Ahh! the dangers of being a New Age Open Source Duct Tape Folk Hero

' So, I rummaged around for the right event loop or RPC package. I figured this was already a frequently-solved problem, so there was no point in reinventing the wheel. I investigated the Event package, POE, most of the stuff in the RPC:: and IPC:: sections of the CPAN, and was astounded to find that nobody had seemed to tackle this particular problem in a way that I wanted it done. Or at least, in a way that I could easily find it.'

and in next months follow up article

'OK, by the time I did all this, I could have simply used POE or Event, both found in the CPAN. But going through all the reasons that those features are there was a good exercise for me. Sometimes leverage is the right thing, and in hindsight, I might have appreciated it here.'

    Thanks for pointing those out. And especially prophetic, since my upcoming Oct 2002 LM article is about using POE to do that exact problem again, in a much simpler way.
