Frustrations

[ #13484 ]

Grr. I've lately been working on a database-to-Web application. Originally it was incredibly redundant, with tons of cut-and-pasted code; lately I've been working hard to modularize it, with much help from my main man ziggy. This has gone fairly well but is still a lot of work because, well, there's a lot to do.

So of course seeing today's article on perl.com on this exact subject, but made easier by using TT and Class::DBI, is just making me really frustrated. I've looked at both of these before, but thought either that they'd be too hard to use, or would too obscure the close control over my code that I sort of think I want. But now I'm wondering if perhaps I should consider it.

Which will, of course, necessitate yet another big round of re-writing.

Perhaps I'll chuck it all and just finally try to teach myself C.
