lvalues = more homework.
Multiple lines returned... - The norm with NT cmdline tools it seems. I'm sure I can code to cope with that.
Quota - Sound really interesting, must go and have a look at that!
CPAN - Doesn't strike me as very Win32 or PPM friendly. As an Win32 dumbo I probably 'scrape' more often that I have to but it saves on dissapointment.

    As for me, I look to CPAN first. If there is something there, chances are that
    • The author put some time in to it (so why should I duplicate his effort, wasting both my time and his)
    • The author put some thought in to it (probably more that I would "hand rolling" a solution)
    • The code is peer reviewed, meaning that gotchas have a better chance to be caught.

    It's always worth checking PPM for the CPAN modules you want - usually there's a PPM version for the less obscure ones.

    Alternatively, some of the monks have their own PPM repositories which further extends the possibilities, see this thread for info.
