PERL Programming

PERL is among my favorite languages. I find that everyone has a different style when writing code in it. It is powerful with a lot of available CPAN modules, this makes development easier. I've seen some pretty amazing scripts...and some pretty unreadable perl code...well unreadable until you understand the meaning and the context, which requires knowledge. So it goes. line-noise to the uninitiated.
The Perl motto TMTOWTDI, "There's More Than One Way To Do It" ,pronounced "tim toady". Is no myth in Perl.

CPAN Notes

Many times when you write PERL code, you want to use modules. These modules usually reside on the CPAN sites (The CPAN Search Site - search.cpan.org). To install them, find the module, download and install.
CPAN module reviews
cpancover.com - CPAN Coverage report - created using Devel::Cover - Code coverage metrics for Perl - metacpan.org - Perl programming language
CPAN Testers Wiki - TestDuringInstall - become a CPAN Tester just by reading this and installing modules.

One nice utility I've found is the CPAN management shell.
Just run:
Then when you are inside the shell type:

This will automatically download, unpack, and install the app. It will also grab any deps. that are needed when installing! Very nice indeed. :) For more information about it, search for: CPAN on the CPAN search.
Here's a single liner to install a module from the CLI.

Also, if you for some reason need to reconfigure your CPAN options:

useful.things » Blog Archive » Perl CPAN reconfiguration - o conf init
you might as well follow prerequisites and permanently install things, don't u think?
CPAN automatically install all of the dependencies without prompting
o conf prerequisites_policy follow
o conf build_requires_install_policy yes
o conf commit

and if all else fails; throw away the prior config.
cd && mv .cpan .cpan-bak

upgrade all installed cpan modules

get yourself a drink, it might be a while. ppl are shipping code,doing work while you sleep. you can try running cpan -u and/or doing a upgrade on everything.

Life with CPAN
App::cpanminus - search.cpan.org - App::cpanminus - get, unpack, build and install modules from CPAN
CPAN dependencies and test results checker - using META.yml and META.json to work out deps, looking up modules, their deps and test results. Reverse lookup of modules using a dep is also possible.

CPAN wrong directory

I have had issues in the past when uninstalling and installing perl on machines with cpan using the wrong directory. If you find yourself with the same issue, try checking for a MyConfig.pm in your local directory. In windows, I found it in "Local Settings\Application Data\.cpan\CPAN\MyConfig.pm"

array returned as undef

This made me take a double take. Try out the following:
my @array = undef;

if(@array) {
 print "defined\n";
} else { 
 print "undefined\n";
You will find that you get a defined value back! So when you return an array, returning undef does not make the returning @array undef. Instead, use the empty array ().

subroutine arguments with default values (@_)

sub bar{
    my %args = (
        # Set your defaults/doc your accepted args here
        aNiceandLongName => 'default'
        @_ # Passed-in args replace your defaults
bar( aNiceandLongName => 'woodchuck');

issues I've found with Mojo,hypno,and mango

if you install EV on windows, morbo will crash telling you that "EV does not work with ithreads."
morbo startup failure on Windows 7 with Perl v5.14.2 built for MSWin32-x86-multi-thread · Issue #391 · kraih/mojo · GitHub - the solution is to "set MOJO_REACTOR=Mojo::IOLoop::Poll" which makes mojo not use EV for the event loop and instead uses a pure-Perl event loop that always works.

Looking at old code from github it looks like at one point mojo allowed the use of b() within templates. The code imports the Mojo::ByteStream module as 'b', but that doesn't flow through to the templates as it did?
Running example code I would get something like: Undefined subroutine &Mojo::Template::SandBox::b called at template
anyways, one solution as specified in the Mojo::Template docs, is to create a new Mojo::ByteSteam inline.
Replace b() with Mojo::ByteStream->new().

Sometimes I recieve a "Non-blocking operations in progress at Mango/Cursor.pm" when hosting out of hypnotoad.
