in reply to Use modules or roll your own?

I would disagree with calling a Perl module a "black box". Maybe a "dark box", "light grey box", or a "cream box", depending on one's knowledge of Perl. Remember, with all Perl code the source is available for you to examine - and even modify if you wish. For someone wishing to learn about a new aspect of Perl, seeing how one welliimplemented solution approached a problem is an excellent way to learn.
