  • Give me the next business day
    Well, actually, you happen to pick one of the harder problems just then. You can state the problem easily, but then you have to answer a lot of questions:
    • What business?
    • What part of the world?
    • What exceptions?
    So, while it seems easy at first, it's one of the more difficult issues.

    • Exactly, I realize it's nontrivial; that's why I went to find a module rather than roll my own. My point was that the interface and documentation were so complicated that the modules ended up not being of any help. As a contrasting example, CGI parameter parsing can be tricky, but CGI.pm packages up the difficulty for you, giving you a simple interface. That's not the case here.
