Open source is about giving, and accepting what you get. It isn't about taking or demanding.

If an author of a module doesn't reply to you in a time frame that's acceptable to you, too bad for you. (Sh/H)e donated to original code, and not someone else. I think it nothing to be decency to accept the gift as is, and, if I think I can do it better I can publish something else (if I'm lucky, the license allows me to reuse code).

S'funny, till now I had you down
I don't give a rats ass what you think of me.

[hippo]: :-D
[Eily]: you mean a dll where the SW was written in perl? That sounds unlikely
[muthusathish]: please help me regarding this
[hippo]: Easier just to go and look at the source, no?
[Eily]: mostly because perl isn't compiled in the usual sense of the meaning, you can't execute the opcodes directly, you need the perl engine
[muthusathish]: i dont have the environment too, but i need to get the logics so that i can re-wite
[Eily]: what makes you think your dll is "perl based" ?
[muthusathish]: i dont have source code too
[muthusathish]: it is used in VB 6 appln, while debugging is getting error
[hippo]: Somebody has. Ask the author.
