Module Design Forum

I think it would be nice to have an area where an RFC for
a module can be posted and feedback can be given.

The plus is people like myself creating modules with the
intent of releasing them on CPAN can get feedback about
what features should be added and can hopefully avoid
coding in a box. I myself have no one that I communicate
with other then mailing lists and sites like this. It would
be nice to brain storm.

see here for more information.

    You might also check out the module-authors mailing list which is for just this sort of thing.

    I've seen nodes like that show up in Meditations, and occasionally (especially if they're more concrete, with some code already written) in Seekers of Perl Wisdom. I'm not convinced that there needs to be a new section.

    Well, I think this is a pretty good idea. If you're writing a module you wan't to know if something similar already exsists (it's not alway obvious) and what interfaces and calling conventions other modules use.

    I guess these areas are already covered in Seekers of Perl Wisdom and Meditations, but let's face it: we have three different (and partially overlapping) sections for code (Craft, Snippets and Code) so I don't see why a new and more focused discussion area would be a problem.

[davido]: then it reads from /etc/passwd to decide who my uid is.
[davido]: sorry, typed that before you asked me to disable proc
[davido]: but you stumped me; don't know how to disable proc.
[tye]: I don't know if you can just dismount, but I thought so.
