    Pardon my nitpicking (long-time reader, first-time poster and all that...) but there's a bug in today's calendar:

        package Flintstone::Fred;
        use base qw(Flintstone Fred);

    Should be

        package Flintstone::Fred;
        use base qw(Flintstone Person);

    if the comments following it are correct.

    Love your work. Keep it up!
    • Incidentally... I thought you might like to know that I was so taken with an earlier entry (about Template::Extract) that when I discovered it's not available for Windows and ActiveState Perl, I installed Linux (on a VMWare virtual machine) just so I could use it...
      • Template::Extract is a pure Perl module. This means that you should be able to install it by the normal:
        perl Makefile.PL
        nmake test
        nmake install
        As long as you have the prerequisits installed (which is the Template Toolkit, which the ppms for are here [])

        It's a shame that Template::Extract doesn't have a Build.PL created for it, as then you could download the Module::Build ppm from activestate and use that instead of nmake. I shall email Autrijus about it.

    • Indeed, that was a major braino.

      Fixed now (well actually, fixed at 11amGMT).
