Perl Hacks You Probably Never Knew Existed 


Perl is a powerful language with many secrets. It's no wonder that we 
call the true masters of Perl gurus -- they have studied and discovered 
arcane knowledge and arcana. 

In this talk, Perl Hacks lead author chromatic will show off several 
hacks you probably didn't even know existed. Some are practical. Some 
are disgusting. Every one is worth learning for when you find a problem 
you just can't solve any other way. Even if you've heard of them 
before, he'll show how they work -- so you can create your own 
practical mayhem! 

Potential hacks include: 

Source filtering without source filters 
Using shared libraries without a compiler 
Creating truly private methods 
Reading and writing lexicals without permission 
Controlling the runloop from pure Perl 
Making invocantless methods 
Making multimethods without source filters 

If you have a preference, please feel free to mark the most interesting 
subject -- or suggest one. 

This talk is most suitable for intermediate Perl programmers, though 
there is likely something an experienced Perl programmer doesn't know 
and it should be entertaining for novices as well.
