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

Some reasons for not including it I can come up with:

  • It doesn't run on all platforms and/or architectures supported by the perl core, so tests will fail
  • It doesn't offer anything that cpan does not already do (enlighten me if I'm wrong. I don't mean cpanm does it faster or easier or nicer. I mean something that isn't possible with cpan and is a killer feature everyone should be using)
  • Nothing in the core depends on it, so it doesn't add to features of perl itself, only to (some) user experience
  • It is extremely easy to install after perl itself is installed (on supported systems)
  • It does not (yet) fully support distroprefs, something vital for distributors
  • It add maintenance costs and testing time
  • It might be replaced with something even better

Enjoy, Have FUN! H.Merijn

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
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.
