Re: When is it better to NOT release a new module?

in reply to When is it better to NOT release a new module?

Actually I was pondering about the same thing...

I've written a BBCode parser, which is quite fast:
Rate BBCode::Parser HTML::BBCode Method One + Method Two BBCode::Parser 2.54/s -- -92% -98% + -99% HTML::BBCode 33.0/s 1200% -- -80% + -82% Method One 161/s 6252% 389% -- + -11% Method Two 182/s 7060% 451% 13% + --


Method One and Method Two is the same module, but the second is optimized.

Would it be worth to publish it? I'm afraid the code is not well documented at all though.

Is code runtime speed important in the case of a BBCode parser, anyway?

    What about working your routine into one of the published modules (or both) and sending the author(s) a patch? He might also decide he's lost interest in maintaining the module in the meantime and hand you the reigns.
