Perl Links

I usually try to provide some original thoughts here, but I’ve run across several perl links that are worth passing along:

1 - Advanced usage of CPAN, including determining dependencies, updating all the modules on the system, and a simpler way to replicate modules across systems

2 - Excerpts from the new Perl Cookbook, which talks about DBD::SQLite, a DBD module that lets you do SQL databases without a SQL server (sort of an embedded SQL database)

3 - More from the new Perl cookbook, interesting things on “pretending a string is a file”, and regex shortcuts for balanced operators (ie {}, [], (), etc)

4 5 6 - Three articles on design patterns in Perl, sort of a warm up to the author’s upcoming book.


I’m trying something new here. Talk to me on Twitter with the button above, please.
