Perl / Unix One-liner Cage Match, Part 2

In Part 1, I compared Perl’s regexp features with sed and Awk. In this concluding part, I’ll cover examples that make use of Perl’s extensive built-in features and third-party modules.

Bigger library

Perl has a much bigger collection of built-in functions compared to Awk. For command-line usage, I often need tr, join, map and grep. I like that arrays and hashes are distinct in Perl and applying sort on these data types is much simpler compared to Awk.

Append items to a list

This problem wants to append columns to rows that have too few, like the b, c and d rows:

a,10,12,13
b,20,22
c,30
d,33

Perl / Unix One-liner Cage Match, Part 1


A shell (like Bash) provides built-in commands and scripting features to easily solve and automate various tasks. External commands like grep, sed, Awk, sort, find, or parallel can be combined to work with each other. Sometimes you can use Perl either as a single replacement or a complement to them for specific use cases.

Perl is the most robust portable option for text processing needs. Perl has a feature rich regular expression engine, built-in functions, an extensive ecosystem, and is quite portable. However, Perl may have slower performance compared to specialized tools and can be more verb…

Downloading and Installing Perl in 2021

[This article is part of our Popular articles project to update Perl.com for contemporary practices]

If you’re reading this article, you’re likely looking for a simple way to download and install the Perl programming language. Or you already have Perl installed as part of your operating system, but it’s older than the currently-supported versions (5.32.1 or 5.30.3) and you’d like to use the latest and greatest features. The download options may seem daunting, especially if you’re new to computers or programming. We’ll take things step by step, and soon you’ll be on your way to…

Interview: Trying to Catch Paul "LeoNerd" Evans

Paul “LeoNerd” Evans is a CPAN author, blogger, and core Perl contributor. He introduced the experimental isa operator in Perl 5.32 and the try/catch syntax in an upcoming version.

Tell me a little about yourself and your background; whatever you feel comfortable sharing.

Lets see—I’m going to do this in reverse chronological order.

Currently I’m a self-employed contractor, splitting my time between Perl and other computery things, and electronics. Most of the jobs I’ve had before I did that were based on Perl, with the minor exception of a little Internet startup company called &ldqu…

Why I wrote Net::Google::CivicInformation

Before I became a computer programmer, I tried my hand at being a human programmer, in the form of a wordsmith, as I called myself then. I had various jobs as a writer, editor, translator and journalist, but I met with little success, for two main reasons. In those days you needed a publisher to find your work interesting enough to publish before anyone could read it, and that was a pretty high bar. And in the second place, it was difficult to get the humans to react to the content I wrote (I’m still exercised that the movie reviewer would get more letters to the editor than I did after…

The Hijacking of Perl.com

For a week we lost control of the Perl.com domain. Now that the incident has died down, we can explain some of what happened and how we handled it. This incident only affected the domain ownership of Perl.com and there was no other compromise of community resources. This website was still there, but DNS was handing out different IP numbers.

First, this wasn’t an issue of not renewing the domain. That would have been a better situation for us because there’s a grace period.

Second, to be very clear, I’m just an editor for the website that uses the Perl.com domain. This means that I’m…

TWC 147: Prime without Left, and Pent without Quad

In which we bravely overcome ambiguity, and dodge two approaches in the face of (O³).

TWC Task #1, Truncatable Prime Observations:

"Left-truncatable prime" is not fully defined by the task; are leading zeros valid?
e.g. 103 -> 03 -> 3 ; all are prime, but is 03 considered a "number"?

UPDATE: SF.pm's Raku Study Group just pointed out that task description does say "contains no 0", so the task was fully defined, and I had no need for the "filter" half of the solutions below. Mea culpa!

OEIS has separate pages for each definition, but both start with:
(2, 3, 5, 7, 13, 17, 23, 37, 43, 47):

Do-It-Yourself warnings categories

One of the reasons I have not "moved on" from Perl to some other more "modern" language is that Perl gives me such great access to its inner workings. The Do-It-Yourself Lexical Pragmas post from a couple weeks ago is an example of this. Another example is that Perl lets you tie your own code into its warnings system.

Tying into the warnings machinery requires a module. That is, the interface assumes you are reporting problems relative to another name space that invoked your code. Your module can either add diagnostics to existing Perl warning categories or actually create new categories. In ei…

Perl Weekly Challenge 147: Truncatable Primes and Pentagon Numbers

These are some answers to the Week 147 of the Perl Weekly Challenge organized by Mohammad S. Anwar.

