    PDL::OpenCV 0.001 has just been released. Notable changes since never:
    • It supports modules highgui, imgcodecs, imgproc, objdetect, tracking, videoio
    • In particular, it supports just about every class and function within those modules that are supported by the Python binding
    • Where possible, all inputs and outputs are ndarrays which get wrapped into Mat, Rect, std::vector<int>, etc internally, then translated back
    • There is a simplistic translation of the Doxygen docs into POD, see on MetaCPAN: https://metacpan.org/dist/PDL-OpenCV
    • It includes a perldl demo which shows off basic image-processing stuff (demo opencv)
    Future plans, in something like intended order:
    • Support the Params classes (possibly from Perl-land as a hash-ref)
    • Support more of the modules, both in the main OpenCV distribution and the "contrib" ones

    The IRC channel (#pdl on irc.perl.org) is a great virtual place to come and ask questions, or just watch the GitHub messages flow by.

    Please give the new release a try and report problems.

    As per this tweet from MetaCPAN the Twitter API changes coming very soon will mean an end to using Twitter to login to MetaCPAN. If this is your only login method, now might be a good time to pick another one.

    I miss BitCard.

    Update: the full-fat twitter link is here, in case the nitter version fails.

Perl::Dist::APPerl - Actually Portable Perl

    "Actually Portable Perl (APPerl) is a distribution of Perl that runs on several x86_64 operating systems (most Unix-like and Windows) via the same binary. It builds to a single binary with perl modules packed inside of it. Cross-platform, single binary, standalone Perl applications can be made by building custom versions of APPerl, with and without compiling Perl from scratch"

    I'm happy to announce/invite you (well, the German/close to Frankfurt part of "you") to the Frankfurt Perl Workshop, a small one-day workshop without schedule, and mostly about Perl:

    Hallo zusammen,

    am Sonntag, dem 06. November 2022 veranstalten wir wieder den Frankfurter Perl Workshop. Der Workshop findet wie 2019 im Haus der Jugend statt.

    Wir treffen uns ab 10 Uhr zu Vorträgen, gerne über Perl. Das Programm liegt nicht fest, aber Vorankündigungen sind gerne willkommen! Ich habe hoffentlich ein oder zwei Themen, die ich vortragen kann.

    Für Kaffee und Stückchen ist gesorgt, mittags gehen wir wahrscheinlich Pizza essen.

    Datum: 06.11.2022

    Uhrzeit: ab 10 Uhr

    Ort: Haus der Jugend, Deutschherrenufer, Frankfurt

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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
