More Perl::Lint Progress
Fri, 12-Sep-2014 by
It's a while since I "reported":http://news.perlfoundation.org/2014/07/perllint-progress.html on "Taiki Kawakami's grant to work on Perl::Lint":http://news.perlfoundation.org/2014/03/grant-proposal-perllint---yet.html, a static analyser for Perl 5.
Taiki continues to work on Perl::Lint actively: you can track his progress in "the project's public Github repository":https://github.com/moznion/Perl-Lint. Recently he has implemented more policy checks and added filters to exclude policies.
The impressive "Perl::Lint playground":http://perl-lint.moznion.net/ lets you experiment with the module from within your Web browser and the "preview release on CPAN":http://moznion.hatenadiary.com/entry/2014/08/12/233129 makes it easy to install an experimental version of the module on your own machine. Also, Taiki has shared the "slides from his talk about Perl::Lint":http://moznion.hatenadiary.com/entry/2014/08/29/154942 at YAPC::Asia recently.
Please play in the playground or install the module yourself and let us know what you think.
For a laugh, I pushed the source for Symbol::Approx::Sub through your online playground. And it found a bug that has been there probably forever.
Thanks for this.
Great job! Already following it on github :D
Just one thing: I tried to show the playground to a friend today, but it looks like http://perl-lint.moznion.net/ is giving a 504 bad gateway error at the moment :(
