My sig (similar in spirit to Fun With Reserved Keywords):
Here is a related hello world:
perl -le 'exp tr qw s my not vec eq abs do le chop q ge print
lc if sort s qq socket y qx cmp s q qq or rand chop'
sort cos or s qq q and s
m m print chr ord for qw
q hex eval le lt oct q m
and eval xor uc print lc
qq m m and eval qq x not
sin print chr ord for qw
q warn open ref le do qx
xor sleep log print qq q
q if localtime sqrt chop
I tend to bookmark nodes related to theoretical topics like applied discrete math, algorithms, computability & complexity.
And a handful of fallacious uses of theoretical computer science (the hall of shame!):
I also have a soft spot for iterators that generate combinatorial objects:
Techniques/inspiration for writing iterators in general:
Other miscellaneous useful nodes:
Here are some of my highest-ranked nodes:
Code snippets I've posted that might be of general interest (and things I keep having to search for):
I like to ramble about theoretical mumbo-jumbo:
Evolutionary algorithms links:
In a previous life, I was very interested in evolutionary algorithms. Here are some (biased) links, which are by now terribly out-of-date:
Other articles/resources with a decidedly Perl flavor:
What famous people had to say about me:
Silly Perlmonks milestones:
- "The vanity of teaching doth oft tempt a man to forget he is a blockhead."
-- George Savile, first Marquis of Halifax, 1633-1695
- "The great person is ahead of their time, the smart make something out of it, and the blockhead, sets themselves against it."
-- Jean Baudrillard
- "A learned blockhead is a greater blockhead than an ignorant one."
-- Benjamin Franklin
- "No man but a blockhead ever wrote except for money."
-- Samuel Johnson
- The bookful blockhead, ignorantly read
With loads of learned lumber in his head.
-- Alexander Pope
- "The liar at any rate recognizes that recreation, not instruction, is the aim of conversation, and is a far more civilised being than the blockhead who loudly expresses his disbelief in a story which is told simply for the amusement of the company."
-- Oscar Wilde
- "A grave blockhead should always go about with a lively one - they show one another off to the best advantage."
-- William Hazlitt
- "A blockhead cannot come in, nor go away, nor sit, nor rise, nor stand, like a man of sense."
-- Jean de la Bruyere
- "There never was any party, faction, sect, or cabal whatsoever, in which the most ignorant were not the most violent; for a bee is not a busier animal than a blockhead."
-- Alexander Pope
- "Being a blockhead is sometimes the best security against being cheated by a man of wit."
-- François, Duc De La Rochefoucauld
- "When there is sympathy, there needs but one wise man in a company and all are wise,—so, a blockhead makes a blockhead of his companion. Wonderful power to benumb possesses this brother."
-- Ralph Waldo Emerson
