in reply to Modules that significantly contribute to Laziness

This depends on how you set up your application, but when I have a web-based application with a database backend, I often use Data::Table for maximum laziness. After performing a database query, you can filter, sort, reformat, etc. and then print the resulting data as an HTML table. There are plenty of options for formatting the HTML table nicely.

A lazy example (based on the module's documentation):

use Data::Table; use DBI; my $dbh= DBI->connect("DBI:mysql:test", "test", "") or die $DBI::errstr; my $minAge = 10; my $t = Data::Table::fromSQL ( $dbh, "select * from mytable where age >= ?", [$minAge], ); # Print out an HTML Table. print $t->html;
