<japhy> wow. ann arbor MUGGY? I've never heard of such a thing ;)
Monks I met at yapc::NA::2001:
chipmunk - cogent - erudil - japhy - turnstep
mrmick - nate - dominus - da - rrwo - andreychek
You can view a few pictures of (most of) us.
While I was reading a tutorial the other day, the conversation in the chatbox reminded me why I like this place so much. The excerpt (reprinted with kind permission from chipmunk, Stamp_Guy, and OeufMayo) is a great example of how knowledgeable and helpful monks can be:
<Stamp_Guy> Could someone give me a regex that strips off a path name and the extension on a file?
<OeufMayo> Oh, you mean File::Basename?
<chipmunk> Stamp_Guy: s/(.*)/use File::Basename; @parts = fileparse($1); $1/e ;)
<Stamp_Guy> Does that come preinstalled with Perl?
<chipmunk> Stamp_Guy: yes indeedy!
<OeufMayo> yes it does!
Now that's what I like to see-- a monk asks a question, the response to which could have led him in the wrong direction. The correct answer (don't roll your own, use CPAN!) was immediately given, and by more than one monk!
My personal nodelet was getting out of hand, so I put all my favorite nodes here:
- Message Inbox - very useful for managing your private messages
- Embrace the fear? - a funny thought and response
- Code Smarter - japhy points out some common cases where "some ways are better than others"
- Why I like functional programming - tilly explains how he solved a problem with functional programming
- Re: CGI.pm file upload freaking me out - chromatic shows how to do file uploads with CGI.pm
- Re: FAQ Node - footpad lists some "nodes for new monks"
- How do I use Split - a split question spawns a thread with some great examples of converting a date string to a specific format
- varying length multi-dimensional hashes - some interesting methods of populating and traversing a multi-dimensional hash. tye's node in that thread took me a little while to understand.
- amusing redirection - an obfuscated number guessing game
- Better way? - MeowChow and dkubb show two idioms for adding values to a hash
- japhy's Obfuscation Review - japhy explains some of his JAPHs
- assigning to a hash via split - danger and japhy offer some help with slice assignment
- Re: How to remove duplicate key/value pairs in hash of array - dws offers hash inversion as a solution
- Re: sorting mm/dd/yy - I0 gives a map sort map expression as a solution
- chop() and list assignments - converter starts an interesting thread that uncovers a bug in Perl
- Completely Useless - btrott makes it possible to say open FILE, "foo" or die trying;
- Ordered hashes (Re: CRSC) - tye shows several methods of ordering a hash. i like the first one.
- Re: How are arrays and lists different? - dvergin ponders some code from a post by tilly
- R0z3z 4r3 R3d - dws uses l337-speak in a hilarious poem
- RE: permutations? - merlyn tosses out a quick (and almost correct) recursive solution to a question about permutations
- (tye)Re: Sorting multi dimensional arrays - tye shows two methods of sorting a multi-dimensional array. as ever, he presents elegant code that requires more than one look to appreciate.
- mapcar -- map for more than one list - the lisp function made available in your Perl programs, courtesy of tye
- Re: Statistician in my garbage... - merlyn shows some shortcuts for working with HTML::Parser
- Sort on boredom - Ovid posts a question about sorting a list by the frequency of items in it. tilly and petral reply with excellent answers.
- Ovid - Microsoft does the regex dance with two left feet - Ovid exposes some flaws in VB's regex support
- Re (tilly) 1: Why Use Perl? - tilly gives an exhaustive set of reasons as to why Perl is better than C for CGI applications
- CGI Security and the null byte problem
