( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
The modules I use most in my stand-alone scripts are: (list was generated by a script, strict and friends removed)
  • Data::Dumper
  • Pod::Usage
  • File::Find
  • Imager or GD (using Imager exclusively now)
  • Parse::RecDescent (for fancy input parsing)
  • Getopt::Long
  • DBI
  • DB_File (for hash-persistance)
  • Config::IniFiles
  • CGI
  • HTML::Template
  • File::Stream
  • Tie::Hash::Abbrev (for shell like interfaces)
  • File::Copy
In my modules (, I tend to require other modules: (hand-selected list)
  • Carp
  • Data::Dumper
  • Test::More, Test::Distribution (staring to use this), Pod::Coverage
  • Parse::RecDescent
  • Imager, GD
  • many modules in the Math::* section since I'm developing Math::* modules myself pretty actively. Examples: Math::Complex, Math::Approx, Math::Spline, Math::Big*, Math::MatrixReal, etc.
  • perltidy (or Perl::Tidy), well, at least indirectly.
  • and many more...
