From PerlNet

Jump to: navigation, search

Except where otherwise indicated, I hereby license my textual contributions to PerlNet to be distributed under the same license as Perl 5 itself.

I'm Paul Fenwick, I live in Melbourne, and help run Perl Training Australia. I occasionally present at Melbourne Perl Mongers, and am the former MPM secretary. In my spare time I enjoy scuba diving and studying wild edible plants.

If you're really bored, you can find more information about me on my personal webpage.

I'm currently collecting a list of IRC channels related to Perl.


Past talks and papers

I give a lot of talks at user groups and conferences. You can find many of the slides and papers at Perl Training Australia's presentations page.

Pages I find useful

These are here because I find them convenient for my own navigation. You may find them useful too.

My TODO List

  • Make sure those business templates contain enough hooks if we need to change the formatting. I believe they do.
  • Read the New Creative Commons Licence and decide whether to upgrade.
  • Configure/create a slimmed RSS feed of recent changes that only contains summary lines, not diffs.
  • Write CpanBot that automatically trawls for CPAN-looking references and auto-corrects/verifies them if required.
  • Perhaps give a talk on User:VandalBot, or wiki-bot writing and WWW:Mech in general.


Sometimes I muck around in my own Sandbox. It's unlikely it contains anything useful.


I have a few patches that improve Pod::DocBook. They can be found at http://rt.cpan.org//Ticket/Display.html?id=18191 .