Spoiler Alert: This weekly challenge deadline is due in a few days from now (on January 16, 2022 at 24:00). This blog post offers some solutions to this challenge, please don’t read on if you intend to complete the challenge on your own.

Task 1: Truncatable Prime

Write a script to generate first 20 left-truncatable prime numbers in base 10.

In number theory, a left-truncatable prime is a prime number which, in a given base, contains no 0, and if the leading left digit is successively removed, then a…

Task 2: Curious Fraction Tree - Solutions in Raku and Perl (with 200+ tests), and another Perl solution using a CPAN module.

My Perl program is a 3-line version of this one-liner:

Perl Hacks

Replacing CPAN RT

[Update: the CPAN Request Tracker was saved. It’s now run by a new team of volunteers and none of my suggestions below are required.]

Two weeks ago, we learned that the CPAN Request Tracker was closing down early next year. I proposed a plan that CPAN authors could follow to ensure that their users can still find somewhere to report bugs in modules (and, perhaps more importantly, to see what bugs have already been reported in modules).

But that’s only part of the problem. In fact, it’s probably a minor part of the problem. If you’re an active CPAN author, then you probably already knew about the…

RT – Action Plan for CPAN Authors

CPAN RT is going away. CPAN authors have until the beginning of March to extract any useful information from it.

RT is the “Request Tracker”, a bug tracking system that is written by Best Practical. For almost as long as I can remember, anyone who uploads a module to CPAN gets a free ticket queue for their module at rt.cpan.org. MetaCPAN assumes that’s where people should report bugs in your module and helpfully adds an “issues” link that goes to the appropriate page in RT.

But now that system is going away. It will be switched off on the 1st March 2021. The Perl NOC team is spread pretty thinly…

Down the rabbit hole

Blog posts are like busses. You wait months for one and then two come along on consecutive days!

Yesterday I wrote about how we didn’t need a blogging platform for the Perl community – all we really needed was a good-looking feed aggregator. I mentioned Perlsphere as one such aggregator.

Then Matthew commented, saying that Perlsphere looked a bit broken as Dave Cantrell’s posts from a few years ago frequently pop up there as new posts. I had a quick look at the problem and couldn’t quite work out what was going on. His web feed seems valid, but Perlsphere didn’t seem to recognise the dates of th…

Blogging for Perl

I think it was at YAPC Copenhagen in 2008 that a small group of us first discussed the idea of building a shared blogging platform for the Perl community. It was over a year later that we launched blogs.perl.org.

I remember a lot of discussions over that time where we tried to thrash out exactly what we wanted to build. I know that one of my main drivers was that I wanted to replace the journals feature of use.perl. For those of you too young to remember, use.perl was a Perl community web site from the dawn of time. The site ran Perl news on its front page, but users could also have their own j…

The Best of Perl Hacks

What do you do when you’re stuck inside because Coronavirus means that your country is in lockdown? Well, you write a book, of course. Or, to be more accurate, you cobble together fifty or so old blog posts into a book.

So that’s what I’ve done. Now you can read some of your favourite Perl Hacks blog posts in a handy Kindle book. Other ebook marketplaces are, of course, available – but I haven’t had the time to make a version that’s available from anywhere else yet. That might follow if enough people ask for it.

PerlCon Europe 2019

Last week I was in Riga for this year’s European PerlCon (the conference formerly known as YAPC::Europe). As has become traditional, here’s my report of the conference.

My conference began on Tuesday night at the pre-conference meet-up. Most people get into town on the night before the conference starts and the organisers always designate a local bar as a meeting place. This time, as the conference was being held in a hotel, the meeting place was a room in the hotel just outside the main conference room. It’s always good to meet up with friends who you might not have seen since the previous con…

#547 - Learning a human language vs. a programming language

Hi,

Learning a programming language is not easy, but have you tried learning a human language? You don't have a compiler to tell you when you make a syntax error. You have a lot more words and rules and a lot more exceptions than in a programming language. Mostly however, the lack of quick feedback is what makes it hard. However, after a few months work you start to be able to speak to people in their native language.

As you might have read I've started to learn Ladino - the language spoken by the Jews who were expelled from the Iberian peninsula more than 500 years ago. It is a mix of medieval…

Hi there

Welcome to my first edition of 2022 and 95th edition overall.

