Summary

Physics::Journeymy Personal $raku-journeyHaving hit rock bottom with an ‘I can’t understand my own code sufficiently enough to extend/maintain it’, I have been on a journey to review the perl5 Physics::Unit design and to use this to cut through my self made mess of raku Physics::Unit version 0.0.2.Now I bring the perspective of a couple of years of regular raku coding to bear, so I am hoping that the bastard child of mature perl5 and raku version one will surpass both in the spirit of David Bowie’s “Pretty Things”.One of the reasons I chose Physics::Units as a project was that, on the face of it, it seemed to have an aspect that could be approached by raku Grammars – helping me learn them. Most importantly Real values are kept as Rats as much as possible which helps greatly for example, when round tripping 38.5 °C to  °F and back it is still equals 38.5 °C!One final remark – use Grammar::Tracer is a fantastic debugging tool for finding and fixing the subtle bugs that can come in and contributing to quickly getting to the optimum solution.Fill in your details below or click an icon to log in:
