    Hi Monks, i have some code that works pretty fine with MongoDB v0.705.0.0 :
    use Data::Dumper; use DateTime::Format::Strptime; use POSIX qw(strftime); use MongoDB; use Data::Structure::Util qw( unbless ); use strict; use warnings; my $mongoclient = MongoDB::MongoClient->new( host => '127.0.0.1', port => 27017 ); my $db = $mongoclient->get_database('database'); my $collect = $db->get_collection('collection')->aggregate([ {'$group' => { '_id' => {_path => '$path' , _ip => '$IP', _time => '$TIME'}, '_count' => { '$sum' => 1}, '_docs' => { '$push' => '$_id' } } }, { '$match' => { '_count' => { '$gt' => 1} }} ]); my $mongo_aggregate = unbless $collect; my @out = (@$mongo_aggregate); print Dumper @out;
    I receive a few thousand results what is expected and checked in database....so far so good...On another system with MongoDB v1.2.2 i receive only 101 results:
    use Data::Dumper; use DateTime::Format::Strptime; use POSIX qw(strftime); use MongoDB; use Data::Structure::Util qw( unbless ); use strict; use warnings; my $mongoclient = MongoDB::MongoClient->new( host => '127.0.0.1', port => 27017 ); my $db = $mongoclient->get_database('database'); my $collect = $db->get_collection('collection')->aggregate([ {'$group' => { '_id' => {_path => '$path' , _ip => '$IP', _time => '$TIME'}, '_count' => { '$sum' => 1}, '_docs' => { '$push' => '$_id' } } }, { '$match' => { '_count' => { '$gt' => 1} }} ]); my $mongo_aggregate = unbless $collect->{'_docs'}; my @out = (@$mongo_aggregate); print Dumper @out;
    If i dump my $collect i found a hint that says: '_batch_size' => 101 I believe thats the point where im stucking. I dont know how to solve the issue nor i can fix that with documentation (as im advanced beginner). Can someone please shed some light on me, please. Thanks, regards,
Prototypes required even after mocking a sub

    So, I had a user of my Mock::Sub distribution file an issue report where trying to mock a subroutine that has prototypes threw a warning. After monkeying about with it, I was able to quell said warnings, but it raised something else that I don't understand. I'll post some code and context, then get to what I'm hoping to have answered.

    This is a runnable example based on the snippet that the user reported:

    use warnings; use strict; use Mock::Sub; my $m = Mock::Sub->new; sub foo ($$$){ return undef; } my $foo_sub = $m->mock('foo');

    Result:

    Prototype mismatch: sub main::foo ($$$) vs none at /home/stevieb/perl5 +/perlbrew/perls/perl-5.26.1/lib/site_perl/5.26.1/Mock/Sub/Child.pm li +ne 122. Prototype mismatch: sub main::foo: none vs ($$$) at /home/stevieb/perl +5/perlbrew/perls/perl-5.26.1/lib/site_perl/5.26.1/Mock/Sub/Child.pm l +ine 140.

    All well and good. As a response to the user, I drummed up a test script with a signal handler to catch Prototype warnings, and just evaporate them (I'll incorporate this into the distribution directly if the reporter is satisfied, enabled only if requested explicitly):

    use warnings; use strict; use feature 'say'; use Mock::Sub; $SIG{__WARN__} = sub {say $_[0] if $_[0] !~ /Prototype/}; my $m = Mock::Sub->new; sub foo ($$$){ say "hello!"; # doesn't get called return undef; } my $foo = $m->mock('foo'); $foo->return_value('test'); say foo(1, 2, 3); say foo(1, 2, 3); say foo(1, 2, 3); say $foo->called_count;

    That code does the right thing, insofar that the mocked sub is properly called and the prototype warnings are no longer displayed:

    test test test 3

    Now, what I found while testing, is that initially, I called foo() with no parameters, but the prototype stuck, resulting in fatality. Instead of foo(1, 2, 3); (proper number of params), I had just foo(), and...

    Not enough arguments for main::foo at mock.pl line 21, near "()" Execution of mock.pl aborted due to compilation errors.

    All I do when I mock out a sub, is overwrite the symbol table for it (actual code from the module):

    { no strict 'refs'; no warnings 'redefine'; my $mock = $self; weaken $mock; *$sub = sub { @{ $mock->{called_with} } = @_; ++$mock->{called_count}; if ($mock->{side_effect}) { if (wantarray){ my @effect = $mock->{side_effect}->(@_); return @effect if @effect; } else { my $effect = $mock->{side_effect}->(@_); return $effect if defined $effect; } } return if ! defined $mock->{return}; if ($mock->{return}[0] && $mock->{return}[0] eq 'params'){ return ! wantarray ? $_[0] : @_; } else { return ! wantarray && @{ $mock->{return} } == 1 ? $mock->{return}[0] : @{ $mock->{return} }; } }; }

    My question here, is if the symtab entry was overwritten correctly (ie. the mocked sub is most definitely called as desired), why does perl still think that it requires the prototyped parameters? Clearly, that information is stored somewhere, but where and how?

    Can someone point me in a direction I can look down to understand this, or even explain it to me?

