    Finally, after way too long, the slides and sample code are up! They're in github. There's even a video - thanks to SF.pm. Links are all at: https://archive.org/details/louerickson-crossplatformperl

    Bumped into an article on Path::Tiny by the author: http://www.dagolden.com/index.php/1838/goodbye-path-class-hello-path-tiny/

    It's a smaller, faster, self-contained response to Path::Class.

    Those are all fine things, but is a '90% solution' a better answer when your goal is to develop the right reflexes to write truly "cross platform" code?

      I took a quick glance at it. It's missing a bunch of the useful things I use Path::Class for. I don't see a big win from it, but it might suit others very well. Considering Unixish and Windowsish behavior will cover most platforms in regular use today, I don't think it's a bad choice, if you prefer it.

    I thought it was excellent. Lou had great examples of how to make the same piece of code to work on Windows, Unix and Mac.

    It would be great if you could talk about - issues with installing CPAN modules on Mac, Linux, and Windows too. Coding for file paths on the same set of platforms - such as log files, config files, etc. Thanks!

      File paths is a core part of cross platform work, and I'll talk in detail and have demos. I'll add something about module installation.

    Windows tcl support vs Linux Tcl support - Are there any stable libraries that make the transition seamless?

    • Lou E.

      I have done a little looking into this, and will talk about it. I have a GUI demo, at the very least.

    Maybe a mention of things you've encountered where it was impossible or demonstrably ill-advised to use Perl. "Cautionary Tales" as it were...

    March 26, 2014

    • Lou E.

      I'll see what I can think of. I've used Perl for some pretty far-ranging things, so that's a hard question... :)

    I'm assembling the slides. Is there anything specific anyone wants to hear about?
