in reply to I have been away from perl for a long time. Need suggestions for getting back in the game!

Since 2002 the Perl community has changed a lot, mostly towards better development practices.

A first (and of course incomplete) list of things to have a look at would be:

  • Perl's Best Practices, for the current... best practices in Perl devlopment (and Perl::Critic to see how they can be checked automatically in your code),
  • Devel::Cover to better test your code,
  • Moose for the latest bestest OO system,
  • CPANTS to see what a modern module (and by extension any code) is supposed to look like,
