Perl

Started with Moose

Since my early Perl days decades ago, wow, it's really more than a decade ago, probably two, since I started programming with Perl, I thought about OO style.

OK, frankly not in the first years, because the scripts were small and mastering the language the main challenge. But with time passing by the projects grew and the need for nice interfaces, clean and maintainable code grew as well.

Started using Dist::Zilla

Since I haven't started a new Perl project for a while and especially none where I wanted to use CI, I was using ExtUtils::MakeMaker.

However the options of downloading dependencies are very limited and from Java I was used to such a nice build tool like Gradle. Unfortunately the Gradle support for Perl is very limited... at best.

New release of Zero RRD Framwork

The new release of the Zero RRD Framework is out. You can either update via SVN or download the tar.gz of version 0.9.2.1.

We mainly fixed some installation annoyances and hopa updated the VMware and VirtualBox images. Furthermore we improved the date selection of the start and end date which accepts either rrdtool compatible of human readable dates now. Even a nice looking JS calendar for date selection is available.

HTTP::DAV for WebDAV handling in Perl

I'm currently working on a project where I create a dump file from a data structure using Storable to do the actual dump. This file needs to be exchanged afterwards.

I already thought about an email attachment or uploading the file via FTP, but then I remembered the WebDAV enabled server at my fingertips. Yes, that's the sort of challenge I want to face.

Special character for IMAP folder on Exchange

As I've already written in a previous post, it's quite simple to connect from a Perl to Exchange (in german). Unfortunately you get into trouble if you have some special character in the folder names, e.g. german umlaute. Luckily Holger found a solution for this special character in IMAP folder problem.

Zerod appliance

A couple of days ago Holger released a zerod appliance for Virtualbox and VMWare which you can download easily.

After downloading and unpacking you find a helpful readme file explaining how to run the appliance. The zerod and zero-agent are already installed and preconfigured, so that you can start looking at it straight away.

Using Term::Prompt for terminal output from Perl

For a script I made recently to manage contacts to my LDAP server on the command line, I needed a package to easily output a prompt to the terminal.

The requirement is to be able to output things very easily and giving a default value that will be returned. After checking out some packages at CPAN, I decided to go for Term::Prompt. It offer a very convenient interface, basic checks for the returned value and works as I like it to.
