[VPM] Victoria Perl Mongers meeting tomorrow
Peter at PSDT.com
Mon Jan 17 05:57:00 PST 2005
Victoria.pm will meet at its regular date and time, and a less common
place, tomorrow, Tuesday, January 18, 7pm, at UVic. The location is
David F. Strong Building C113. See http://uvic.ca for maps if necessary.
At the first Victoria Perl Mongers meeting of 2005 we shall extend the
holiday spirit a bit and entertain ourselves with an exploration of
Damian Conway's SelfGOL. See
http://libarynth.f0.am/cgi-bin/twiki/view/Libarynth/SelfGOL for source.
Yes, it's obfuscated (duh). But that doesn't mean that this will be
(entirely) an exercise in unrolling useless obfuscation
techniques. We'll discover quite a few useful and interesting features
of Perl along the way, useful and understandable to beginners and
experts. In fact, Conway bases an entire seminar on this topic
(http://damian.conway.org/Seminars/Extreme.html). We don't have as
long as he usually takes, so we may not finish. But we'll have fun
nonetheless. If you have a copy of the Camel or a laptop with Perl
installed, bring it along.
This will be a freewheeling exploration of numerous features of Perl
and the chance for everyone to ask questions and find out something new.
Other topics to be covered as time permits; make requests for anything
