RPC - damn

[ #3055 ]
Don't you hate it when you write some program you think is really clever and then realize it's probably been done better, faster and cleaner already? And it's on CPAN?

Such is the case with the PlRPC bundle. Now, I'm not *totally* sure it can do what my program can do, but I suspect it can. Mainly I'm not sure if the server will get confused by dependencies of the module (constructor) being called by the client. I don't think so, but we only learn by doing.

Even if it *can* do what I want, at worst I re-invented the wheel a bit and added a bit more maintenance but nothing serious. Ah, well. I didn't really know what RPC even *was* when I started the thing. It was still a great learning experience and if nothing else I'll have a better understanding of what's going on behind the scenes with PlRPC than I would have before.

Interestingly, the FAQ server spit this out about a month ago:

A DCE::RPC module is being developed (but is not yet available) and will be released as part of the DCE-Perl package (available from CPAN). The rpcgen suite, available from CPAN/authors/id/JAKE/, is an RPC stub generator and includes an RPC::ONC module.

So, should is there a problem with PlRPC? Should I wait before mucking with it?
