Hi, I’m perlancar, a programmer living in Indonesia. I’ve dabbled in more languages than I can remember or willing to admit to, but by far my favorite and still most used one is Perl 5. I’ve also released too many CPAN modules, because it is so much fun.

I have some older blogs, for example the one on blogs.perl.org (until Jan 2015).

My Github, Twitter.

If you’re wondering about my nickname, it’s an Indonesian word which happens to contain the string “perl” in it. The root word is “lancar” meaning smooth/fluent and “perlancar” means to make smoother/more fluent. Many people seem to mistype the nickname as “perlancer”. Which is okay, because it’s just a nickname.

    Hi there …

    I found a question on https://www.reddit.com/, asked by a person also using your nick name. In case it’s you, I have an answer. (But I’m not registeres at reddit.).

    The question was:

    This tool (included in Gentoo Linux) might be the answer:


    P.S.: I do not understand the words “Surel” and “Nama”, I guessed it’s “eMail” and “Name”. I also don’t know what “Beri tahu saya komentar baru melalui email.” means and guess it might be something like “also sent this message as a mail to my own address”. So I activated the checkbox.

      Hi Thomas,

      Yes, the reddit user is me. Thanks for the answer. ‘delay’ looks like just what I want. I wonder why it isn’t in Debian, etc?
