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 MS Windows.

At the very least people need to read the POD for each module, study the APIs and rationales and make an educated choice.

If in doubt, ask for clarification before you 'flame'.
