in reply to Module::Build and PM_FILTER

I don't quite get it. You want to migrate away from working code because cool kids do things differently?

I could understand if EU::MM had been deprecated in favour of M::B, but it hasn't been, mostly because EU::MM does its job damn well, and M::B doesn't yet as far as I can tell (depending on your needs of course).

I guess I just prefer stability over coolness. I must have been working at a big company too long :-)

    It was somewhat tongue-in-cheek. Plus, I want to support both, not migrate from one to the other. :-)

    Being right, does not endow the right to be rude; politeness costs nothing.
    Being unknowing, is not the same as being stupid.
    Expressing a contrary opinion, whether to the individual or the group, is more often a sign of deeper thought than of cantankerous belligerence.
    Do not mistake your goals as the only goals; your opinion as the only opinion; your confidence as correctness. Saying you know better is not the same as explaining you know better.

      Why? Majority of CPAN modules are written with MakeMaker
        For the same reason that I write my modules to deliberately support Perl 5.0.0 and higher - to increase the usability of my work. The majority of CPAN modules are written with "use warnings;" and "our" ... should I follow that if I don't have to?

[Corion]: jthebarg: There is the switch keyword if you want that, but maybe a dispatch table is closer.
[Corion]: If by "case" you meant "case-insensitive ", see fc, uc and lc and perlop on the /i flag ;)
Corion waves to virtualsue
[virtualsue]: I have made a post for the first time in ... years
[marto]: hey virtualsue!
Eily thought about Neko Case first, something might be wrong with my brain's wiring
[virtualsue]: I recommended dbic-migration even though I am having trouble with it this week. It might be my fault.
[ambrus]: wow! I haven't seen you here for a long time, virtualsue
virtualsue waves back
[Eily]: it would have been 2 years in 2 weeks actually. And welcome back virtualsue :)
