Are you kidding? Coming up with a new module is cool, not embarrassing. I have the feeeling that this may be very useful to many Perl people everywhere, not just the perlmonks- be sure to submit this to CPAN. If your code does have bugs, you'll might get alot of feedback by email. That's great! This promotes the evolution of your code and great improvements. If everyone kept their code under the roof just because he/she thought it had bugs, we wouldn't have CPAN, the wonderful MySQL dbengine, or Linux (not mentioning perlmonks)! In short, you shouldn't be apologizing- you should be bragging about your cool new module that you submitted to CPAN! Have fun dude! NIfty mod! Congrats! Anyone that does "flame" has obviously never contibuted anything to the world of GPL.
