Re: Top Seven (Bad) Reasons Not To Use Modules
in thread Top Seven (Bad) Reasons Not To Use Modules
I too have found CPAN to be indispensable. Not only does it help my productivity by solving one problem, but I often find myself writing code with future uses in mind. My code is also physically portable. I use a portable version of Strawberry on a thumb drive since our PC's are managed. All the better for me since I can take it anywhere I need it. Like dreadpiratepeter said, once you start using CPAN, you'll realize the benefits of not have to re-invent the wheel. My current favorite module is Text::CSV_XS. It's so handy I could cry...
