    My initial post (and most comments) was deliberately designed as rant, because I've feeling I need much more than usual 3-5 comments to find answer. I'm sorry about this, but it's worked! :)

    I don't know about the rest of the Monks here, but for myself? I respect those who respect me. And ranting on here, during my time, to "get a rise"? To get a "full answer". That's not respecting the other people on here. Especially as I take time from my actual job to answer questions on here, many times.

    If you had asked for help in a respectful manner, you would have received a ton of replies that would have pointed you to source after source. If you had chosen the path of asking honest questions, rather than posturing, you would have received honest and detailed answers that would have not only enlightened you, but saved you time and energy.

    I'm going to save my reply to your questions to me for another day, perhaps. I'll close this by passing on something I keep in my Personal Nodelet, Spirit of the Monastery. I can only recommend a reading, and pondering, of it's words, as I do, from time to time, before posting.

    My initial post was very incorrectly formulated, but that's because to formulate question correctly you need to know at least half of answer, which I did't know at that time.

    You've answered your own question why people put unreliable and not-secured code in CPAN: because to formulate something correctly you need to know at least half of answer, which you did not know at that time. People put code in CPAN for different reason and different purpose and different contexts. Therefore their priorities are different, while in your case, it's reliability and security.

    My initial post (and most comments) was deliberately designed as rant, because I've feeling I need much more than usual 3-5 comments to find answer. I'm sorry about this, but it's worked! :)

    You've just made a very bad reputation of yourself by doing this. There are a lot nicer ways of getting a lot of comments from fellow monks than what you've done here. Social skill is a lot more important than programming skill when you are in a community, online or not.
