Your module appears to be a source code filter operating on general purpose perl. Such things should never be released. They're evil, nasty things and cause problems for other people.
Tosh! If that were really the case, why is Perl 6 getting some seriously powerful tools for writing source filters? Source filters are hard to do well because general Perl is hard to parse, but that's a very long way from saying that they are evil and should never be released. Looking at the syntax shown in the module in question (and the performance figures claimed), I'd certainly be interested in using it in my own work.

Title:
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.
