in reply to Reliable software: SOLVED (was: Reliable software OR Is CPAN the sacred cow)

For me, ANY software MUST be developed with these priorities in mind:
  1. be reliable: it should do it work correctly (ex. for email parsing task it must support all features defined in RFCs related to email format plus be able to handle non-RFC-compliant emails

POWER::Email is funny though, coming from mr. RFC-is-the-law:

"Simple (and non RFC compliant) email sending"

All code is usually tested, but rarely trusted.
