thanks for your commentary. I've checked my email, I don't see any messages from you to say that you've got problems installing C::MM. Did I miss one? Is there an email misdirect somewhere? Did you mail me as a different name? Have I simply mis-filed? If you let me know how to reproduce them, I'll see if I can help. I have MacOS X and linux available.
If you want a simple module, write a simple module. C::MM tries to do some complex stuff, so it's a complex module. If you want a simple interface to the more common tasks, I'm open to contributions.
