Item Description: it displays trees of data.often known as HList

Review Synopsis:

Disclaimer: this review is preliminary.and will be extended once I will get the hang of that much needed module.

I don't know other HList CGI support. so this module is most welcome.

At first look the API is very clean. Keep It Simple.
flame bait: KIS is too rare in the Perl world that delights too often on uneeded diversity and complexity, opening the road to languages that suffer the oposite shortcoming: lacking versatility.

But I immediately ran into a major disappointment, the bundled demo was easily installed but failed to perform correctly on browsers other than Internet Explorer. CGI::explorer due to the use of proprietary tags. The module author is aware of it and will fix that.

    nice alternative is here http://www.treeview.net/ ..it puts all the work out in the browser using javascript (cross browser) A simple cgi script can be written to output a handful of javascript library calls & then the treeview classes render the tree in the browser.
