Modules I've found helpful: IPC::Run3, File::HomeDir, ExtUtils::Command, Probe::Perl ...

At the very least people need to read the POD for each module, study the APIs and rationales

what is said;
know as much as you can about the total context of the speaker's
participation in a forum over time, before deciding that you fully
comprehend the intention behind those words. If in doubt, ask
for clarification before you 'flame'.
