ANNOUNCE: Perl Seminar NY December 18 Meeting
- Perl Seminar NY will have its December meeting next Tuesday, Dec. 18, from
6:15-8:15 pm at the NYPC Users Group office suite, 481 8th Avenue (btw 34 &
35 Sts), Suite 1560. Here's our agenda:
1. Preparing a Module for CPAN
Perl Seminar NY member Alan Dickey is preparing to install a module he's
written on CPAN, the worldwide Comprehensive Perl Archive Network. He'll
give you pointers on:
The basics of preparing a module for CPAN upload.
The requirements for making your moduled installable by CPAN.pm.
How to create makefile.pl, tests, README, etc.
ppm for activestate on win32
2. DataPresenter: The Saga Continues
Inspired by the November Perl Seminar meeting, Glenn Maciag went home and
hacked up a 9-line method that's a significant new addition to that module's
capabilities. It enables selection of rows for output by subroutines and
regexes (and even regexps). He'll discuss this at our December meeting.
Then, Jim Keenan will tell the tale of how his code got torn up by
Philadelphia Perl master Mark-Jason Dominus -- and how in the process MJD
discovered (deep breath) A BUG IN PERL.
Don't miss the next action-packed episode of Perl Seminar NY: Tuesday, Dec
18. Add your own 2 cents to the action by volunteering to present at our
Winter 2002 sessions coming up!
