in thread What makes a contributor to Perl?

It seems that you're taking my post as somehow related to your thread (Rewards of Service). It's not. I've never read that thread until just now. I'm sorry for the inadvertant confusion.

You say "it only when others tell us that we have made a contribution that we can be sure we have indeed served," and that's what I'm asking you to do: To tell us who you see as being contributors.

xoxo,
Andy

    Sorry; I misread your post; you appeared to seek an objective standard. You want specific instances. You did not intend to relate your post to mine; they merely approach the same question from different directions.

    Um, anyone can throw together a list of stuff he likes somewhat. My vote for top Perler is Michael Schwern; for top contribution, Test::Simple. I consider Test::More the most important module extant. And yes, I've sent him fan mail.

      What do you use Test::Simple and Test::More for?

        Test::More is a module included in the Test::Simple distribution. A detailed explanation of it would not be appropriate here; I'll just say that it is the basic Perl testing module. If you're new to software testing, I cannot too highly recommend that you study up on the topic.
