Zecho has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
(substitute CGI for any module with a ::Simple counterpart)
Can someone explain the differences in XXX.pm XXX::Simple etc, Say for instance, CGI.pm. Is CGI::Simple, a smaller subset of the same usage terms?
Could it be looked at as: CGI::Simple is the basic structure, with CGI.pm being the complete unabridged and expanded compilation? I know html rather well
I think (having used it for a number of years) and using CGI would seem to make some things easier for me, but I am right smack in the middle of learning perl,
and now EZDBI (for a current project). From what I have gathered, CGI::Simple is quite easy to understand and use. Am I wrong in assuming this? How
confused am I going to get trying to add another something to the list of things I'm already attempting to commit to memory? And what are the pros/cons of
CGI.pm vs. CGI::Simple ?
