    Hello Bpl,

    Sounds very interesting. I must confess I know nothing about cybersecurity (among many other things ;) but I'd suggest you to put a paragraph or two about the goal of the project at the beginning of your file to explain in bricklayer words what it does. I googled Lorcon2 and found a very short entry in the wikipedia, with broken links too. lorcon repo has no useful info for a newcomer.

    > bring the world of cybersecurity into Perl, a language that now boasts very few tools (one of the few that comes to mind is Nikto), and which is still focused only both on automation and on CGI programming.

    While the intention of the sentence is appreciable and I suspect almost nothing about cybersecurity is under the CPAN sky, the paragraph does not reflect the reality: CGI stands to a modern perl programmer as Latin for an Italian. We have Mojolicious and Dancer2 and other sweeties build ontop of a new protocol named PSGI. We also have new shiny things to boast about like MCE.

    That said my warmest, if late, welcome to the monastery! And wait.. once there were dozens of Italians here: until now I was quite alone for years.. perciò benvenuto due volte!

    I will be glad to hear your progresses


    There are no rules, there are no thumbs..
    Reinvent the wheel, then learn The Wheel; may be one day you reinvent one of THE WHEELS.
      Hi and many thanks for your interest into this project, I'll think on it,
      Yeah, you're right about CGI but it was not related to the library itself, I'll correct as fast as I can.


      P.S Vedo che gli italiani non sono molto dentro il Perl, secondo te perchè?

    This is very cool, read some very interesting stuff. Now I am not sure I want to use wifi any more xD. Net::Lorcon2 exists on CPAN, but please consider getting an account at (if you don't have one) and uploading it!
      Hi Perlfan, I have already a PAUSE account but as I wrote in the documentation, the cpan version will have a different installer. If you want to help || contribute to the project let me know! Regards Edoardo Mantovani
        I'd actually be happy to help you package it up if that's what you mean. Apologies for not reading that part of the documentation. /msg me and let me know how you'd like to proceed.
