I've worked on my perl program a bit, and added stuff like command
line switches to it. I've gotten it set up so that, if I don't enter
a switch, it will display the contents of the 'calendar' file, and if
there is a command line switch, it won't. Nothing fancy...
I've attatched it, because I don't want to spend a lot of time
stripping out a lot of comments. Hope you don't mind. Here's what I
want to do (other than update the TODO in it):
1) More interactive: Nothing like Ncurses, just something along the
lines of if I add my -A switch (for Add), and I don't specify any
input, that it will allow me to enter input rather than just add a
2) Make it use arrays! That is, be able to read arrays from disk. Or
would I just be better off telling it to use postgres as a database?
Either way, I don't know what to do.
3) Make it able to search for a specific item, and/or sort by specific
items. Very useful, dunno if it's worth the time and effort, really.
That's all I can think of at the moment.
Oh yeah, the announcement!
I'm going to Los Angeles, California on the 8th this month, to attend
the DCLA conference there. I'm going to be in a plane on Monday!
Very nervous, I am. I believe that we will be driving a 2hr drive
down to Toronto, Ontario, and then taking a flight from there all the
way to LA (hope I get a window seat!!)
Any LG people in LA? Maybe we could meet (unlikely, but would be nice :D)
Apparently, the hotel is nearby the conference (a Hilton, I've heard)
*** Clarjon1 at jon.clarjon1.linux goes off, being excited...
