in reply to Favourite modules March 2002

Here are a few that have really saved my life:

  • CGI - I assume this and DBI need no introduction? :)
  • DBI
  • Storable - Really handy when you need to serialize data (in a db or otherwise). Take a look at it next time you need to store data in a weird format.
  • IO::Socket - Indispensible if you are doing any sort of socket stuff.
  • Net::Shared - Shameless plug time :) I really hate IPC::Shareable, so I created this module. Its still under development, but next time you need to use shared memory, give it look; its much more stable than its counterpart.
  • LWP - huge time saver.
  • File::Find - another huge time saver.
  • Apache::Session - a module that makes it much easier to implement sessions. Takes care of most issues for you automatically after its set up.
  • Mail::Mailer - My favorite mail sending module.
  • HTML::TokeParser - My preferred way to parse HTML.
