  • 400 of them are. And there seems to be lots of other commands that perl would import from modules.

    Are there any good points about this name space "pollulolation?"

    • Sure, isn't the good point obvious? You don't need to learn or install any modules. Think of every time you've heard a Perl programmer complain, "Ugh, more dependencies!" Never again!

      Unfortunately, imagine, now, that every module you use was in core. Also, not dual-lived and on CPAN. Also, not even in a file you could patch on the fly once installed. Now if there's a bug, you have to upgrade Perl itself. Oh, and maybe that introduces bugs in other core places.

      Whoops!
