( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
While not exactly what was proposed here, another possible idea in the vein of perl golf is to have people solve a problem, using a fixed number of variables or functions. Eg: "Write a sort subrouting without using the sort function, and only one temporary variable." (I dunno if this can be done, I only offer it as an example of what can be done). Maybe call it "Junkyard Perl" or the like. (This is similar to a suggestion above, but making it a bit more explicit.)

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
    a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
  • You may need to use entities for some characters, as follows. (Exception: Within code tags, you can put the characters literally.)
            For:     Use:
    & &amp;
    < &lt;
    > &gt;
    [ &#91;
    ] &#93;

    [erix]: then you might as well send that patch to the DBIC guys :)
    [Corion]: erix: Yeah, I just found that it has no documentation at all on how to circumvent/ eliminate "1+n SELECTs" by building a local hash... I guess I have to make ->has_many do the hash lookup instead of doing the SQL query. But as the problem ...
    [Corion]: ... has only manifested itself so far through the puzzled questions of other bystanders, I won't go deeper at this time. But the DBIx::Class documentation could well do with a document on how to make "it" (that is, ORMs in general) faster ;)
    [Corion]: I find that DBIx::Class, like most ORMs makes things easy until they become performance critical and then makes it horribly hard to change things because the design is highly inflexible if you don't already know about the problems of 1+n :-/
    [choroba]: that's why I don't like similar libraries. They pretend you don't have to learn SQL, but in the end, you have to learn how SQL plus to overcome their own limitations
    [Corion]: "Just write the proper SQL beforehand" is of course the appropriate solution, but if you did that, you wouldn't/couldn't use DBIx::Class either. At least not in an obvious (to me) way.
    choroba scratches a "how"
    [Corion]: choroba: Exactly... But maybe that's just because I'm old and grumpy ;)
