This Week I Learned - 2016 Week 46

Last week post or the whole series.

Busy week. Probably the busiest week ever and I only managed to settle down. Sickness, faulty workstation, and idiocracy all over the places.

Follow up from last week in investigating C++. It seems that `unsigned` is equivalent to `unsigned int`.

On the Perl front. Seriously, Perl's CPAN does have almost everything under the sun. Yes, the damn xxx helper function does exists. When I started my job as a programmer many moons ago, we have this helper debug cum print function called `xxx` in PHP. Besides the benefits of easy to type and identify, the Perl's version does not requires any parenthesis (one of the quirks of Perl), thus a major saving of two key strokes and your pinky as well.
