in reply to Favourite modules March 2004

Lately, for me:

  • File::Finder -- filter chaining all so much more elegant than File::Find
  • Proc::Background -- makes me able to forget the differences of process execution between Win32 and other OS's
  • File::Repl -- kind of cool non-local rsync-like module
  • DBD::Pg -- the want for it never goes away :)
  • WWW:Mechanize -- just played with it shortly, but definitely funky in a good way
  • YAML -- actual concise hand-editable serialization! Yes!
  • XML::Simple -- when folks aren't cool enough to use YAML :)
  • Tk -- looks aside, you can't beat a clean GUI API
  • MIDI::Simple -- has some fun examples, though my Computer Music for-fun projects aren't really going anywhere
  • PAR -- solid gold for program distribution. Convert perl to binary, "essentially".

[M4ver1k]: I feel like being able to toggle a running script on the fly by updating variables from a config file using Config::Simple. But in the while loop, it seems like it doesn't update the variable after the first past. Is this generally just a bad idea?
