The Perl programming language

Perl has been my pro­gram­ming weapon of choice since 1994 and a con­sis­tent pay­check since 2007. I start­ed [blog­ging about it][tag/perl] in earnest on New Year’s Day 2021.

This post also serves to test Bridgys new abil­i­ty to sup­port favorites as well as likes. Because I like many com­put­er lan­guages, but Perl is my favorite. ❤️

Sounds like this change would need to happen in that WordPress plugin though, not in Bridgy, right?

I’m not so sure. The plug-​in uses a dif­fer­ent prop­er­ty for each (like-​of vs. favorite-​of) and there’s some argu­ment that they mean dif­fer­ent things to users and are treat­ed dif­fer­ent­ly on dif­fer­ent sys­tems, though I don’t think any sys­tem cur­rent­ly uses both. So a POSSE gate­way like Bridgy should con­sol­i­date both to a sin­gle prop­er­ty for sys­tems that do that, but pre­serve the abil­i­ty to keep them sep­a­rate should a dif­fer­ent (or new­er ver­sion) receiv­er dis­tin­guish between the two.

In any case I think the plug-​in should pre­serve the exist­ing prop­er­ties authors have already added to posts rather than lose infor­ma­tion by con­sol­i­dat­ing their mean­ing at the source.
