in reply to Regrettable module names


The idea for this module resulted from a conversation I had with chromatic here on Perl Monks, and was designed basically as a joke. The name I gave it is way to long, but I felt that naming it something like Acme::RSP wouldn't be very descriptive either.

    I like this one. The only thing that I think you could possibly do better would be to imply the Protocol somehow and just name it Acme::Remote::Strangulation. Also, some code examples in the perldoc would be nice too. :)
      Thank you for the suggestions :-) I will put them in my To-Do list for the module.

      Shouldn't it be Acme::Strangulation::Remote? Seems more in keeping with the general-to-specific idea of name spaces...
