Be nice, Rolf. Maybe he'll write a new app for Dragon Speech Recognition that will allow it to recognize Perl syntax. :)

    I'm nice AND funny! (and ironic)

    Actually recognizing source code from speech should be much easier, since running syntax checks on plain talk is not as trivial.

    But this sytem should include eye-tracking, most hackers wouldn't want to place the cursor by speech only ...

    If so, he should really use the comic profanity convention. Programming in Perl would be like a George Carlin routine.
      Oh you are talking about SymbolSwearing?

      Took me a while, other cultures have less problems with the Seven_Dirty_Words.

      But under the assumption that they shouldn't be used as identifiers in source code, they'd form excellent free replacements for punctuation (well at least the one-syllable ones).

      That would prevent name space pollution!

      In other words: say

      • "s#!t"╣ => $

        but

      • "dollar" => dollar

        such that

      • "s#!t dollar" => $dollar

      and so on.

      so @{ $job->( "name" ) }

      would be something like

      cock▓ tits shit job piss darn name darn fuck cunt @ { $ job ( " name " ) }

      Please note: In Perl's good old mnemonic style, I tried to use "natural" pairs like "(piss-fuck)" and "{tits-cunt}"...

      BUT I'm not confident about the encoding, cause I'm no native swearer! :-(

      Could you please help me?

      Cheers Rolf

      ╣) augmented spelling for the American market

      ▓) update: corrected syntax error s/ f*ck / c*ck /

        Not a bad first-effort, but everyone knows that "tits" shouldn't be on the list because they're a snack. :)

[Corion]: WTF? There is a dev release of Danga::Socket?! I thought that module died a long time ago?! According to its changes, the last release was in 2008 ;)
[Corion]: (and Brad Fitzpatrick long since moved on to Go ;) )
[Corion]: But who am I to worry about necrocpan - I'm revisiting my online banking module, and also I'll somewhat revive WWW::Mechanize:: Firefox, at least if the test suite passes under the Waterfox browser ...
[Corion]: Maybe I should look through my CPAN releases and revisit them in order of last release and think about what to do with the modules :)
[marto]: this cpan day there should be a call to remove old crud :P
[marto]: as well as encourage active development
