all three are true points. but:
in reply to RE: RE: AllCommerce
in thread AllCommerce
this is software designed for e-commerce site developers. there are perhaps a couple of those around here. there might even be a couple that would find this software useful. but for the vast majority of the people at this site, this post is a useless ad, for a product they will never need. this is a site to discuss Perl. this post was not discussing Perl, it was advertising its product. whether it was written in Perl or C or Fortran, it really doesn't matter too much, because its the product, and it use, which is being advertised and mentioned.
apparently this product still has a couple of bugs. the readme says that if any bugs are found, please let the company know. now, if they had asked for a couple of us to help with the debugging or test the software for them... then the post would have been about the code and would not have suffered the same fate.
yes, this post was related to Perl. but the main topic of the post was not Perl, the language, the programmers or even companies that develop in Perl. the point of this post was to advertise the product. pure and simple. thats not the kind of posts i like to see here.
sorry for the rant. no offense intended to anyone. i'm just not a big fan of advertisement.
