in reply to Memory Efficient Alternatives to Hash of Array

While Perl has become the language du jour for bioinformatics, something of this size will benefit from using something like CouchDB or BigTable. In general, I would look at Erlang. Most bio problems are massively parallelizable and that's one of the things Erlang was specifically designed to do.

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?

[Your Mother]: :P
[LanX]: Moma knows best! ;-)
[Your Mother]: I am quite aware that Module::Build is MUCH more in favor with many monks but I had trouble with it every time I tried to use it and trouble with CPAN stuff that used it too.
[Your Mother]: Take my advice with a grain of salt. I haven't done a new CPAN release in years at this point.
[LanX]: I want to author a new module for CPAN w/o complicated build structure
[LanX]: ther is also Dist::Zilla :-/
[LanX]: How to make a CPAN Module Distribution from 2002
[Your Mother]: Dist::Zilla is kind of the nuclear option. I set it up back in the day but it's really targeted at authors who are managing MANY modules and want to automate everything.
[erix]: perlancar should know ;)
[LanX]: see warning
