in reply to Announce Data-Generate module

I didnt get a single download of my module.
How do you know, since download stats aren't kept?

why do you want downloads just for the sake of downloads? you'd be much better off telling us why we would want it/how it's useful & some examples or a RFC on what it provides ..

    actually an RFC colud be useful.
    Stop with the marketing gag and lets explain why:
    what the module offers is a kind of synthetic data generation language, i.e. it is a mean to describe a set of values in a very very condensed form.

    Think about a Regex pattern that instead of filtering the matching data it actually produces it,
    i.e. for example the rule:

    [01]{2} produces the array '00' , '01' ,'10' , '11'.
    Unfortunately regex syntax cannot be used 1:1 for this purpose, so I had to define my own syntax and build de facto a kind of mini data generation language. An RFC about this language could be useful.
    Do you have a suggestion where I could put it?

      Yep, however for one thing they're not called "geek points", but Experience Points, or XP in brief. OTOH it won't last much, unless you put much effort in it. Anyway, what's more important: don't be an XP whore! (Hey, I knew it would have been useful! :-)
