The next Eastside-SPUG meeting will be tomorrow, Wednesday,
at our usual Avaya location. See below for directions. Also
the meeting will be in the cafeteria the entrance to which 
is behind the building. So find and use the back entrance.


    * TECH Q&A

    First we'll have a Tech Q&A where people can ask 
    questions about Perl. Questions from all levels are 
    welcome. Hopefully this will make the group more useful
    to both beginner Perl programmers as well as to 
    advanced ones.

    * Some Tools For Writing Large Perl Programs

    I will demo some Perl tools that I have created whose
    purpose is to make it easier to write large Perl 

    * Perl Module Browser. This is a simple IDE for Perl 
      which hooks into the tags support that both Emacs and
      Vi have. Allows you to have a "package" or a "sub" 
      view of your code. 

    * Strict Structs and Methods. A simple scheme for 
      avoiding errors object field names and in object 
      method arguments. For example, if you declare a 
      method with 2 arguments and pass it 3, this will 
      tell you that. Also, the run-time cost is zero 
     (unlike some other solutions to this problem on CPAN).
