It's true about "use", but "require" doesn't. And that could be the ticket for making modulinos less weird on the command line


modulinos are golf, which is a game, a gimmick, and not a feature to be used for work,

so say no modulinos , an evil gimmick )

If a user can be bothered to create a  symlink. I.e., /bin/something -> path_to_pm

Then the user can be bothered to create

cat>/bin/something use TheModule; TheModule::BinSomething( @ARGV );

Its literally no effort at all to accomplish, esp if bin/something is created by the module installation software

The only thing modulinos can accomplish is to substitute 1 symlink for 1 regular file -- what a ridiculous goal to write extra code for

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:

  • 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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
