( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

multiple + other -- most of those would influence whether or not I use it. And a few other influencing params:

  • it works for me
  • it's the only interface (or most-readily available interface) for an external library
  • using the approximate solution found in the CPAN module was easier than coding a whole exact solution by myself
  • using the premade solution had better edge-case coverage than what I came up with
  • which criteria was used depended on the exact specifications for the code being developed
  • it works on Windows with Strawberry Perl, not just on linux
    → aka "good cross-platform compatibility"
  • it works on an ancient machine with perl v5.8 (or preferably v5.6)

and though this hasn't influenced me yet, I know it does some monks:

  • it's small enough to fit on (insert favorite small embedded system with a tiny perl here)
