in reply to MIME::Lite - For outging mail with attachments

Although I admire trs80 for trying, this wasn't really a review. More information is available in the POD.

It might have been nice to show a variety of MIME-related tasks that the module makes easier. Even some factual information that would back up generic claims like "long feature list" and "mature" would help.

If the module and its documentation are self-explanatory, and nothing can be added, there's probably no need for a review. :-)

    Thanks Impossible Robot!
    I went back over my initial post and I am modifing it to
    include some of your suggestions.

    I think some people might look only under Mail instead of MIME,
    if they have a limited knowledge of the actual protocol
    involved. So I was hoping a short plug for what this module
    does without all the noise of the documentation might be

    Any other suggestions?

    Well ... not really. The fact that someone took the time to review the module and write about it here means that the module is (most probably) worth looking at. Plus it may help people find the module. MIME::Lite is a great example of this. Who would consider looking under MIME if all he wants is to send a mail with attachments?


    P.S.: It's a shame noone wrote a review of MIME::Lite's rival, Mail::Sender. :-(
    I can't do that myself, can I? ;-)

      this wasn't really a review

    Maybe it would be better to call it a quickstart tutorial or something.   Even if it doesn't fit perfectly in any category, it will be useful to find in a SuperSearch on MIME.

    (And, yes, trs80 a longer title along the lines of "MIME::Lite (for mail attachments)" might help those most in need find it most easily.)
