A couple of modules I couldn't live without (well, almost):

File::Basename - Neat little module for picking apart a path/filename/suffix without having to do it with a regex.
File::Copy - Nice to be able to copy and move files without having to resort to system() calls.
File::Path - mkdir() doesn't make paths recursively, this does.
File::Slurp - I don't write my own read_file() subs anymore. :-)
HTML::Template - Fast and simple templating.
MIME::Lite - Send multipart emails easily.
XML::Twig - When the XML document is too large to slurp in all at once.

[stevieb]: ...you're testing is a test system itself. 10+ documented issues fixed, another half dozen found while fixing the original ones. I'm getting there...
[stevieb]: Then throw in changes to Windows that throws everything you trusted right out the window.

[stevieb]: shmem thanks for the 'insight' :P
