good chemistry is complicated,
and a little bit messy -LW
"not perl" is very much a gray area.
As an example, consider my Re: stdout/err redirection, my recent post. It indirectly suggests that a perl wrapper may not be the best solution to do redirection. It is about a tool that I feel a good complement to perl: socat. So does this node should be removed because it is "not perl"? I posted it because I consider it of genuine value even in the perlmonks forum. Nevertheless, as a form of politness, I state clearly from the start that this is not a perl solution so people have information to skip my post if uninterested.
