Reducing crashers to a minimum program

Inspired by the C-Reduce project, which reduces C programs that cause compiler crashes to a minimal program that still causes the crash, I have started perl-reduce, which does the same for perl programs which segfault, cause valgrind issues, etc. The first draft is at:

and I'm hoping to collect some user experiences for a bit more tweaking before widely advertising it in the perl community. If you have a crasher that you've never narrowed down because it looked too tedious, please give perl-reduce a try.

[ozboomer]: Howdy, all.. Trying this once more... Not really a perl question :(... but I don't know how to even title my query (more...)
[ozboomer]: There's a text file with lots of sections in it, like an '.ini/.conf' file. Each section can be 'used' or 'unused' by its application (more...)
[ozboomer]: Some folk want to use the text file as 'storage', keeping ALL items in it (a database); others call it an 'active document' that should only contain 'in-use' sections. Is there a 'good practice' for this sort of thing?
