in thread That screwdriver looks like a hammer...

I think it would be worthwhile to change the name (before it spreads too far) -- for most people with anything close to a current understanding of software, an initial "J" in an app name tends to imply "written in java" (which, for me at least, would tend to steer me away from looking any closer at the app, unless I really had to).

If I had seen the name first, then learned that it was written in Perl, I think I'd be disoriented for a little while...

    The original was written just before the Java craze really took hold, or I might have named it differently. Maybe not, since I'm still named 'Justin', and everyone here knows exactly what the 'J' means. :-)

    But when I post descriptions/requirements, I do make sure to mention Perl and certain required modules (esp. Net-SNMP's Perl module - easily confused with Net::SNMP, which is different!).
