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

Here, including my own stuff are my top 20 according to useage---

  • 0010, Carp::Assert
  • 0011, XML::Twig
  • 0012, Chess::PGN::Moves
  • 0013, Carp
  • 0013, Wild
  • 0016, Chess::PGN::Filter
  • 0016, Getopt::Std
  • 0017, Parse::RecDescent
  • 0018, File::Basename
  • 0021, DB_File
  • 0021, Pod::Usage
  • 0022, Text::Wrap
  • 0023, Getopt::Long
  • 0027, Text::DelimMatch
  • 0032, Text::CSV
  • 0039, Chess::PGN::Parse
  • 0045, Test
  • 0046, ExtUtils::MakeMaker
  • 0048, Data::Dumper
  • 0062, Chess::PGN::EPD
  • 0068, constant
  • 0223, diagnostics
  • 0223, warnings
  • 0239, strict

How do I know this? Fairly easy, go to the root of your Perl development tree on the box of your choice and append the results of 'grep -rd "^use " *.pl' to this:

#!/perl/bin/perl # # -- statistics for 'use' module name. use strict; use warnings; use diagnostics; my %module; my @list; while (<DATA>) { if (/^use\s(.*?);/) { my $what = $1; if ($what =~ /^lib/) { $module{'lib'}++; } elsif ($what =~ /^constant/) { $module{'constant'}++; } else { $module{$what}++; } } } for (keys %module) { push(@list,sprintf("%04d|%s",$module{$_},$_)); } for (sort @list) { my($howmany,$what) = split /\|/; print "$howmany, $what\n"; } __DATA__

And then run the script...

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.
