in reply to RFC: Module namespace suggestion

If it's really simple and totally compatible with DBI, why not submit it as a patch to DBI? That way, everyone gets to use your work instead of just those people who find it. I know that if it was in DBI, I'd use it. If it's in some other module, 10-1 I wouldn't be able to get it installed.


My criteria for good software:
  1. Does it work?
  2. Can someone else come in, make a change, and be reasonably certain no bugs were introduced?

    Thanks for your response. I think this could be included on DBI, but now it relies on SQL::Tokenizer to, well, extract tokens from a SQL query, but it is pure Perl and uses only regular expressions, so would be slow for most people.

    Maybe I could call it DBIx::NamedPlaceholder for instance, to people start using it, and then propose make it a patch into DBI.

    Would this be a good plan?

    your code, your rules.

      That sounds completely reasonable. Alternately, you could called it DBIx::Placeholder::Named, but your solution is just fine.

        DBIx::Placeholder::Named is really fine. I'll refactor it soon to adapt the new name, then release it at CPAN.

        Thanks for your support.
