Perl Monks all over the world,

We know the power of modules, and we use modules a lot. Modules make our lifes easier, help us abstract code and they're often available from CPAN, or even included in the core distribution.

Not counting pragmata (strict and such), and not counting my own non-CPAN modules, I have my top 10 of favourite modules as follows:

  1. B::Deparse
  2. LWP::Simple
  3. IPC::Open3
  4. POE::Component::IRC
  5. DBI
  6. DBIx::Abstract
  7. POSIX
  8. Exporter
  9. Carp
  10. LWP::UserAgent

What are your favourite modules?
