  • cPanel, Inc.

brian d foy is in town and has agreed to talk at our meeting. To
accommodate his schedule, we're moving the meeting from it's regular
date to October 17th. We will be meeting at our regular location
(cPanel) at our regular time (7pm).

brian will talk about Randal Schwartz's JSON parser regex
(http://www.perlmonks.org/?node_id=995856). This will allow a good
discussion of some of the newer features of Perl's regular
expressions.

As usual we'll meet at the cPanel, Inc. offices at 3131 W. Alabama.
People will gather in the lobby between 6:30pm and 7pm. We'll go up to
the meeting room around 7.

Some of the attendees will be going out for drinks with brian after the
meeting if he feels up for it.

    As always, brian is an knowledgeable and entertaining speaker. Pretty much everyone in the audience learned quite a bit from the talk and the discussion afterwards. For a complete review of the meeting, see the talk page at the Houston.pm website: http://houston.pm.org/talks/201...­

    brian has an update on the meeting this Thursday.

    Perl v5.10 added several features that take (ir)regular expressions to a new level. With grammars and recursion, a single regex can now process things such as HTML and JSON. After going through these features, I'll show how Randal Schwartz used them in his tiny JSON parser (http://www.perlmonks.org/?node_...­). This discussion
    also appears in chapter 2 of Mastering Perl, 2nd Edition, which you can read for free through O'Reilly's Early Release program: http://chimera.labs.oreilly.com...­
