  • When I wrote Object::Tiny, I didn't bother to write a comparison to Moose because I saw them as being in a completely different ballpark.

    So then Moose::Tiny shows and I of course assume it's a joke by some random person unrelated to Moose itself.
    Well, your 1/2 right. It is a joke, but the author is heavily involved in the Moose community.

    A little annoyed that they are taking some liberties with the ::Tiny suffix, ... [snipped other stuff about reviews and such]
    You see, this is the joke we are trying to make (and with which my review is taking said joke one step further). While I understand the idea of your ::Tiny modules, I think it is a little excessive that you feel the need to "officiate" and judge all other ::Tiny modules which are uploaded to the CPAN. It is just rude to step on first level namespaces, and most CPAN authors respect this. But a second level namespace (under my first level namespace) is my own, and should not need to stand up to your criteria.

    BUT, if the Moose people do indeed feel that they want to be included in a comparison, well fair enough.

    So, how does Moose::Tiny compare to Object::Tiny?

    ... [ snipped unflattering comparions ] ...

    First of all, have you ever seen a Moose? They are not tiny creatures at all. A full grown moose can grow to be over 3 metres (8 to 10 ft.) in length and a shoulder height of over 2 metres (5 to 7 ft.). The males can weigh 600 kg. (over 1200 pounds) and have antlers anywhere from 120 to 150 cm. across (4 to 5 ft.). So while 4.5 megs of memory may seem large to you, when you compare that against a half-ton animal which smells more horrible than you can possibly imagine, it's not all that much :)

    So you see, (at least in IMO) the whole joke of Moose::Tiny is that ...

    size is relative.

    • If it takes that long to explain it the joke probably isn't that funny.


    • See, I originally thought it was a joke because it was an oxymoron...

      And I got confused with that versus the joke of trying to apply standards for suffixes.
