Man, reputer is going to answer all my reputation questions.Here are some comments I have after having had a bit of a play with it.

  • The documentation is extremely good and to the point. Too bad there is not a lot of it :)
  • When you run reputer and click on its link to come to this page, the URL appears as which makes things barf later on. This could be because I set my "domain" as (note the trailing slash).
  • When I started it up, the script died with a mysterious error (okay, it coughed up the line number). Turns out that in sub getsave had code like
    open(DAT,"> $_[0]") or die "$!";
    I think it's better to be more explicit about what's going on
    open(DAT,"> $_[0]") or die "open $_[0] for output: $!";
  • From here I was able to figure out what was going on, namely, a place to write the reputer data files, which gets back to the documentation... it's takes a bit of sleuthing to find out what the script wants in order to get it going. Some of the things included: setting up a directory chowned to nobody, fixing the shebang line
  • When I ran the script with warnings enabled it spewed loads of messages into the error_log. Are you interested in patches?
  • Is your spacebar broken? A little whitespace would go along way to lightening up the code and making it a bit readable, e.g. lining up assignments, a space between my and the variable it declares

More later as I play further.
