Re: Default library paths

2001-06-16 Thread Matthew Robinson


Had a brain wave this evening and came up with the following solution.

Replace /usr/lib/perl5 with /usr/local/.p5 in the perl binary[1].  Then
create a symlink from /usr/local/.p5 to /usr/local/lib/perl5.  The .p5
directory doesn't display in /usr/local so everything looks neat and tidy.

I am then left with the whole perl installation entirely contained in
/usr/local which means I can remove the Compact Flash card (containing perl)
without leaving any loose ends lying around in the main filesystem of my
iPAQ.

The next challenge will be getting gcc onto the iPAQ so that I can then
rebuild perl from scratch :)

Default library paths

2001-06-10 Thread Matthew Robinson

Apologies in advance if I have missed something blindingly obvious :)

I need to change the default library paths in a compiled copy of perl.
Basically, I want to move /usr/lib/perl5 into /usr/local/lib/perl5.  I am
unable to recompile perl as it is compiled for arm-linux and I don't have
either the cross-compiler or the correct configuration to get perl to build
for this architecture.

Currently, I am using a soft link from my /usr/lib to /usr/local/lib.
However, I would prefer to keep the whole installation on /usr/local as this
is mounted from a removable disk and I would prefer not to have dangling
links when the device is removed.

Any suggestions, or am I stuck with the link in /usr/lib.

I suppose I could use PERL5LIB but I would still prefer the entirely self

Having just had a look at E::V it looks like the module is using the

RFC822 will allow all of the following (taken from CGI Programming with
Perl) and was designed to accept all the addresses in use in 1982:

Alfred Neuman Neuman@BBN-TENEXA
:sysmail@ Some-Group. Some-Org
Muhammed.(I am the greatest) Ali @(the)vegas.WBA

I have checked the following code against the original test cases which
originally returned as valid and none of the list are considered valid.

Well, with a module like Date::MMDDYY the implementation
_is_ broken - it uses gmtime() instead of localtime() for
example;

but worse than that, the design and conception are flawed.
Any drop-in replacement would inevitably suffer from the
same flaws of conception and interface.

There's no reason at all for anybody to use this module.
Compare:

  use Date::MMDDYY 'datecon';
  print "The date is ", datecon(time()), "\n";

to

  use POSIX 'strftime';
  print "The date is ", strftime("%m-%d-%y", localtime()), "\n";


The module is redundant, not just poorly implemented.

Could we not produce something like configure.bat which is a hybrid shell
script/batch file that starts the configuration process by finding perl and
then launches perl to find out installed libraries.

Obviously it would produce lots of 'Command not found' messages etc but it
could quickly find perl (or not) and then move into a cleaner environment.

Ooh... You don't even have to assume working perl on their box. You
stick the interrogation stuff on the 'Not Matt's scripts' website. The
punter then says "I want to run these scripts on such an ISP". NMS
then checks to see if it has information about that ISP cached, and
provides the appropriate scripts if so, or a copy of configure.cgi for
the punter to upload. Once the punter has done the upload, he sets off
an interrogation phase, which works out the capabilities of the
particular user's environment and builds an appropriate script set.

Hmm... it's just a simple matter of programming...

No, most people using these scripts don't have command line access to the
servers that they need to install the scripts on. We'd have to do something
like:

go to http://www.yoursite.com/cgi-bin/randtext2.pl?mode=configure

and then have configure itself online.

Good point!  The script would already have to have the correct shebang in
order for this to work.  Also, we can't necessarily assume that the script
would have write access to the disk (or itself) when it is run through the
web server.

I have no ability to handle dates (ok, we can also include names,

hence always have a problem when the meeting occurs on the first of

when this happens, so my logic was ...

   if (meeting date = 1st of mth) {
   meet on 8th
   } else {
   meet on 1st thursday of mth
   }

someone simplified this to ...

   meetings are held on the day after the first wednesday of
   the month

i then partitioned for this change, but dave held valiantly against
myself and the other usual suspects (JS,DC,) - i was also at
some stage called `the heretic'

philip newton even gimped something up about this

however i then ``refused'' to recognise the real meetings if they
occured on the 1st, even though i may attend them

so it was decided whenever the meeting _should_ of been held on
the 8th we would have an additional meeting, named ``the heretics
meeting'', we had our first last month at the very fine anchor pub

last month we had a meal that was ok, but a bit pricey, however in
the anchor we found a nice open fire that was roaring away hapilly

and coupled with some really quite good beer we sat by the fire
talking and joking as usual

a good time was had by all by the fire, and so heretics meetings
from now on are going to be the same sort of cozy fireside chats

there will only be another 2 this year - this year has been a

Sorry, been busy all morning.  We can supply either a screen or a white
wall, not sure which yet but we will supply one or the other.  So if
somebody else can supply the projector that would be good.

  What kit are we going to need for this? (projector, etc.).
 
 I assume we'll need the usual. Projecter, Screen (or white wall!),
 net connectivity. Can someone at Torrington please confirm which of
 that list they can supply. Thanks.

Thanks Matt. I guess we'll impose on Neil for his projector again, if 
that's ok :)

How many people can we get in the room at Torrington? I guess we'll
be expecting ~30. Maybe a bit more.

30 people should be no problem, over 40 and it will probably start getting
a little personal.


And will there be net connectivity in the room? We can probably 
get by without, but it would be nice to have.

We have a 2meg line and we can make sure that there are a few ports patched
through from the boardroom.  We are also running DHCP so people can get an
IP if required.
