in reply to Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?

Too few options. Some more:

  • it should no matter how
  • it should, but it ain't
  • it should, but only as a drop-in replacement for cpan
  • it should because I'm the developer and p5p should cope with it, I'm done
  • it shouldn't because it kills the holy cow "backward compatibility"
  • it shouldn't because of dependencies not in core
  • it shouldn't because I'm a p5p and there's enough to do yet
  • it shouldn't because it sucks (explain how)
  • it shouldn't because "minus" is bad marketing lingo
  • other (say what?)
perl -le'print map{pack c,($-++?1:13)+ord}split//,ESEL'

    So essentially, yes or no and explain in a reply why?

      Essentially, yes. Since there's only 'yes' and 'no' and people are generally too lazy to explain why they choose either, some common arguments would help them to explain without needing to do so, and make those more specific answers countable.

      At PerlMonks, we can comment; but in e.g. political polls questions are often carefully crafted to steer away from the reasons for consent or rejection (which of course isn't your intention here). In this poll, the interesting thing is not 'if', but 'why / whynot' and what could be done about that - i.e. what is the reason with most weight for either choice.

      perl -le'print map{pack c,($-++?1:13)+ord}split//,ESEL'
