Catalyst sure is wide and deep. One can get a reasonably advanced app
Re: Dealing with timestamps from Postgres
[In reply to]
running in Catalyst without knowing broad stretches of what goes on, or
*can* go on, under the hood. There's so much possible, and so many handy
methods and plugins that you're gonna A) overlook things on the mad dash to
the goal or B) not understand the value of things until much later (like
abstracting code to a library, it often takes a few iterations before the
utility becomes obvious).
This case was a combination of both.
I often struggle to find the answer to a "has someone else solved this
already" question, and wind up rolling my own solution... only to run in to
someone else's cleverer, cleaner approaches later (often by accident). In
order to have 'perfect documentation' it must meet two criteria: A) explain
the utility and usage (benefits and how-to) *in a way that I can grok* and
B) show up on my radar *in my searches*. Both of these depend a helluva lot
on my own activity and context, making compliance impossible. :)
Sometimes scar tissue is the only (best?) way to really learn.
