in reply to Re^2: Unit Testing in Perl
in thread Unit Testing in Perl

I agree wholeheartedly. I first learned Perl and love the core language but found TIMTOWTDI to be a real curse when weighing up CPAN's dizzying array of options. I think this is why Perl lost so much web development mindshare to PHP. Maybe it would have helped if the Perl community had put together something like Bundle::WebDevelopment without all the MVC madness and any dependence on mod_perl which many ISPs won't touch. I wince when having to write PHP, having learned Perl first, but there's often no alternative and I put this largely down to Perl's TIMTOWTDI philosophy.
