OSX Package for Padre 0.92

I’m happy to provide the osx dmg for the latest Padre Perl IDE release, 0.92. The march to 1.0 continues thanks to the great work done by the Padre team! As usual, I used the Cava Packager to bundle the CPAN Padre with a few core plugins.

Please check this page for the latest package, and info on how to report bugs.

We would appreciate any testing you do on OSX, and please report bugs you run into. Why not stop by #padre and say hi while you download?

Note: Padre on OSX still has a number of rough edges.

Brewing aspell for emacs on OSX

A reminder to myself and a help for anyone trying to get ispell to work on OSX Emacs.

You can brew an install of aspell:

brew install aspell --lang=en

If you forget the –lang you may end up getting errors like:
Error: No word lists can be found for the language “en_US”.

I saw elsewhere that there may be some brews for the dictionaries themselves, but I didn’t see that on my system and didn’t investigate too much, since –lang worked fine on install.

To get emacs to use aspell, you just need to add this to your .emacs:

(setq-default ispell-program-name "/usr/local/bin/aspell")

That’s about it.
