Item Description: it displays trees of data.often known as HList

Review Synopsis:

Disclaimer: this review is preliminary.and will be extended once I will get the hang of that much needed module.

I don't know other HList CGI support. so this module is most welcome.

At first look the API is very clean. Keep It Simple.
flame bait: KIS is too rare in the Perl world that delights too often on uneeded diversity and complexity, opening the road to languages that suffer the oposite shortcoming: lacking versatility.

But I immediately ran into a major disappointment, the bundled demo was easily installed but failed to perform correctly on browsers other than Internet Explorer. CGI::explorer due to the use of proprietary tags. The module author is aware of it and will fix that.

    nice alternative is here puts all the work out in the browser using javascript (cross browser) A simple cgi script can be written to output a handful of javascript library calls & then the treeview classes render the tree in the browser.
