Perl Weekly #667 - Call for papers and sponsors for LPW 2024

Originally published at Perl Weekly 667

Hi there!

Last week Mohammed already mentioned the LPW, now they have a Call For Papers and Sponsors. I am glad they write on bpo, but I also wonder, do they publish the CFP on other web sites as well. e.g.

I don't have a lot of time dealing with Perl these days, but I looked at the recent report of CPAN Digger and I see there are still quite a few CPAN packages that do not link to their public Version Control System (VCS). If you have some spare time maybe you could check out the modules in the VCS column and ask the author to add the appropriate fields so it will be easier for others to find the git repository.

Today is the Holocaust memorial day in Israel. I assume most of the readers of the Perl Weekly know what it is about, but I am surprised how many people in the world have never heard the word or don't know what it is about. I spend the day partially by watching interviews and lectures. I listed some of them on my site: Holocaust memorial day in Israel in 2024.

I also wrote an article titled Rafah and the humanitarian aid for Gaza. If you'd like to read more about the topic from me, you can register to my newsletter.

Unfortunately I need to deal with this quite a lot instead of sending Pull-Requests.

You, enjoy your week!

Your editor: Gabor Szabo.

Generate Fixtures for DBD::Mock::Session

Carp::Object, an object-oriented replacement for Carp and Carp::Clan

The new Carp::Object module is an object-oriented replacement for Carp or Carp::Clan. What is the point? Well, there are some motivations.

Upgrading the OS and Perl can go terribly, but one has to do it anyway and it is probably better to do it frequently than rarely.

Benchmark::DKbench Perl benchmark suite now supports custom benchmarks.

PTS 2024: Lisbon
