This is my first Perl 5 post ever. 哈哈
<masak> while I'm here, I'd like to talk about Modern Perl. <masak> in y'all's opinion, what are the modules a Modern Perl 5 user should be aware of? <masak> I'm thinking of things like Moose, List::Util, maybe Catalyst... <claes> it all depends on what the task is <lucs> masak: 5.10 in general maybe <claes> using warnings, strict and perhaps indirect pragmas <masak> I think things that we take for granted as good time-savers all qualify. <masak> so maybe stuff like Getopt::Long too. <claes> personaly I don't use Moose because I haven't had any use for it yet <masak> for me as a Perl 6 user, it's not that difficult to see the use for Moose. <masak> I saw a blog post recently that said that Moose even helped the blogger document things more succinctly. <masak> that is, even when he wasn't using Moose, he was using habits gained from it to write better documentation. <Hinrik> Perl::Critic, definitely <claes> Devel::NYTProf <Hinrik> some of the eventy things (AnyEvent, Coro, POE) too, if that's what your app requires <Hinrik> and the various Test::* modules, of course <masak> Hinrik: which ones, more exactly? <Hinrik> Test::More usually works for me, along with some other specialized ones depending on the typo of app <Hinrik> e.g. Test::Script to test if scripts compile <Hinrik> masak: oh, and Devel::Cover is also quite helpful in determining test coverage <cfedde> see also Modern::Perl <cfedde> I think that the standard template will become 'use Modern::Perl; use Moose'
Feel the need to add something to the list? The comments are open.
