Yanick Champoux (yanick): Deduping 100 Gigs Worth of Files? Gimme 5 Minutes...

Shortly before the Holidays, I became aware of the Dallas/Fort Worth Perl Mongers Winter Hackaton Contest. The challenge was simple enough: here's a directory structure filled with 100G worth of files, go and find all the duplicate files in there, as [...]

prashanth: Helmut Wollmersdorfer: Credit the first or last uploader on meta::cpan?

Credit problem


This post is related to the post the "credit the last uploader" problem by RJBS.

A related thread on twitter caused IMHO more misunderstandings than solutions. Twitter is not the best medium to discuss complex problems.

Ricardo SIGNES (rjbs): the "credit the last uploader" problem

First, a refresher…

At its simplest, the CPAN is a bunch of files and an index. The index directs you from package names to the files that contain the latest authorized release of that package. Everything else builds on top of that.

If you want to publ [...]

If you are maintaining your own DarkPAN (e.g. using OrePAN or CPAN::Mini::Inject), the recent versions of lcpan can now also index your DarkPAN too, so you can query various stuffs about your DarkPAN like you would a normal mini CPAN mirror. Previous [...]

fREW Schmidt (fREW): Announcing cgid

This post is an announcement of cgid.

Over the past week I developed a small UCSPI based single-file CGI server. The usage is very simple, due to the nature of the tool. Here’s a quick example of how I use it:

#!/bin/nosh

Dave Rolsky (autarch): Hacking on Perl 6 (Rakudo and Roast)
I found a bug in Perl 6 recently. Really I independently discovered one that was already reported. Here’s how to trigger it: [crayon-56b7af3938412337011115/] Any numerator of 231 or greater causes that error. Note that Perl 6 is perfectly happy [...]
Gabor Szabo (szabgab): Switching Gears? Changing direction?
I have been struggling with what I am doing for quite some time. I keep seeing the evidence that the user-base of Perl is shrinking. While you can't see from these numbers, but the Perl Maven has not gaing more readers since February 2015. But I stil [...]

Reini Urban (rurban): Memory savings with cperl and AvSTATIC
B::C and cperl has now proper support for copy-on-grow (COG) and copy-on-write (COW) arrays. COG means that the array of SV* pointers is allocated by the compiler statically, not dynamically, and that the cperl runtime creates a new array whenever [...]
