how did this module get into CPAN ?!by spx2 (Chaplain)
|on Jul 21, 2008 at 05:31 UTC||Need Help??|
spx2 has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
Recently I wanted to use some code in a script I wrote so I thought of getting it from CPAN.
I wanted to use something to get cmd arguments and their values and this seemed nice(it was nice before looking at the source code).
After some time I looked at the module and wondered what could be in.
Covered with curiosity I couldn't resist not pressing the SOURCE CODE link to
see what could lie behind it.
What I found took was a BIG surprise,IT WAS A COMPLETE AND UTTER PILE OF OVERBLOATED CRAP!
I mean,without any disrespect for the author(which I don't know and hope will not need to anytime soon).
I propose the following code which is cleaner and more readable:
And all these for a simple module !
