Here they are (there are more than 10, but that's why Perl is great: tons of super-useful modules):

Modules that make Perl what it is:

  • CGI (+ CGI::Carp), I am an old school guy (but I use it with mod_perl when it makes sense though),
  • DBI (+ DBD::mysql, DBD::Pg, DBD::SQLite), SQLite for quick hacks and when there is only one user, Pg most of the time,

Very useful:

Convenient modules I use a lot these days:

  • Memoize, especially to memoize the output of the following one,
  • Digest::MD5, to sort through heaps of archived data and figure out what was stored twice under different names

XML modules:

  • XML::Twig, surprise surprise ;--)
  • XML::Simple, battles with YAML for my configuration storage needs,
  • XML::PYX, for one-liners,
  • XML::LibXML, when I manage to get it installed, which is not that often

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
