Last meeting : Tues Oct 11th, room E51-376 Perl 5.24 meets Abe Lincoln (Bill Ricker)

Last month, I did my usual Cryptographic History talk before's GPG/PGP keysigning.
The title was "Transposition Cyphers in Historic Context", looking at a theory and two specific uses, President Lincoln and German Army Corps WW1.
As usual, there was a bit of Perl code used for demonstration - for Lincoln's.
This time, I used the 5.020 experimental features that we've discussed in new release feature reviews postderef and signatures (both promoted to stable in 5.024 so safe to use in real code).
BLU saw the history, but this month, gets to see the code.
The full schedule and history can be found on our Calendar.
