Stuff I wrote
Module Favorites and/or honorable mentions:
WWW::Mechanize, XML::XPath. Text::Balanced, Devel::Peek, Module::Corelist, Module::Release, DBM::Deep, Tie::File, Math::Units::PhsyicalValue, Benchmark, Net::Server, MIME::Lite (html), Net::SMTP::OneLiner (quick text), HTML::Table::FromDatabase, File::Slurp, IPC::System::Simple
This is potentially useful in many different situations: m/blarg/ and m/\Gelseward/
I always mean to use this, but forget about it: perl -MO=Deparse yourcode.pl
This is like bash -x script.sh, but for perl: PERLDB_OPTS=AutoTrace perl -d script.pl
Pike's previous_object() is sadly missing from perl... or is it? previous_object()
Devel::EvalError seems to indicate that checking $@ for eval errors is going to fail some of the time.
Modules I mean to look at but haven't
I have a huge library of roll-your-own CGI stuff that I use. Recently I started looking at more modern alternatives. I mean to try to use CGI::Application eventually. It's really neat. That necessarily implies the use of CGI::Application::Plugin::Session, since I really like (and already use) CGI::Session. I disliked CGI::Session::Auth after careful examination... If you have any other suggestions, /msg them over please.
Monks I know IRL
The JBlue CSS was originally my creation — but it was not done in css way back then.
If you go Skydiving in Michigan. Be sure to let me know. Um, actually if you've ever done even a single jump, let me know. I'd like to know who the skydiving Perl Monks are.

If you were born on 11/5, msg me or swampyankee to get in on the webring. It's a circular linked list.
