Hi Aldebaran,

Thanks for buying the book! :)

Buy a Pi 3 and a NoIR Camera Board v2. Make sure you've got a 2.1A USB charger plug with a good quality cable. You'll also need a good micro SD card. Mine all range from 16-64GB. Spend a little more here; a quality card makes a difference. All in all, you should be right there in around $100.

I learned XS over time and don't remember the reading I did. WiringPi, which is the backend to RPi::WiringPi which the Raspberry Pi book is based on is an XS module. Most of the code wraps an external C/C++ library, but there is some XS involved. A very trivial XS module I've written is Bit::Manip. There's not much XS there either, but it's a good example of how to present C functions to Perl code, how the files all hang together and such.

Happy travels,

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
