out a Perl script and run it in as few keystrokes as possible.

in reply to How to write out a Perl script and run it in as few keystrokes as possible.

While this is perhaps particular to my programming style, I have a window open that runs a "runtests" script on a loop. Inside 'runtests' (a plain old sh script) I run whatever I'm working on (usually a perl script) and end with a 5 second delay.

This allows me to change the delay or even the script arguments without interrupting the test loop script.

I find it's a remarkably handy way of keeping focus in the editor and looking over to see if tests are failing or the script is blowing up.

[perldigious]: Mine too thezip, especially my German Shepherd. He looks like he is about to die of heat exhaustion all summer, so he goes nuts when winter comes and he can play in the snow.
[stevieb]: my main off-road vehicle nowadays is a strengthened mercedes ML320. I'm very hard on it, but I've never had any real issues at all (I love how small and light it is, and it has a very, very good centre of gravity for how I roll)
[perldigious]: "for how I roll"... ahhh, I see what you did there stevieb.
