Interview with Autrijus Tang
Don't miss the interview with Autrijus Tang by chromatic in Perl.com. They talk about Pugs, Perl 5/6 internals, his immersion in Haskell, etc. Excellent reading for the breakfast of a sunny Saturday morning.
Some people whose judgement I appreciate speak very well of functional languages. MJD praised the type inference of Haskell when we met in Lisbon a year ago. Also jao and cerquide talk very well about OCaml and friends. Looks like I should take one of them as language to learn of the year.
Writing Perl Modules for CPAN freely available
I readed yesterday in Sam Tregar's journal at use Perl; that Apress has made his Writing Perl Modules for CPAN freely available in PDF from this page. This is the book that encouraged me to have a PAUSE account, I recommend it to anyone that would like to contribute something to CPAN.
