in reply to Favourite modules March 2004

++ for pointing me towards File::Slurp, I'd like to see this one added to the core along with an implementation of tilly's idea, perhaps r/R?

Favourite modules (picked because I use them a lot and listed alphabetically):

    Why in CORE? Besides, module is broken.

      Because I use perl on a large number and variety of machines where installing modules is not always practical or possible, if it is in core I don't have to worry.

      I understand there are moves afoot to "slim down" core and I don't object to that but personally I think both of the modules I mentioned are small and useful enough to warrant including them... not that I expect my opinion to carry any weight :)

    I'd like to see [slurp] added to the core
    Then take a look at Perl6::Slurp for a Perl 5 implementation of our current notion of Perl 6's slurp built-in.

    What? You meant "added to the Perl 5 core"? Sorry, can't help there... ;-)
