Mice

I use this public list to track what Perl-related tasks (mice) i want to do (eat). If you want to find out which mice are likely up next, click on the “Top” filter. The list is public for these reasons:


  1. I can never decide what to do first, so people voting on this might help.
    Please vote on things you think i should do first! (Can be done anonymously!)
  2. So i can point people who end up going “Well volunteered!” at me to a place where they can write it down.
    Feel free to add new things!
  3. Sometimes people might think some of the stuff i want to do is interesting, and do it themselves.
    Let me know if you want to take a mouse for yourself!


In short: Feel free to volunteer me to eat mice!

  4. http://perldoc.perl.org/perlport.html#Alphabetical-Listing-of-Perl-Functions

    -r, -w, -x are implemented in ways that are flat out broken and cause false positives, this needs to be written up in a way so unix people can understand it, and supplanted with proper test cases, then reported.

  5. What it does is: You point it at a github or fossil repo and it spits out this: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/10190786/simple.html

    Git-Garden currently lives in my github: https://github.com/wchristian/git-garden

    It languished a bit because i needed to wait for patches to Git-PurePerl to get on CPAN. Now i'm still waffling a bit about naming and other API details, i.e. should import/export modules be their own dists, should i use Module::Pluggable, etc.

  6. Ensure it can install and run fine on 5.10, 5.12, 5.14 x AP, SP, Cygwin x WinXP, Win7. Ensure it can do occlusion detection. Let Chris Marshall know of any warts i notice. Fork it onto github.

  9. Right now Web::Simple's dispatch can only handle route signatures passed in as prototypes, which means they're hard-coded and icky. There should be a sane way to API this up to allow the signatures to be passed in as strings. I'll have to look into that.

  10. Write a tool that can run any other tool as a child, and collect its output and use it as a CPAN TESTERS test report.

    ie: cpantester-reporter run cpanm -v Moose

    or even cpantester-reporter -e "perl ./Makefile.PL" -e "make" -e "make test"

    This could then by augmented and bolted on to almost any tool/suite that can install/test perl things, ie:
    Gentoo, where we can permit all users to run test.
    Debian, perhaps they could report test results during packaging.

    etc.

    Separating the test-reporting system from the install toolchain makes this way more useful, just implementing that sucker is the hard…

  11. system { $thing } hides git.cmd needs to switch to normal list on win32, along with some fancy tests.

  17. There's an unfortunate thing that can happen with some List::* packages and thats some of the list-operating functions ( ie: all, any , first ) have a nice little bug where to can not actually pass it a list and be blissfully unaware of this.

    ie:

    return any { foobar( $_ ) }

    A cursory glance suggests "Sure, that works", when in fact, any will iterate over an empty list seeing if foobar($_) returns true for any of them.... guess thats not very good.

    Its a bit hard to solve this problem without LOTS of dark XS magic and even…
