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

Well, that sentence was mostly a disclaimer, because sometimes you find these great modules that turn out to be not so great once you try them in anger. I havenít had such problems with DBIx::Simple Ė it turned out to be just as nice to use as expected.

There is just one monkeypatch in my code that Iíd like to see as part of the module itself:

sub DBIx::Simple::Result::hash_array { scalar shift->hashes( @_ ) }

This isnít for any fault of DBIx::Simpleís, itís just because of the fact that method calls in Template Toolkit are always in list context. DBIx::Class added a scalar-context-only variant of its search method called search_rs to deal with the same problem.

Makeshifts last the longest.
