in reply to What is your Perl dialect?

Dialect? Hard to say - i always try to do my job using pure perl without any addons/extra modules (except those provided with perl distribution). Sometimes it requires some 'wheel reinventing' but it's ok.
The benefit is, that when i send my code to another machine i have no doubt how it would work. The bad thing is, that this code is too much specialized and rather hard to evolve.
This way i try to achieve some kind of compromise between specialization and flexibility (further developement, improvements, etc)

BTW. Nice sig, ++ (for the node of course) :-]

Greetz, Tom.

Update:
Conclusion: if the best (or the simpliest) way to solve the problem is to use the module, then use it - that's what those modules are for ;-]
