in reply to When should a wheel be reinvented

It's a good question... sometimes wheels do have to be reinvented. For the record, I've vented on the interface to File::Find a few times before.

That being said, people probably spend too much time reinventing the wheel. This isn't so bad if you're only doing it for practice... but CPAN is pretty cluttered with lots of modules that all do largely the same thing. It's probably only worthwhile releasing it to the community if it adds some significant value over what was there before.
