    By now you've all seen The St. Larry Wall Shrine. Well, it could use a fresh coat of gold leaf and shellac. Therefore, we are soliciting Larry-related items to be placed on the shrine. Links to offsite content are good; or if you have small bits of content, such as quotes, you'd like to contribute, that's fine too. Please reply to this Quest with your humble offerings. Thank you! And may St. Larry bless your codings and your debuggings.

List::Gen revivified

    After more than ten years of hibernation I was able to waken List::Gen and fix some tests that failed since v5.19 including "fails on bleadperl" and a reported bug "primes incorrect for 664580, and slow".

    The new version is currently available on my github repo only, as the author is not responding. Does anybody have information about "Eric Strom" aka "ASG"? Otherwise I might try to get an indexing permission on CPAN as a co-maintainer, though I'm clueless regarding this process.

debugger watchpoint behavior

    Dear fellow monks!

    In my application I had my %hash; along with some imported modules.

    When my hash was populated completely (and should be constant afterwards), I wanted to see where and when $hash{'myEntry'} changed unexpectedly. But using a watchpoint w $hash{'myEntry'} in the debugger led to a lot of unwanted breaks: each time the package/module scope changed the visibility of %hash changed also, of course.

    Has anyone solved this problem of how to ignore breaks from visibility/scope changes?
