in reply to Plugins: any advice or docs?

I would start with Plugin::Tiny and also take an elevated view of known plugin systems like DBI and Template (Template::Plugin). I myself would like to incorporate such a plugin system and replace my "preset" modules inside Spreadsheet::HTML. This would allow others to publish their own CPAN modules without needing to submit patches/pull requests to me. This is what i feel a plugin system is for: allowing external code to be attached to your own, to flow through your code (be it an engine or framework) without changing that codebase.

      You must have missed that the OP already listed that module. Why repeat what they already knew? Offer new information, not rhetrolical questions.

        I did NOT know that it was a core module. I did not think the other anonymonk's question was rhetorical, either. I'd like to know the pros and cons of any relevant module, core or not.
