Perl Weekly #657 - Perl Toolchain Summit in 2024

Hi There!

As the newsletter goes out to more than 4,000 people I often get back vacation notifications. Most of them are in English, but there are a few that are in some other language. I assume the local language of where that person works. A few of them are both in English and in the local language. Usually a language that I don't fully understand. I can guess and I can use an automated translator, but it seems it would make sense for these messages to include an English version as well.

Apparently we missed the announcement of the Perl Toolchain Summit. In 2024 it will be in Lisbon, Portugal, from Wednesday April 25 to Sunday April 28. They are looking for sponsors.

Enjoy your week!

Announcing the Perl Toolchain Summit in 2024!

A small example by yours truly.

The present isn't evenly distributed either

Personally I think that removing from the standard Perl wasn't a good idea. IT went against the philosophy of backward compability without providing an alternative in the core. On the other hand having (yet another) place that tries to promote newer web-technologies is a good idea.

RECAP - The Weekly Challenge - 257

Enjoy a quick recap of last week's contributions by Team PWC dealing with the "Smaller than Current" and " Reduced Row Echelon" tasks in Perl and Raku. You will find plenty of solutions to keep you busy.

Currently Reduced

As always we got some cool features of map and grep in Raku. Thanks for sharing the knowledge.

Lesser, Inferior, Lower, Junior

Use of map and grep together can be lethal and produce compact solution. Keep it up great work.

Use of PDL always amazed me. Well done and keep it up.

I noticed the use of Inf in Raku. Checkout the details if you are Raku fan.

Raku is very good at creating one-liner for search and lookup job. You would be surprise to see the result. Well done.
