The Call for Papers for The Perl and Raku Conference 2024 is now open!

From the TPRF website, "TPRC 2024 is being held in Las Vegas, NV from June 24-28 2024." The organizing committe has a few surprises lined up -- there will be more information to come.

      Good to see you back! One of the few pioneer monks from 2000 still posting ... perhaps most famous for your pivotal role in creating the legend of paco.

      On seeing you using an emoji, I could not restrain myself from trying to concoct one for you.

      Perl MonkEmojiNotes
      Ovid📜🪶An attempt to represent famous Roman poet Ovid
      Ovid⭕📼The letter O and a video

      Suggestions for alternative Ovid emojis welcome. :-)

      Output using kcott's uparse tool

      ~/pm/kcott$ ./uparse-2.pl 📜🪶
      
      ============================================================
      String: '📜🪶'
      ============================================================
      📜      U+1F4DC  SCROLL
      🪶      U+1FAB6  FEATHER
      ------------------------------------------------------------
      
      ~/pm/kcott$ ./uparse-2.pl ⭕📼
      
      ============================================================
      String: '⭕📼'
      ============================================================
      ⭕      U+2B55   HEAVY LARGE CIRCLE
      📼      U+1F4FC  VIDEOCASSETTE

      Updated: added Output using kcott's uparse tool and See Also sections

        G'day 👁️🍾👍🦟,

        "Suggestions for alternative Ovid emojis welcome. :-) "

        Having seen a fair amount of his code, maybe:

        $ uparse 🐪🧙
        
        ============================================================
        String: '🐪🧙'
        ============================================================
        🐪      U+1F42A  DROMEDARY CAMEL
        🧙      U+1F9D9  MAGE
        ------------------------------------------------------------
        

        While I don't imagine O'Reilly would have a problem with that, if they did:

        $ uparse 🧅🧙
        
        ============================================================
        String: '🧅🧙'
        ============================================================
        🧅      U+1F9C5  ONION
        🧙      U+1F9D9  MAGE
        ------------------------------------------------------------
        

        or

        $ uparse 🦪🧙
        
        ============================================================
        String: '🦪🧙'
        ============================================================
        🦪      U+1F9AA  OYSTER
        🧙      U+1F9D9  MAGE
        ------------------------------------------------------------
        

        [For those unfamiliar with the O'Reilly/Perl/Camel issue, "Open Letter To Tim O'Reilly To Free The Perl Camel" was the most recent reference I could find. It also includes a lot of background and historical information.]

        As a bit of a tongue-in-cheek suggestion to close on, whenever I see "Curtis 'Ovid' Poe", I immediately think of "Edgar Allan Poe", so perhaps just this would suffice:

        $ uparse 😱
        
        ============================================================
        String: '😱'
        ============================================================
        😱      U+1F631  FACE SCREAMING IN FEAR
        ------------------------------------------------------------
        

        ☺️
