Modules I've found helpful: IPC::Run3, File::HomeDir, ExtUtils::Command, Probe::Perl ...
I have to somewhat emphatically add File::Save::Home to this list, as contrasted
with File::HomeDir, which arguably does not really do the right thing on
At the very least people need to read the POD for each module, study the APIs and rationales
and make an educated choice.

Words can be slippery, so consider who speaks as well as
what is said;
know as much as you can about the total context of the speaker's
participation in a forum over time, before deciding that you fully
comprehend the intention behind those words. If in doubt, ask
for clarification before you 'flame'.
