( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??

I've been planning on doing so for a long time; but whenever I think about doing so, the same problems crop up.

What to call it?

I refuse to add anything to the Thread::* namespace as it is so overpopulated with broken and useless modules.

If I uploaded it to the threads::* namespace I'd almost certainly get nasty emails for using an all lower case element in the name, just like I did when I uploaded my very first module as used.pm.

And then there is the problem of dealing with all the cpan tester failure reports that'll come because it doesn't work on non-threaded builds. (Just like the 75% failure rate that gets shown for Win32::Fmode because it doesn't compile on Linux boxes!).

And then I'd have to figure out the names and locations of all those other files that a cpan distribution must have despite that perl doesn't use them and nobody ever reads them. (And what meaningless drivel to put in them; except for those that have to be empty.)

At this point I usually think to myself: "I'll just point people at that node; it's one text file; stick it in the right place and it just works!"; and move on to something else.


With the rise and rise of 'Social' network sites: 'Computers are making people easier to use everyday'
Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
"Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
