in thread Help with updating a Perl Resources sticky thread at a web developer forum?
Thanks, I've Moose on there twice (heh)... I've been rearranging the HTML page all day today, so now I have a general "Modules" section near the top which mentions both Moose separately (it's kinda killer-app-ish) and Task::Kensho for those who are so new to Perl/CPAN they need help weeding.
I will check out the other two, but other than Moose, I'm kinda wavering on mentioning other specific modules (I know I have XML::Twig in there but it may not stay). I'm more hoping to weed out the bad stuff on there and get good listings of the groups Frameworks (Gantry and Rose are big question marks! and only just found Web::Simple), Templating Libraries and SQL/Database stuff that web guys are going to be especially interested in. I'm not even sure if I want Perl_Object_Environment to stay in there (having trouble figuring out what it does exactly, didn't sound like something general enough.. correct me if I'm wrong!).
Thanks, and keep them coming.
Edit/update Partially I also wanted to kind of address some of the comments both in the thread later down "Wow thats a lot of stuff to look at. Maybe somebody could rank it as to where a newbie might start?" as well as similar questions that have been floating around the forums (people making wild claims such as that "PERL doesn't have any frameworks, use Ruby/Python/PHP"). So, also addressing that a bit.
