I recently joined the ranks of CPAN authors, but have only written one module, namely Acme::EyeDrops. I have not received much feedback on it and only one bug report, making me curious to see if anyone was actually using it. Searching with good old google revealed, to my great surprise, that it is being taught at Harvard University! Well, I don't really know what practicalperl.com is -- part of Harvard Extension School, whatever that means. Anyway, here is their homework assignment.
Homework 2 problem 5
Just follow the instructions...
You will install Acme::Eyedrops.
You will write a program, eyedrops.pl, that uses Acme::Eyedrops
to convert a program into a prettier version of a program.
1 shapes completed.
$ perl hello_world_eyedropped.pl
Interestingly, the lecturer manually added use strict to
the top of an EyeDrop'ed program, and, shock, horror, it worked!
It never occurred to me to test EyeDrops under use strict.
Oh, and it got a mention at Purdue University too, in a talk
by Dave Jacoby titled The Joy of Perl in an unfortunately
titled section: Programmers on Crack. But since it is mentioned
in the same breath as the maestro's Acme::Bleach and Coy,
I will forgive the author for the unfortunate section name.