I remember there was a time when the O'Reilly group published many Perl books. Then came a few other publishing houses like Manning publications. I am sure you must have owned a handful of Perl books from these publishers. In recent times not many Perl books have been written, except one or two by brian d foy. A friend of mine donated all his Perl books to a local library as he is moving to Python. It is a sad state to be honest. Recently, I came across a Facebook post by a friend of mine about a Perl book called Extending an…

Do you remember which year you first picked up the Perl language?

In the 540th edition of the weekly newsletter, I mentioned Advent Calendars. I noticed some activity in the GitHub repository for the Perl Advent Calendar and was hoping to see another exciting edition full of Perl projects. A friend of mine on Facebook mentioned that this year the Perl Advent Calendar is looking a bit sparse. At the time of writing this editorial, I have only seen one post i.e. Day 1 of Year 2021.

Advent of Code Day 15 to 24, with some gaps

A few more days of Advent of Code...

Day 15 - Chiton

Another path finder, this time with different costs for different paths. This screams for Dijkstra, but for part 1 I still did a more stupid brute force solution using code similar to Day 12 (but using a stack instead of recursion).

For part two my brute force solution was too slow, so I actually had to understand / implement Dijkstra, which took a bit of time, the Wikipedia article and this nice page. It was still rather slow, because I used a plain Perl sort to sort the todo list. Then I thought that I could just group the nodes by cost, thin…

Advent of Code Day 9 to 14

Five more days of coding adventures!

Day 9 - Smoke Basin

We need to find "low points" in a two-dimensional map of integers ranging from 0 to 9.

For part 1 I used a hash to store the map (with keys like "3_2" for row 3/col 2), and looked in the 4 bordering fields to find lower values (adjusting for corners/borders), I use the classic method (learned in previous years) of looping through a list of offsets to look for the neighbouring values:

for my $move ([-1,0],[1,0],[0,-1],[0,1]) {
     my $look = ($r + $move->[0] ).':'.($c + $move->[1]);
     my $val = $map{ $look };
     ...
 }

If the value…

Advent of Code Day 6, 7 and 8

Day 6 - Lanternfish

Did the first part via an Array, because I was expecting some GoL stuff in Part 2. There wasn't and the Array-based solution would take forever for part 2. So after a bit of thinking (and (for once) not looking at reddit for ideas) I realized that the position of each fish is irrelevant, and we just need to count the fish.

Counting fish is faster than fish-herding them in an array

So part 2 is converted to a hash (where the keys are the generation of the fish, and the value the number of fishes at that generation), and a very simple loop to move the fish around. I had a small…

Advent of Code Day 1 to 5

As you have probably noted by the measurable reduction of programmer productivity worldwide, Advent of Code is running again. Here's a short recap of my experiences from day 1 to day 5.

I usually approach the problems straight-forward (or brute-force), mostly because I'm not that kind of smart to know all the nice shortcuts and algorithms (which I later usually read up on the very recommended "Solution Megathreads" on reddit. You can find me solutions here.

Day 1 - Sonar Sweep

Starting of easy, just adding / comparing some values. I still learned something during the second task: When comparing a…

Merging multiple git repos with their commit history

Advent of Code has started again and I'm again publishing my solutions to github (and probably also here). In the last two years I created on git repo for each year, but this year I changed my mind and want to have on repo containing a dir for each year.

Now I could just copy all the files into the new repo, but that would lose the commit history. Which is unacceptable!

Sicherheit für Perl-Anwendungen: fail2ban

Ist eine Webanwendung öffentlich erreichbar, wird es nicht lange dauern und irgendwelche Bots versuchen sich anzumelden. Oder es werden wild irgendwelche URLs aufgerufen. Auch wenn die Anmeldeversuche wahrscheinlich scheitern, geht die Bot-Aktivität zu Lasten der Webanwendung. Und mit genügend versuchen klappt es vielleicht doch mal, dass sich jemand Unbefugtes anmeldet.

Perl Roles

1. Roles Definition

A role is a set of methods that provide extra behavior to a class. Roles can't be used independently they need a class to consume them. Roles are a good alternative to inheritance.