    Thanks, as always,

Win32::OLE on cygwin64, can't make OLE.xs

    Fellow monks,

    I can't install Win32::OLE 0.1712 on my cygwin64. I already changed stricmp into strcasecmp by means of look Win32::OLE, but make Win32::OLE now gives me an unexpected error:

    OLE.xs:925:17: fout: formaat is geen stringconstante en er zijn geen f +ormaat-argumenten [-Werror=format-security] warn(SvPVX(sv));

    As my cygwin64 is in dutch, it reads: error: format is no string constant and there are no format arguments.

    Any ideas on how to proceed? Do I log a bug in cpan for this module or is there a depency on some sort of cygwin library that I am missing?

    Hi guys,

    I'm very frustrated with this code

    #!/usr/bin/perl -w # a simple web crawler use strict; use LWP::Simple; my $url = shift || die 'Please provide an initial url after filename!' +; my $max = 10; my $html = get($url); my @urls; while ($url =~ s/(https:\/\/\S+)[">]//) { push @urls, $1; print @urls; } mkdir "web" , 0755; open (URLMAP, ">", "web/url.map" ) || die ("can't open web\/url.map\n" +); my $count = 0; for (my $i=0; $i<$max; $i++) { my $source = $urls[int(rand($#urls+1))]; getstore($source, 'web/$count.html'); print URLMAP "$count\n$source\n"; $count++; } close URLMAP;

    I'm trying to eventually get the prices and company names, so for example for this part of the site https://www.money.co.uk/travel-money/japanese-yen-exchange-rate.htm I want to get the prices on offer into an array in order (highest first), maybe keeping a note of the company name so may need a hash or array of hashes.
    That's the end goal, but stuck on the first hurdle, which is viewing the sites html in files where i can search the prices, then extract them from the files!!! If you can think of a better way and point me in the right direction on finding the solution, I'm all ears! Thanks in advance!

    Please help!

returning to the outer loop

    This is greatly simplified - I hope it makes sense. :)

    I am trying to loop over rows of an array doing a test. If the test fails, I want to go all the way back to the outer loop, which the documentation suggests will work only with foreach.

    #!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; my @x = ( ['aaaaa', 'bbbbb', 'ccccc', 'ddddd',], ['eeeee', 'fffff', 'ggggg', 'hhhhh',], ['iiiii', 'jjjjj', 'kkkkk', 'lllll',], ); for my $i (1 .. 1000) { for my $a (@x) { my $ifails = 0; for my $j (0 .. (scalar @$a) - 1 ) { <get external data string for pattern matching here, put i +n $c> if ($c =~ /$a->[$j]/) { $ifails++; } } if ($ifails > 1) { want to go to outer loop here, and not proc +ess the next (and subsequent) row(s) } } }

    Is there some way of doing that? Note that in the actual application, I do have more more processing below the inner loop, so a "last" statement at the test doesn't work.

    Thank you in advance.

    Hi, I am looking for a cross-platform GUI toolkit for Perl that can have animatable 2D textures & buttons (animatable position / rotation) , some thing that can work well with card games and board games and look nice.

    Using Perl/TK at the moment but I don't think it is best suited for this task. Any suggestions are welcome. Thanks

    It gives me result as array : $VAR1 = 'ARRAY(0x7f82c3792848)';

    How can I flatten this kind of array into string. Thanks!!
In Net::DNS::RR what is the 'can' method?
1 direct reply — Read more / Contribute
by Lotus1
on Sep 19, 2018 at 14:01

    This is from the examples section of Net::DNS :

    use Net::DNS; my $res = Net::DNS::Resolver->new; my $reply = $res->search("www.example.com", "A"); if ($reply) { foreach my $rr ($reply->answer) { print $rr->address, "\n" if $rr->can("address"); } } else { warn "query failed: ", $res->errorstring, "\n"; }

    The search method in the resolver returns a packet object. Then the 'answer' method of that (from Net::DNS::Packet) "Returns a list of Net::DNS::RR objects representing the answer section of the packet." I've looked through the documentation for Net::DNS::RR and the module sourch but can't find the description of what the 'can' method is. The example runs without errors while using strict and warnings. Any suggestions?

Perl not recognizing Chinese

    I am trying to use Perl to excerpt lines of Chinese poetry from web pages where they are embedded in lots of HTML. According to my copy of the "Programming Perl" book, any version from 5.6 on should deal with Unicode happily -- the Perl on my Mac is many versions later than that. But when I run the script I've written over one of these web pages, where Chinese graphs ("characters") should be printed out I just see question marks. Odder still, there seem to be exactly three question marks per Chinese graph; so far as I know, Unicode uses two bytes per character.

    I'm not even sure whether this is a Perl question; I am wondering whether Chinese has been encoded on the web page in some way other than via Unicode. But however it has been encoded, my web browser (Firefox) and my text editor (BBEdit) seem to recognise it fine. I am really at a loss as to how to approach this problem.

    I probably should add that my Perl status is probably "intermediate". I have used the language a fair amount, for real tasks rather than just playing, but have never needed to move beyond the core language -- I have never used "pragmas", for instance.

    Any advice much appreciated!
