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

Hey all,

I've signed up for the CPAN Pull Request Challenge, and for my first assignment I got Net::Amazon.

So far, I've corrected some doc issues (thanks to Amazon having a policy of changing their API without notice consistently), a bug and some other small items, but I'm looking for more.

I'd like to hear from other Monks whether they, or others they know use this module. If they do, what drawbacks do you find, and if they don't and have considered it, why it was passed over.

Essentially, I want to find real-life issues with the software, or desires that it doesn't currently perform (well, or at all). Because of its vastness, there's no way I can play around extensively.

Any real world insight into the module would be greatly appreciated.

EDIT: my comment about Amazon changing their API was based on heresay, not experience, so I retract it.

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
