in thread Automate perltidy for PM code?

Yes, thanks for that CPAN link. One thing I notice with a wry smile is that when you cut and pasted my hand-written effort you lost the original tabbing on the repaste, this being a perfect example of the kind of problem I am talking about and one that happened to be in my mind when I wrote the OP! That's the second time within a week I notice that replies to the OP serve themselves as entirely accidental examples of what the OP is talking about - - spooky! Even more spooky when you consider that both cases were your replies to my OPs - hmmm what does that mean?

^M Free your mind!

    It means I got my eye on you Moron! Just kidding. For this thread, I did purposefully delete your leading spaces just to show that Perl::Tidy does the job - if I left the code alone, I believe the output from perltidy would have been identical to your original code. As for Forthcoming attraction - "Positive fast, negative slow"? ... well lets just say my attempts at sarcasm and humor did not go over well - I knew I should've said "I can't get past the first paragraph ... so I downvoted."

[Corion]: usemodperl: If your "audience" runs old, locked-down computers that can connect to the outside world, they shouldn't install random stuff from CPAN. Especially, as many modules on CPAN don't work with 5.005_004 anymore.
[usemodperl]: downloading modules is wrong? oh dear...
[usemodperl]: just answer my question without judging me or my technique, if that's possible around here anymore, sheesh
[Corion]: usemodperl: You should be well aware of the ways to make your approach still work, even if it is to set up your own proxy that strips HTTPS. It shouldn't be hard for somebody with your acumen.
[Corion]: Unless you just want to vent your frustration about how others don't provide for your whims. That's sometimes necessary. There, there.
[usemodperl]: so to answer my question, no http at cpan, and all rationalized too, thanks
[marto]: this 'safe space' thing you have going on seems just like wanting to whine without anyone replying
[Corion]: usemodperl: Naah, if you scroll back, you'll find several approaches that still work. Maybe a prewrapped solution like CPAN::Mini is what you want. Or maybe App::FatPacker. But you don't seem to want to listen. That's OK.
[Corion]: There, there. It'll all be better.
[marto]: usemodperl "so to answer my question, no http at cpan," doesn't tie up with what you said "I can find cpan mirrors on http"

    Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
