Thread: What is your favourite module?
Is a question I always ask potential new staff.
it doesn't matter to me what the answer is, but it is important they have an answer.
So.... What is your favourite
I don't have ONE favourite module. Here are some I use very often:
Perl::Tidy - Parses and beautifies
Perl::Critic - Critique
Perlsource code for best-practices
CGI - Simple Common Gateway Interface Class
DBI - Database independent interface for
Date::Calc - Gregorian calendar date calculations
Hi Jason, nice to see you here.
My favorite is LWP
It's really the only pm I use. I don't like
perlmodules much. The documention is everywhere online,
but it's all the same man page mirrored in 1,000 places LOL, and not written for beginners.
Tutorials and *working* examples are scarce.
perlmodule would have to save me a week's time of coding before I'd use it or save me
It's either WWW::Mechanize or Data:umper... Hrm, if I get 2 I may as well make it 3 and take HTML::TreeBuilder
I have to agree about LWP and also the Mech.
Mech is really built on top of LWP so I can't knock either of them.
I absolutely LOVE Moz Mech and Win32 Mech though as you get access to the DOM as well
I never use
Perhaps someone should throw up a "why" for those of us, like me, who know
PHPand 10 other languages who need to be convinced that it is actually worth their time
a new one!
