in reply to Is Perl on the Raspberry Pi worth it?

I've been busy lately but have used bits and pieces of RPi::WiringPi in several projects. The most public would be RPi::UnicornHatHD which I wrote to scroll position and quote data on a Pi 3 running a basic trading algo. I have a few other unpolished projects... most of those are Perl replacements for the Python based wrappers Pimoroni provides with their other HATs.

    That's awesome!

    I ordered a couple of them for myself. One to play with, the other I'm going to write some tests for after connecting it to my test platform.

    After going through the code, your module uses WiringPi::API, but your cpanfile lists RPi::WiringPi. The latter requires the former, and since I don't see any usage of RPi::WiringPi anywhere in the code, might I recommend that you change your prereq to WiringPi::API instead? The installation of your distribution will go *much* faster if you do this.

    RPi::WiringPi installs a whole slew of sensor, ICs and other peripheral distributions (Perl and XS) that takes quite some time. If you're not using any of the functionality of this encompassing distribution, it's best if you don't require it.
