Infected by the WWW::* virus ...

[ #8432 ]

I read a post on use.perl.org about WWW::Gazetteer and thought it was a pretty slick idea.

Then I remembered I wrote a Palm app that allows me to grab program listings from a site that hosts tvguides (note: I don't want to speak about this anymore) and store them on my Palm. Off course, the grabbing is done with Perl and the harvester runs in a nice Perl/Tk app.

Anyway ... with all those nice packages in the WWW::* namespaces I felt I also had to contribute. I CPANified the web mining part of channel0 and put it on the CPAN under *** completely gone ****

Aha ... and now my daily job involves java development also, I can say java is a laborous language to develop in. Why do I need to write all the getters and setters? Please give me AUTOLOAD functionality or a Class::MethodMaker equivalent! And what about HERE docs?

Anyway ... a good read why a certain person prefers Perl before java can save the day!
