  • All the other Tiny modules outline the cases that they CAN be used for.

    For example, YAML::Tiny is intended to handle META.yml and typical simple config files.

    Second, you fail the criteria for ::Tiny suffixes in that aren't backwards compatible. You fail again because you have dependencies.

    Thirdly, why don't you take patches to add features?

    Fourthly, it's not about the kilobytes of disk, it's about the multimegabytes of ram. People can and have used simple regex miniparser instead of the full PPI module, and correctly so.

    Finally, I do get your point. I haven't actually tried XML::Tiny myself, only helped make sure he meets the criteria I set for ::Tiny modules. But I see patches coming in for XML::Tiny to add missing features, so who knows how complete it will get.

    • ... the criteria I set for ::Tiny modules.

      I consider the other half of the distribution name more important, actually.

      • Fortunately, perfectly suitable modules already exist for people that care about the other half.
