June 2016 Archives

Chad Granum just completed his first Test2 grant, and took some time for rest and payment bureaucracy before starting his second grant, now documenting Test 2.

This is the first report for this new grant. During the last weeks he worked in an initial Test2 tutorial, that was incorporated into his YAPC presentation available at https://test-more.github.io/Test2-Manual/#tutorial. Accordingly with his report, this is just the beginning on how to write tests. Soon he will also start the sections for Test Tool authors.

Tony has supplied the second report for his Maintaining Perl 5 grant, which was recently successfully extended.

I spent last month mainly getting Scope::Upper working on 5.24.0. It broke heavily after the context stack reworking that came with 5.23.8, due to its heavy reliance on the internal details of perl's context stack and scope exit behaviours.

I don't intend in general spending so much time again on fixing up such CPAN modules; it's just that once I had started, I wanted to see it through to completion.

Will Braswell continues his unrestricted production of R(estricted)-Perl documentation:

"May was yet another busy month for Learning RPerl, section 2.3.6 was huge so I split out all the command-line arguments into a new appendix B.

We now have documentation for all of RPerl's 15 phases of operation, 27 command-line arguments, and approximately 200 RPerl-specific error messages, with even more coming soon!

All of the following sections have now been published in whole or in part:
