in reply to A Macro System for Perl?

This, pimpx, came up on CPAN last night.

UPDATE: It is not called Devel::PiMPx, and includes documentation to boot.

perl -pew "s/\b;([mnst])/'$1/g"

    $ tar zxf pimpx-0.5.3.tar.gz $ cd pimpx-0.5.3 $ perldoc pimpx No documentation found for "pimpx".
    Hmm. Not good.


      Agreed, but what about the README? It would seem that there is an inference of compatiblity with C macros, and a familiarity with them on the users part. Then again, it's not as if I wrote it ;-) And of course, there's always the source.

      perl -pew "s/\b;([mnst])/'$1/g"

        The README is three lines long (aside from build instructions) and doesn't mention C macros at all. It comes with no examples and no tests. It is, for all intents and purpose aside from the author's own use, worthless.
