Misc Podcasting notes

2011-08

Scalar Util Type stuff

0 has a length of 0 because it's interpreted in perl as a string, instead of as a number.

Reporting back as a function when you overide the function... don't try to examine it... when dealing with perl.

$a = "A"
++$a; # $a = "B"

perl6 has a more defined behaviour, and supports --$a, unlike perl 5.

perldoc Scala::Util does a looks_like_number EXPR to see if it looks like a number...

use Devel:Peek
Dump $z;

Birdhouse ;

A simple mojolicious based command line chat client + server. ===

birdhouse ; https://github.com/bduggan/birdhouse/

README
bird
house

pm/birdhouse/
./house daeomn --http://localhost:3001 --websocket 3600

Using just mojo

make a websocket to /door ; on messages, send $tx $hello

on somebody get hash of birds

web socket transaction

on finish when they delete.

wall sends to everyone...

Mojolicious::Lite

very straight forward , neat...

all comunication happening over http... (wbesocket).

(evil)

javascript client... tcp client...

  1. Cool.

on finish, try to recorrect every two seconds...

on message recieved

http is stateless - websockets is a persistant http connection. (Tcp over http.)

  1. Websocket wikipedia ; cool.

TIMOW to build a websocket server in perl / pentadactyl

Search Engines, Podcasting, etc.

Mojo ( http://cpanratings.perl.org/dist/Mojolicious ).

Brock's coro code was used in a game (rip off of a popular robot game on the android).

Brock created a new freeshell.org account...

Template::Semantic (and other modules discussed).

subset of the css be the template...

aka Dom::Template "done right" ~ brock

      1. What I did on mine -- great words...

sdlperl.org
simple direct media layer

c,cpp, & other apps.

2 dimenstional games, cross platforms.

Will use open gl as a backend.

games seem to be #1. Drawing, video, audio.

vlc - one of the back ends is SDL. (Because it works everywhere...)

SDL bindings have snagated. However, they stagnated, and didn't follow the upstream sdl directly. ...

Recently, a new small push for sdl bindings.

makes the documentation easier ot use /

SDLX for perlish apis on top of SDL.

Trick - download codmpletely off of githb.

Then Alien SDL.

(Go out and fetch underlying for building external library and build it so it works.)

Build it from scratch from source. :-/

Then, seperately SDL_perl
then switch branches to redesign branch (OR JUST WAIT A FEW MONTHS)...

shooter.pl - frozen bubble to work. minor glitches.

Integrate Coro.

sdl_coro_repl

make_box(rand int rand 604 int rand 400) for 1..100

very cool demo, all in perl, in urser space.

Coro - copperative threads for perl, not pre-emptive...

AnyEvent

ev vs event - ev is much faster for Coro::EV backend.
EV/Any

    1. Subject to change. Alpha code.
      1. (Magic, but good magic..)

Coro
ev
anyevent
EV

Can't locate SDL::Coro::Repl...

use lib "some/blah/path/lib/lib";

use lib 'lib'; # current directory reference.

Vimerator - front end to Java....

www.tux.org/~gkwms/ # Jerry's web page.

Collison::2d

Public service announcement...
Scala::Util , weaken

perl uses reference counting, because it works.

until you have

my $a;

$a = ['x',x1024 * 160, \$a];
weaken $a ->[1];

#!/usr/bin/perl -w
use strict;
use WWW::Mechanize;
use DateTime;
my $agent = WWW::Mechanize->new( autocheck => 1,);

$agent->get('http://dc.pm.org/Status');
$agent->follow_link( text => 'Edit this page' );
my $text = $agent->field('text');

my $now = DateTime->now->ymd;
my $status = "$ENV{USER} ($now) @ARGV";

$text = $status . "\n\n" . $text;

$agent->field('text', $text);
$agent->click('Save');

print "Content:\n" . $agent->content;

Notes from zaz:

1. Determine what you want to do
2. Use WWW::Mechanize::Shell as a command line tool for doing what you need.
3. Eg. Shell> get http://cpan.org
4. script out.pl

If you type "script out.pl" on the command shell, it will generate a script based upon what you did in WWW::Mechanize::Shell.

Then, edit that script as necessary.

Firebug (firefox plugin) ++ for examining html on web pages.

See also WWW::HtmlUnit, which is Brock's www library that supports javascript (which www-mechanize does not.)

Another alternative is lwp-simple, but that doesn't have form parsing / other features.

We discussed diagnostics via a web browser with the following modules (presented by Brock):

When set up, you can modify variables along the way.

Carp::REPL can catch dies

WWW::HtmlUnit

Brief impromptu discussion about how to use HTML::Template for dynamic pull-down menus with saved state. (presented by Gary)
