in thread The App:: namespace? Sharing a webapp on CPAN

If the webapp wasn't on CPAN, you could do the same thing. Or, you could just bundle the modules you need and, that way, you're guaranteeing the proper versions. Just because you require v1.34+ doesn't mean that 1.35 didn't break something you need.
This already happens with the webapp, as it has ver 1 of the CPAN module bundled. Sometimes, 1.1 ver of the CPAN module gets installed site wide and things blow up. I'm hoping this won't happen - or if it does, I'll know about it, at the same time as everyone else.

Forcing everyone to come to CPAN just to get your app means you're limiting your userbase to Perl users.

I'm not forcing anyone, it just another alternative, *specifically* for perl geeks, with a lot of benefits. Non-Perl geeks don't know how to use CPAN and that's the current userbase. I'd like to grow the userbase.

If you don't care, why are you expressing an opinion?

    I don't care what language the apps I use are written in. I do care about how applications are distributed and installed. Distribution from CPAN is a very non-ideal way. There are much better ways to distribute and install. Hence, why I'm expressing an opinion.

    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?

[Corion]: Maybe the solution would be a tablet (with pens), like the Wacom tablets, but you still need good software and need to know how to operate it well in an interactive setting ;)
[ambrus]: Corion: the solution depends on who for. Some non-math presentations need to show lots of graphics or photos, with fine details and color. For those, blackboard or overhead transparencies aren't so good (yes, you can print on transparencies, but there's s
[ambrus]: ome quality limits), but film projection or computer projector is fine.
[ambrus]: A minority of math presenters are traditional and don't want to operate a computer. For them, handwritten overhead transparencies and blackboard are fine.
[Corion]: BTW, has anybody seen the Microsoft Surface Studio thing live?
[ambrus]: Some will operate a computer, but want to operate crazy unusable android-like GUIs. For those, printed overhead transparencies or simple slide editors and maybe even tablets are fine.
