in thread Five Common Misconceptions While Learning Perl
Using modules is only worth it if you're good enough at Perl to debug the flaws in someone else's module
Extending that idea to code reuse in general, is using perl only "worth it" if you're "good enough" to debug flaws in that? What about an operating system? Or your computer's processor? Sure, all these things can and do contain bugs, but it's still very much "worth it" to use them.
