How do you decide to use a module from CPAN or not?by trs80 (Priest)

I have used more modules then I can remember over the years
to get various projects done and I have been curious
how others decide if they will use a particular module.
I am very impatient so I take the code that is in the
synopsis and modify it slightly to fit what I am doing
and if that runs fine and I understand it, I explore a
little further. If a module doesn't make sense right off
the bat I scrape it. I know I have lost out on some very
good modules since I wasn't willing to invest the time to
What do other monks do?
