My Favourite Modules in use for April 2003

  1. XML::XPath - XPath expressions rock da house for extracting stuff
  2. WWW::Mechanize - Since I do webscraping a lot
  3. CGI::Wiki - Since I use it for my wiki

My Favourite Modules not in use for April 2003

  1. File::Find::Rule - I recommend it wherever I can, but haven't used it myself yet. But I like the API.
  2. dotdotdot - the yadda yadda yadda operator makes for nice, compiling examples, and still prevents the user from blindly running the example without changing the minor nits.
  3. P6P5 by xmath - Perl 6 rules rule !

My least favourite module currently in use for April 2003

  1. HTML::Tidy - it's got no documentation, it's got a horrible interface from Perl, is written in C++ and (under Linux) it has a LOT of underdocumented dependencies that can't be installed through my package managers (apt-get resp. CPAN). This is the first module where installation under Windows was easier than under Linux. Watch out for HTML::Tidy::Simple, a wrapper that will try to user HTML::Tidy and, if its not there, shell out to the tidy program (which is what I now use under Linux).
    ptidy sourceforge page (0 released files)
    tidylib Perl bindings (got this to work)

Update: Added links to HTML::Tidy

perl -MHTTP::Daemon -MHTTP::Response -MLWP::Simple -e ' ; # The $d = new HTTP::Daemon and fork and getprint $d->url and exit;#spider ($c = $d->accept())->get_request(); $c->send_response( new #in the HTTP::Response(200,$_,$_,qq(Just another Perl hacker\n))); ' # web
