Re: Use modules or roll your own?
in thread Use modules or roll your own?
I work in an environment where developing new code is easier than attempting to get a CPAN module installed.
Wrong. If you can write a script and run it, you can install a Perl module for use with that script. There are at least two options:
- install the module tree in the same directory with your script and use lib '.';use Module::Name;
- for pure Perl, download the module, copy and paste the relevant bits into your script (advantage of retaining appearance of single script)
