 Subject: [nylug-talk] Perl Seminar NY Tuesday January 16:  Agenda

 Perl Seminar NY meets this Tuesday at 6:15 at NYPC Users Group, 481 8  
 Ave (Ramada New Yorker,  Suite 550-51), at West 34 St.  We have two  
 excellent presentations:

 (1) Mark Sullivan: "use, require, do, and eval"

 "use" is built on "require", which is built on "do", which is built on
 "eval".  So they share a lot in common, but they offer different
 features and different restrictions.  Mark will talk about how  
 they're built,
 where each is appropriate, and how to handle each when it goes wrong.

 (2) Perrin Harkins:  "Low Maintenance Perl"
 Perl is a language flexible enough to let you make your own decisions  
 about how to use it. You can optimize your code for performance, for  
 compactness, or even for entertainment value. But what if you want to  
 optimize it for not getting support calls in the middle of the night  
 about strange behavior on your web site? What if you want to optimize  
 it for spending your Saturday at the movies instead of in the debugger?

 This talk will show you how to choose a dialect of Perl that suits  
 your preferred level of risk. It won't be a simple prescription, but  
 you will learn why avoiding certain constructs can lead to fewer  
 nasty surprises and less difficulty integrating code written by a  
 team. A little planning and a willingness to choose practical  
 solutions over magic can really pay off in reduced debugging time.

 Perl gives you a lot of rope, but it's not too late to learn some new  

 Hope you can attend!
