in thread I mostly sleep...

There is much in what you say, but I think this world is designed by scrawny rice-cake-chompin' people with ethnic backgrounds that are associated with shortness and smallness. I am 6'2" and descended from German farmers, and they do NOT build this world for people my size. Heck, I have trouble getting in and out of Japanese mid-size cars!

I can only imagine what people who are REALLY big and tall, like NBA and NFL players, have to deal with: cars, clothes, etc etc etc. It's just the man keeping us down, I s'pose.

    Hey, I'm 5 ft 8 in tall. Other than coach class seat in airlines (which were designed by sadists who always fly first class -- all airline executives should be required, by law, to fly long distances in the narrowest seats with the least pitch of any aircraft operated by their airline), I'm usually not cramped (except when there are 400 pounders in the adjacent seat on Metro North. Or people who don't stand close enough to the soap when they bathe. Frequently, these are the same people).

    In any case, I've never run across a parent who had a full term baby who fit the '0-3 month size', including my sister, whose kids tended to bounce along at the bottom of the growth charts.

    At that time [1909] the chief engineer was almost always the chief test pilot as well. That had the fortunate result of eliminating poor engineering early in aviation.

[stevieb]: As far as Dist::Zilla goes, I don't like installing that other than on systems my test platorm runs on. I find it too heavy. I prefer being able to glean a Makefile.PL
[LanX]: what's frustrating me is that a distribution has lots of dupplicated info
[stevieb]: LanX I don't know if it's dialog driven; I just use it in the simplest of terms (just run module-starter at the CLI, and the very last couple of lines are how I use it.
[stevieb]: which dist are you speaking of regarding dups, LanX?
[LanX]: readme version number and so on ...
[stevieb]: with M::S, you can also add other tags, but defaults work... such as --license=perl --eumm
[LanX]: I'm not a big fan of pure make, apparently the auto generated ones are so complicated to be able to work with all possible makes
[stevieb]: I find the M::S makefiles it generates are quite straight forward, and I usually have to add a few things (github info etc). They're about 15 lines or so give or take.
[Corion]: I don't think the EUMM-generated Makefile is that complicated ;)
