DESCRIPTION

Whenever I do a fresh install of Perl, there are certain core modules that I install over and over again. I hate doing that so I built this bundle. Most modules, even if you don't use them, should be self-explanatory. Others are listed below.

  • aliased

    This really handy module allows you to use "short names" for long class names:

     use aliased 'Some::Ridiculously::Long::Class::Name::For::Customer';
     my $customer = Customer->new;
  • Data::Dumper::Simple

    Like Data::Dumper, but prints the variable name instead of just $VAR1, $VAR2, $VAR3 and so on. This makes debugging much easier.

  • DBD::SQLite

    If you do database work but you've never touched this module, you're missing out. No setup. No configuration. It's just there.
