in reply to Regrettable module names

This one's not my own, but (sorry Schwern):
It's a subclass of DBI that gives it a few extra methods, and it's widely deployed now thanks to the popularity of Class::DBI.

Hello, I'm a DBI.

    Totally agree. Should have been I'm::a::DBI :)

    Examine what is said, not who speaks.

      Quite right, since "Ima" means "Mother" in Hebrew (well, okay, Aramaic, but let's not get carried away), and I don't think it's supposed to be the mother of all DBI modules...


      That'll work great until you use some syntax-highlighting editor that mistakes it for a quoted string :)

      You++ anyway, for finding an almost-good use of the single-quote package seperator.

      send money to your kernel via the boot loader.. This and more wisdom available from Markov Hardburn.

        Don't forget about another great use of the apostrophe namespace separator.
        ------------ :Wq Not an editor command: Wq
        This already happens whenever I use `, #, ", and ' in regexps. What editor are you using that it correctly parses perl? Both the cperl-perl and perl-perl major modes of emacs get this sort of stuff wrong all the time.
