This looks like a work in progress to me, written in the style of Perl from the mid-90's.

You might get a more favourable review if you had a basic installation script written for installation and setup. At the very least, unpacking the archive should presumably set up a vanilla installation that just works. I don't see that right now.

Enjoy your travels!

    Unpacking the archive, installing the db and modifying main.settings will set up a basic setup, but it's not designed for clicky clicky users. You are right on the style of code - it's not OO. Many have a problem with this, but when speed matters, functional is faster. That said, all code must come from trusted sources. I'm aware of the disadvantages. Regards, Andrew

      I'm not really a 'clicky-click' user -- I'm happiest at the command line. Your package doesn't even have instructions on how to install your system, let alone an install shell script.

      I like OO, but I'm not sure it's dramatically slower than straight functional programming, as you're implying.

        .. all code must come from trusted sources.

      Well, I trust CPAN just fine, and I'm happy to build on the excellent building blocks that it provides.

        Hi sir, Go to igaro.com then 'deployment' for install instructions. Rgs, Andrew
