I help with Melbourne Perl Mongers.
I spend an awful lot of time talking about Perl, and have had my picture in the Australian newspapers with a camel. That's rather scary.
IPC::System::Simple 0.07 released
I've released version 0.07 of IPC::System::Simple, a module that makes it easy to do the right thing when calling Perl's system() command, including providing comprehensive diagnostics when things go wrong.
The new version provides better diagnostics when used with tainted data, better testing under some more exotic systems, and a few documentation tweaks. You can grab the new version from a CPAN mirror near you (once it finishes indexing), and if you like the module, you can even vote for it using CPAN ratings.