2. A sample role

A role is declared in a *.pm file.

package Role::JSON;
use Moose::Role;

use JSON 'encode_json';

requires qw( data );

sub to_json {
  my $self = shift;

  return encode_json( $self->data() );
}

1;

3. Consuming a role

In the previous example the Role::JSON requires
the consuming class to have a method named data().

package Foo;
use Moose;
with "Role::JSON";

sub data {
 my $self …

Weekly Challenge 147

Challenge, My solutions

Unless I'm mistaken, this is the first week where both challenges have had no inputs. It is always tempted to use a single print statement, but that defeats the purpose of why we do them, isn't it?

TASK #1 › Truncatable Prime Task

Write a script to generate first 20 left-truncatable prime numbers in base 10.

In number theory, a left-truncatable prime is a prime number which, in a given base, contains no 0, and if the leading left digit is successively removed, then all resulting numbers are primes.

My solution

Let's start off with the straight forwa…

Highlighting members of the Perl family

This past year of blogging has introduced me to a wide variety of people in the Perl community. Some I’ve admired from afar for years due to their published work, and even more I’ve “met” interacting on social media and other forums. So this will be the first in an occasional series highlighting not just the code, but the people that make up the Perl family.

Paul “LeoNerd” Evans

I first came across Paul’s work during his series last year on writing a core Perl feature; he’s responsible for Perl v5.32’s isa operator and v5.34’s experimental try/catch exception handling syntax. I interviewed him…

100 Languages Speedrun: Episode 52: Perl

Perl is a highly influential "kitchen sink" language. Languages like that see an idea that might potentially be useful or just cool, and just add it to the language because why not.

Other languages with similar design philosophy (or one might say lack of design philosophy) are C++ and Scala. And it's not a coincidence that kitchen sink languages place really high on the charts of most hated languages of all times. They can be quite productive to write code in, but reading someone else's code, not so much.

I very much support the "kitchen sink" language design, including new ones like Raku. Among…

Book review "Advanced Perl programming"

Advanced Perl Programming

Advanced Perl Programming is a book from Sriram Srinivasan published in 1997 (ouch!).

It's old, if you're a Perl newcomer, don't read such old books (in addition that this book is not adapted to your level).

There is a second edition of this book but it seems a totally different book (different author). Also the Advanced Perl Programming: From Advanced to Expert from William Bo Rothwell seems a completely different book.

Advanced Perl Programming is old but interesting... but I have to admit that it is not consistent in quality.

I think this book is for "hardcore Perl programmers" 😀

Weekend Outage

You may have noticed that some perl.org services were unavailable this weekend.  Email continued to flow, and no data was lost.

The short version of the story is that we were bitten by this bug. and learned a lot about how Kubernetes works while we figured out what the issue was.

CPAN Mirror List Changes

An Important Update about the CPAN Mirror List

You're receiving this email because you're listed as a contact point for a CPAN mirror. Thank you! The mirror network has been a huge part of CPAN’s success. Soon, the way clients use CPAN mirrors is changing. You don't need to do anything, but after reading this email, you might want to.

Some background: For a long time, when the CPAN client (aka CPAN.pm) started up for the first time, it prompted users to configure it by picking a nearby mirror. The assumption was that it would be b…

perl.com hijacked

 The perl.com domain was hijacked this morning, and is currently pointing to a parking site.  Work is ongoing to attempt to recover it.

 We encourage you NOT to visit the domain, as there are some signals that it may be related to sites that have distributed malware in the past.

  Some users may have it selected as their CPAN mirror.  To update your mirror in CPAN.pm use o conf urllist http://www.cpan.org/

rt.cpan.org will sunset on March 1st, 2021

Update 2/21/2021:

Updated information about the future of rt.cpan.org can be found at https://news.perlfoundation.org/post/rt-cpan-org-future

Update 2020-12-13:

rt.cpan.org will be sunset on March 1st, 2021 due to low and declining use.

Back when we started this service, it filled a need by providing a place for CPAN authors to track bug reports and feature requests. In recent years github.com and other sites have added issue tracking to their git repo hosting and many CPAN authors have migrated to these sites.

If you are a CPAN author, there are several tools to help you migrate existing tickets:

cpan.org email supported by Pobox

Earlier this year we quietly switched the infrastructure that forwards ${author}@cpan.org email addresses from our home-grown solution to Pobox’s Bulk Forwarding system. Our system wasn’t keeping up with the spam-filtering needs of these widely published email addresses.

