    rubycritic...or rubytidy

    And while I'm at it, where's perls Rake? imho, it kicks Makefile.PL in the ass sometimes.

    • What's Rake? Details man, details. What are we missing exactly?

      • It's make, except in Ruby. Module::Build isn't perl's Rake because M::B is focused on modules. Rake encompasses comparable gem tasks as M::B but is also a generally useful tool, just like make, except not evil.

      • Think “DSL around Algorithm::Dependency for typical file-munging tasks” – roughly. Using the Rake Build Language [] has a bunch of examples where you can see how it looks.

        TinyMake [] could be a rendition in Perl, but I find it a bit too underengineered to be truly useful…

        I had some notes somewhere and have made a few starts at building a Rake clone, but I haven’t felt I got quite far enough with the concepts to start building something.
