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.

[choroba]: I often can't log in to pause. But after it fails for the first time, everything works for the second time.
[cavac]: Ok, thanks for the information
[choroba]: Yes, tried now. Login didn't show the login window at all, timed out, but worked for the second time instantly.
[choroba]: Trying the daemon log...
[choroba]: It seems very slow. But the internet is weird here in Vietnam...
[choroba]: again, stopping it and trying for the second time fixed the problem
