in thread My preferred version control system is...

I've only used ClearCase and Subversion as well. And ClearCase was my first version control system I'd ever used, so I didn't have a very good basis for comparison.

But I do have to say that I had decent results with using ClearCase. The 'find' and 'describe' commands were complex enough to write Perl scripts as a wrapper, which led to additional scripts that would do things like listing which files changed between given labels. In short, I found that ClearCase was fairly easy to deal with on the command line, and haven't yet gotten up to speed on the same level with Subversion.

But what I'm really curious about is why a given version control system is better than another. Hmm. Maybe a Meditation-worthy question (but pretty OT to Perl itself).

[Your Mother]: I am quite aware that Module::Build is MUCH more in favor with many monks but I had trouble with it every time I tried to use it and trouble with CPAN stuff that used it too.
[Your Mother]: Take my advice with a grain of salt. I haven't done a new CPAN release in years at this point.
[LanX]: I want to author a new module for CPAN w/o complicated build structure
[LanX]: ther is also Dist::Zilla :-/

[Your Mother]: Dist::Zilla is kind of the nuclear option. I set it up back in the day but it's really targeted at authors who are managing MANY modules and want to automate everything.
[erix]: perlancar should know ;)
[LanX]: see warning
