in thread Remove CGI.pm from Perl Core?

Forgot to sign in?   (Will every Monk please keep things &rsquou;round here “strictly business” and just skip the jabs and downvotes?   They get wearisome.)   Anyway ... it was a serious question/comment.

Take CGI::Application as just one example:   it’s slightly hidden, but there it is ...

# Include CGI.pm and related modules require CGI;

... and the list of dependents is really quite large.   While CGI might not be the best way to run a big, fast web-site, the original way of automating a web-site is still in very common use.   I sensed in the original post (my view only ...) the notion that CGI should be dropped because it is unfashionable.   It is stable, and anything but large, and I suspect that it is much more widespread than one might prefer ... and still doing its job.

    "it’s slightly hidden, but there it is ..."

    It's not at all hidden, it's quite clearly listed as a dependency.

    Stop complaining about the downvotes, and improve the quality of your posts -- spend less time formatting your italics, and more time writing clear coherent and on topic responses

    ... the notion that CGI should be dropped because it is unfashionable ...

    That isn't an argument for or against keeping CGI.pm in the core --- CPAN modules use CGI.pm, fantastic, CGI.pm is on CPAN, they can still use it
