Some people, when they have a problem, say "I'll solve it with a CPAN module". Now they have a whole dependency tree of possible problems.

I just looked at a bunch of PHP PEAR (not perl) modules for adding SMPP support, and the advantage of looking at several other peoples actual working code is I have a far better understanding than just staring at the spec. And I may end up with my own.. or use one of the others, not sure yet.
CPAN seems to have pretty good control, but the perl developers often seem to have different mixes of other CPAN modules than I can usually recreate without some poking and proding around. Seems to be some obscure thing is always needed.
Yeah, this particular bug actually ended up being a MySQL bug, but the "is it this module? That module?" was instructive.
We will not edit your comments. However, we may delete your comments, or cause them to be hidden behind another link, if we feel they detract from the conversation. Commercial plugs are fine, if they are relevant to the conversation, and if you don't try to pretend to be a consumer. Annoying endorsements will be deleted if you're lucky, if you're not a whole bunch of people smarter and more articulate than you will ridicule you, and we will leave such ridicule in place.
