Re^3: List::Compareby davorg (Chancellor)

My feeling then was that the fact that the lists being compared were real-world data sets (I can hear my boss saying, "Get me a list of ...") was more relevant to its naming than the fact that the lists were placed into arrays before being passed to the constructor.
Guess we'll just have to agree to disagree on that then. I spend a lot of time helping out on Perl beginners' forums and one of the most common errors I see is the confusion between lists and arrays. Having that confusion backed up in the name of a CPAN module doesn't really help matters.
I'm seriously considering deprecating Array::Compare in favour of Data::Compare. If I do, would you like to take over Array::Compare so you can use the name for your module?
