in reply to Module of the Week...

What's stopping you? I'd love to see this.

Additionally, you could write a review of a module and have the author review it to make sure you understood the intent and scope. I'd love to read reviews of my modules, but many of them have design considerations that aren't necessarily always obvious at first glance. For example, DBM::Deep is meant to be concurrently accessible, but most people use it in a single-process mode so they wonder why there's all this work in there about coordination. :-)


My criteria for good software:
  1. Does it work?
  2. Can someone else come in, make a change, and be reasonably certain no bugs were introduced?

    I guess nothing is keeping me from doing it. When I put the idea out there I guess I wanted to see what other people thought and where would be a good place to put it. I am not sure Reviews was what I had in mind but I guess that would be a good place to start.

    Let me work on it this week and though something together. Thanks for the input! :)

      We can always move it if there turns out to be a better place. Though, a weekly reviews column could find a worse place than Reviews.

      Great idea ++

      and the winner would be the one with the highest XP as voted on within an allotted time frame.
