Module Name Help!by pileofrogs (Priest)
|on Mar 28, 2006 at 01:46 UTC||Need Help??|
pileofrogs has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
As a sysadmin I have lots of little scripts that sometimes run very often and they can send me email or pages. If a script that runs every minute starts sending me pages, I can get a flood of pages, which no one likes. Instead of re-writing the boring code that keeps a script from sending too many pages, I've written a module. I've discussed it in detail here: RFC: Time Lock Module Idea?.
So, the module is written, but I'm still not happy with the name, so I turn to my venerable co-monks for assistance.
How do you sum-up "Module that helps by letting you note that you just did something and you don't want to do it again for X seconds."? Here's the contenders so far:
Step up, one and all and help me name my module!
Update : Thanks Everybody! Bartender! A round of ++ for the house!
My favorite right now is rate limit. Maybe as Limit::Rate.
