DAVEM TPF Grant Novemeber 2011 report
Message ID:
As per my grant conditions, here is a report for the November period.

Spent it continuing my overhaul of the re_eval mechanism.
This month I made literal code blocks work properly within runtime
patterns, i.e.


(they had already been made to work properly within compile-time patterns,
i.e. /foo(?{...})/ )

I also made it so that qr//'s embedded within other patterns are no longer
simply stringified and interpolated into the new pattern; instead, any code
blocks within the qr are reused rather than recompiled. So this now works:

    { my $x = 1; $r = qr/(??{$x})/ }
    my $x = 2;
    print "ok\n" if "1" =~ /^$r$/;

Over the last month I have averaged 13 hours per week.

As of 2011/11/30: since the beginning of the grant:

  90.4 weeks
1015.4 total hours
  11.2 average hours per week

There are now 285 hours left on the grant.

Report for period 2011/11/01 to 2011/11/30 inclusive
