in reply to Module to parse output from Unix ps command?

P9Y::ProcessTable promises "will portably access the process table, no matter what the OS, and normalize its outputs to work similar across all platforms" but I have not idea how well it delivers on those promises. Not sure what motivated the author to pick "P9Y" as the top level name space either...

    From the documentation:

    P9Y?

    Portability. You know, like I18N and L10N.

      Oh... that's interesting. Totally OT here, but I had an interesting debate with the pumpkins of CPAN when I released RPG::Dice without realizing there was a Games::Dice module. My module does things slightly different than the other so I kept mine. Considering the rest of the family of modules that are undergoing much rewrite and debugging I did not want to have to refactor them as well to use the other module.

      So I guess we all have different views on name space.
