in reply to Including code without packaging?

I could be slightly annoying and point out Config::IniFiles already exists. Then again, "rolling your own" can frequently be fun.

As to your exact question, I would make a package anyway. It only adds a few lines to the file and I can almost promise you this code will grow. More functions will be added, maybe some different variables to control how errors are handled, etc. If you start with a package now, it will save you some hassle later.

Of course, ymmv

    When I check cpan for this I can only access the README, the module gives a "Not Found". Is this a CPAN problem or has the module been removed?
      Go here and click on the Latest Release link. That worked for me

    I agree with your viewpoint..I personally have a module named MyUtilities where i just stuff algos i use over and over. One day a REAL module may just spontaneously jump out of it. Meanwhile i use it just like a junk drawer for code... :)
