"Have you ever known pearls to grow when planted in a field?" was the reply.
"Have you ever known wheat to grow when planted in an oyster?" countered Con Wei. Then he struck the Master four times with his staff, chanting: "Read. The. Farming. Manual."

At this, the Master was enlightened.

    Thank you. This really made my day. "Read. The. Farming. Manual." has now entered the lexicon as a valid translation of RTFM.

    By the way, I think I hurt myself rolling around on the floor laughing. Where do I send the doctors bill? ;-)

[Corion]: Discipulus: I think Module::Corelist ( or corelist ) can tell you that
[Corion]: Meh - Module::CoreList
[choroba]: Just use List::Util 1.29
[choroba]: Be kind to people using old Perl with newer version of the module
[Corion]: But why not simply specify 'List::Util' => 1.29 in your prerequisites? People might install a more recent version of the module into their Perl
[Corion]: (what choroba said)
[Discipulus]: ah! simpler and cleaner
[Discipulus]: thanks! use List::Util 1.29 qw(pairmap ... just works!
Discipulus is preparing another of his CUFP..
