TDK pieces release as Open Source?

Since ActiveState is not longer developing the TDK -- or at least pieces of it (e.g. the compiler), will ActiveState release those pieces it no longer intends to develop to the Open Source community?

If so, when?

Wx is missing in 5.24

Wx (any version) is missing in 5.24 (all platforms). It was available in 5.22 on Windows and seems to build normally with CitrusPerl and StrawberryPerl.

PDK Dead?

Is this product still an active project? I know that it adds support for newer versions of perl but there doesn't seam like much of anything else has changed. Do you have a product road map that shows if there are new versions of PDK in the pipeline? This is a great product by the way I was just hoping you could answer my questions.

New to Go on Windows

Question: 

I'm new to Go. I've installed ActiveGo. How do I get started?

Answer: 

Start here:
http://docs.activestate.com/activego/1.8/doc/code.html
The introduction will explain how your workspace is arranged. In case you missed it, your $GOPATH has already been set by the ActiveGo installer.

If you don't use Git already, you should install it and learn how to use it. Git is an essential supporting tool for coding in Go.

There's a simple HelloWorld program in the Go introduction.

ActiveGo sets up local documentation on your system as a document server. On the local ActiveGo documentation start page, there is an interactive Sandbox window labelled "Try Go". You will see the source code before it compiles. When you click "Run" the code compiles and displays the result in the box below the source code. There's a pull-down with a small set of sample Go snippets.

How to use already compiled dependencies instead of compiling from source ?

I have made some modules on cpan that depend on Gtk2 (or Wx) packages. Compiling these packages from scratch fails most of the time and so the whole build of my modules fails too.

For example
https://code.activestate.com/ppm/Gtk2-Ex-DbLinker/#0.109__MSWin32-x64__5.24

I know that Gtk2 for windows exsist as ppm modules that can be installed without compiling:

ppm install http://www.sisyphusion.tk/ppm/Cairo.ppd
ppm install http://www.sisyphusion.tk/ppm/Glib.ppd
ppm install http://www.sisyphusion.tk/ppm/Pango.pp
ppm install http://www.sisyphusion.tk/ppm/Gtk2.ppd

Installing ActiveState in a virtual machine using Vagrant

Hi!

I would like to install ActiveTcl in a few virtual machines (Vagrant boxes) managed by Vagrant. I've already installed ActiveTcl manually on my host machine, and what I tried, since apparently there's no supported way of doing this, is to create a script that would install me ActiveTcl when provisioning the Vagrant boxes. The problem is that the installer of ActiveTcl is a UI wizard, and probably I can't install ActiveTcl through a script.

Mail::Sender

Hi,

I'm the current maintainer for Mail::Sender https://metacpan.org/pod/Mail::Sender

I'd like to ask that the current version on PPM be updated to match the current, deprecated version of Mail::Sender out on the CPAN. The release currently in PPM is an older release that contains a bug that ActiveState users have to patch.

Ideally, nobody should be using Mail::Sender at this point in time as Email::Sender (and Email::Stuffer) exist to make your life easier. However, I'd prefer to update the PPM version of Mail::Sender to the one that has this particular known bug corrected.

how to sub using undefined hash item

I have a hash $X{'*1'}="A"; $X{'*2'}="B";

and

while(<>) { s/(\*[0-9]+)/$X{$1}/g }

input lines are like

*1
*1 *1 *2 *1

Problem is a line like

this *3 is an errant line

returns

this is an errant line

I can search for 2 spaces, but I'd have to remove spaces first.

Is there a way to say "don't do the substitutuion if $X{$1} doesn't exist without breaking into more wordy PERL?

Where is Expectk ?

I used Expect for awhile on one project many years ago, and have pretty much forgotten everything I once knew, so please view this "noobie" question in that light. The original book by Don Libes, chapter 19 mentions a companion program called Expectk (Expect + Tk). I cannot seem to find it in any open source repositories or sites. Yet the README file of the most recent .tar.gz file that I downloaded from the Expect home page still mentions it. Does anybody know where I can get this companion program, or if it no longer in use, why that is so?
Thank you.
