in reply to Why Oh Why oh Whyoh (Catalyst Woahs)

I've been using Catalyst extensively for the last couple of weeks for a hobby project. And it's brilliant, once you get your head around the division of data, code and presentation.

The tutorial is very good but as you mentioned, the man pages for the rest is definitively WIP. It would help if the POD would also explain when en how to use a module, instead of just repeating the module name without the colons and listing it's interface. The name 'Catalyst' is also a bit unfortunate, Google will hit you with Cisco pages if you are not very specific.

However, the code in most cases is brilliantly simple, or rather, it's structured that way (there is a lot of deep magic going on, but due to the extreme modularisation you can understand it bit by bit). I find myself skipping the POD more and more in favour of the code.

This being a hobby project, it's main target is having fun, with a working web application as a (possibly) useful outcome. And I must say, it's successful in a major way on both points.

(Now, who are these people in my house again? Oh, my family. Must get some sleep :-) )
