Maybe I didn't make clear that I'm talking about the expected standard of this board not about applying for a job.

I know that I make plenty of mistakes and do not really write "educated" English. But it's not only not bothering me ... it's important for the sake of communication that it doesn't hinder me to talk frankly!

Personally I preferre much more foreigners who talk easily but make errors than people who elaborate flawless phrases for minutes. Therefore it's much more important to be understood than to sound educated.

And for the posters which are not understood it's pretty unlikely that they will really understand any reply. So better ignore...

> And for the record, you are succeeding in using English well despite the fact that you're complaining about the impossibility of doing so.

Thanks! Well mixing German with French helps. Spellchecking is activated. And some strategies to pretend intellectuality just work in most languages alike... ;-)

Cheers Rolf

[stevieb]: I really dislike how perlbrew doesn't list your version of perl if a newer minor version bump has happened. eg: I use 5.24.1, but 5.24.2 is available, hiding my 5.24.1. I may look at this, as I made it display correctly in berrybrew in cases like this
[stevieb]: choroba just gleaned your post about Module::Starter. I use it too, pretty much for every dist I write
[LanX]: I remeber M::S (it was dialog driven?) to be buggy
[stevieb]: As far as Dist::Zilla goes, I don't like installing that other than on systems my test platorm runs on. I find it too heavy. I prefer being able to glean a Makefile.PL
[LanX]: what's frustrating me is that a distribution has lots of dupplicated info
[stevieb]: LanX I don't know if it's dialog driven; I just use it in the simplest of terms (just run module-starter at the CLI, and the very last couple of lines are how I use it.
[stevieb]: which dist are you speaking of regarding dups, LanX?
