OK, so here is my list:

  • CGI (including the HTML generation methods ;--),
  • Text::Template is my one-stop templating module,
  • Data::Denter, because I like the output better than Data::Dumper,
  • Inline::Files: way cool way to get code and data in a single file,
  • AnyData: get your data from CSV, log files, XML...
  • Roman, poster child of the small but ocasionnaly useful module, and why CPAN is such a wonderful place,

XML modules:

  • XML::PYX for quickly extracting info from an XML document,
  • XML::Twig for all the rest (yes I am biased ;--)

And of course:

    * Text::Template is my one-stop templating module,
    * Inline::Files: way cool way to get code and data in a single file,

    You like templating, but also like having code and data in a single file? Could you please explain how those two go together? :)

      Oddly enough, I don't usually mix them. But actually I don't see any reason why you could not have the template as data in one of the inlined files.

    I agree wholeheartedly about Roman. It is indicative of the beauty of CPAN. And the perfect example of why to look there before leaping at any problem.
    In my roguelike game Tapestry, you can create characters from a template, they are named Fred, Fred II, Fred III, etc. I had written roman numeral translators in the past (I had once implemented LISP's format stuff into C and C++) and they are a big pain in the neck. So I look on CPAN and read,install,integrate... problem solved.
