Mark Lentcznerâ€™s updated the Periodic Table of the Operators for Perl 6. At some point, Perl 6 might be done. That will be an apocalypse, alright.

Python is science fiction, Java is literary fiction, and Ruby on Rails is store-bought steampunk goggles*. Cynthia emailed me about Cat Valente’s funny post about programming languages as literary genres this morning. Liz Henry has a write-up too. * for the record, my steampunk goggles were bought off of Etsy.
Rafe’s looking at weblog management systems. He started with WordPress, and was asked to try out Moveable Type too. Now he’s set up Moveable Type, WordPress, S9Y, and Textpattern. I’m interested in his opinion because I’m weighing moving this weblog to one of those systems, or moving everything to Live Journal where I have a [...]
I’m a little bothered by all the sniping between the various scripting language camps: Lisp bashes Python, Perl bashes PHP, everyone bashes Java. But anyone can walk up, hand $10 to a hosting company, and start serving PHP + MySQL applications. If you want to run Perl, Python, Ruby or anything else, you need to [...]
My girlfriend the chemist thought Mark Lentczner’s periodic table of Perl 6 Operators was a hoot.
I think you need at least two servers to run Moveable Type in a shared environment. Note: this is idle Sunday afternoon speculation. Why: because the more posts you have, the more work there is to update all the static files in reaction to a change (new post, edit post, trackback, comment.) More weblogs on [...]
[ via Need To Know ] I was impressed with the rationale for a Lisp to Perl compiler: Also, because I could and because it was fun. I have used it succesfully for a fairly large project at work involving translating XML from one form to another. Um, he does know there’s already a perfectly [...]
Simon Cozens, a programmer, preacher, and translator, took Sei Shonagon’s Pillow Book, documenting 10th Century CE life in the Japanese Court, and translated it as if it were written in the style of a young woman’s Live Journal: [ From things that piss Shonagon off ] When someone gets ill and you call the exorcist [...]
It’s December, and time for the 2003 Perl Advent Calendar.
More on mail to RSS: Justin Mason wrote a perl script to scrape a MailMan archive page and get RSS out the other side.
From the Cocoon Wiki, a list of open source and proprietary projects similar to Apache Cocoon. From that list, mod_murka looks neat. It looks for a cached HTML version of the request URI, and if it’s not found, looks for the .xml file, transforms it using whatever stylesheet’s mentioned in the file’s processing instruction, and [...]
Simon Woodside’s Alexandra demonstrates getting data from an XML document into a HTML form, and updating the original document. It’s built to run on AxKit, but ought to be adaptable to run under Cocoon. He’s using Relax NG as the schema language because a Relax document is an XML document, and Relax, unlike XML Schema [...]
On hacking Keynote’s XML files with Perl.
From the 2002 Perl Advent Calendar: WWW::Mechanize. It’s a module that builds on LWP and provides a browser-like interface. No Buffy examples this time, the author digs into the Internet Movie Database and Grosse Point Blank instead.