Pobox is now detecting over 93% of the incoming email to @cpan.org as spam and taking care of it. That’s tens of thousands of spam emails a day that aren’t forwarded on. (Almost 2.5 million emails a month!) Said another way -- less than 7% of emails sent to @cpan.org are valid!

Beyond improved spam filtering, there’s also better…

Perl bugs now on GitHub


For over 17 years, the Perl NOC has hosted an RT instance for Perlbug, the system that tracks and manages Perl bugs and feature requests.  Two weekends ago, it transitioned to GitHub.    Background is available in this thread.
We'd especially like to thank Todd Rinaldo who led the migration and did most of the work.  His attention to detail cannot be understated.  17 years of data (some of which had been migrated to RT from the previous system) required a lot of tweaking and polishing to make it look nice.  His hard work shows in the result.
It's been fun and interesting to support this particular piece…

Perl – *n*x

Quo vadis, Perl?

Crossroads

Foto by Carsten Tolkmit 

We’ve had a week of heated discussion within the Perl 6 community. It is the type of debate where everyone seems to lose. It is not the first time we do this and it certainly won’t be the last. It seems to me that we have one of those about every six months. I decided not to link to many reiterations of the debate in order not to feed the fire.

Before defining sides in the discussion it is important to identify the problems that drives the fears and hopes of the community. I don’t think that the latest round of discussions was about the Perl 6 alias in itself (Raku), but…

So, what about (Perl 6) dependencies?

DependenciesWhen I need to program something, most of the time I use Perl 5, Go or Perl 6. Which one depends on the existence and maturity of libraries and the deployment strategy (and I must admit, probably my mood). Most applications I write at work are not that big, but they need to be stable and secure. Some end up in production as an extension or addition to the software that is the core of our authentication and authorisation infrastructure. Some programs are managed by other teams, e.g. of sysadmin-type applications like the monitoring of a complex chain of microservices. Finally, proof of concept…

rakudo-pkg: Create OS packages for Rakudo Perl 6 using Docker

camelia-logo

There was an interesting discussion on #perl6 (irc.freenode.net) about the use of rakudobrew as a way for end-users to install Rakudo Perl 6 (see how-to-get-rakudo).

rakudobrew, inspired by perlbrew, is a way to manage (and compile) different versions of rakudo. nine argued that it’s primarily meant as a tool for rakudo developers. Because of the increased complexity (e.g. when dealing with modules) it’s not targeted at end-users. While being a big fan of rakudobrew, I agree with nine.

The problem is that there are no Linux binaries on the download page (there are for MacOS and Windows), so user…

Vim as a Perl 6 editor

EDITED on 20170211: syntastic-perl6 configuration changes

If you’re a Vim user you probably use it for almost everything. Out of the box, Perl 6 support is rather limited. That’s why many people use editors like Atom for Perl 6 code.

What if with a few plugins you could configure vim to be a great Perl 6 editor? I made the following notes while configuring Vim on my main machine running Ubuntu 16.04.

Please test: first release of syntastic-perl6, a vim syntax checker

Vimlogo.svgI think that Perl 6, as a fairly new language, needs good tooling not only to attract new programmers but also to make the job of Perl 6 programmers more enjoyable.

Syntastic-perl6 is a plugin that adds Perl 6 syntax checking in Vim using Syntastic. Syntastic is the leading Vim plugin for syntax checking. It supports many programming languages.

If the plugin proves to be useful, I plan on a parallel track for Perl 6 support in Vim. On one hand, this plugin will track th…

Multiple Remote Contracting Roles, Wherever you live (All Around the World)

With companies re-emerging from the pandemic, we have several projects we need developers for. All work is remote.

* A large client needs strong Perl developers across multiple teams. The work is diverse. Some teams need developers to modernize legacy code while others are writing new code for microservices, routing, and security tools. It’s hard to say exactly what Perl skills are needed as the technologies vary from project to project, but working knowledge of DBI and Mason are often useful.

Do you speak two languages? Remote UK Perl role, UK remote (Perl Jobs by Perl Careers)

While our client has an ultra-modern Perl stack that was recently rewritten, they are gradually moving in the direction of Node.js. They have a role open for a senior developer to work with their existing Perl codebase, but if you happen to have a passing fluency in a second language like Node.js, you’d be a tr__è__s bon addition to their team.
