in thread The App:: namespace? Sharing a webapp on CPAN

Where do you think is a good place for fairly short scripts (as opposed to large "apps" that might merit their own google-code/freshmeat/whatever)?

    Most scripts can benefit from putting the functionality within a module. In that case, you're distributing the module and the script comes along with it. cpan, pod2html, and many others most people take for granted fall into this category.

    Benefits include:

    • Easier to test because you're testing a module
    • Easier to reuse in many scripts
    • Easier to subclass for other people

    My criteria for good software:
    1. Does it work?
    2. Can someone else come in, make a change, and be reasonably certain no bugs were introduced?

    If scripts are too small for sourceforge, it's probably a quick hack to perform task X. Cool Uses For Perl looks like a good place, or Snippets.
