CPAN Time savers

[ #26101 ]

Here are the time savers for the day, that made me save *lots* of time:

Data::Dumper - My favourite debugging tool.

CGI - Ah... so many useful stuff...

WWW::Mechanize - Wonderful, simply wonderful. And it works!

XML::Simple - OK, this one could be better, but it still helped.

Anyway, these four little tools and some of their friends made it possible for me to create something that would have taken considerably more time without them.

CPAN++

  • Glad you find Mech useful. It's one of those things that really just scratches that one itch. If you make URLs like http://search.cpan.org/dist/WWW-Mechanize [cpan.org], they're much quicker to load as there's no searching to do.

      And a lovely job it does at that :-)

      One day before the deadline I had the code, a testing page and a test suite ready, when the client thought only the code was ready. Awesome :-)

      ++ for you :-)
