Alright, I've arrived in Toronto. Now why couldn't you arrange for
the balmy spring weather I got when I visited To. the last week of
March 4 years ago, eh?
Have noted the absence of any discussion re this Thursday's to.pm
meeting. Was speaking with Alan R via that ancient communication
medium, the telephone, and he urged me to post some ideas.
1. I have a talk, "Better Code via Coverage Analysis during
Testing," which I first gave at Pittsburgh Perl Workshop last
October. IIRC, it's supposed to fit into a 45-minute time slot.
2. "Parrot and Rakudo: Getting to 'Hello, World'": If we had
gotten a hackathon session together for Saturday (which we haven't so
far), this was something I was going to toss out. The concept is
simple: Everybody brings in a wireless-equipped laptop, downloads
Parrot, tries to configure, build and test Parrot, and then tries to
build Rakudo: the Perl 6 implementation on Parrot. We see what
obstacles we face in getting to first light and collaborate in
