in thread Choosing the right module

I'd add the whole ACME:: namespace to the list of discouraged modules, too. Older PerlMonks will already know this, i newbie might not.

And i'd also put up a warning flag around most of the JSON:: modules. They work fine for most stuff, but can be VERY flaky when it comes to nested JSON structures in combination with Unicode/UTF8. (Why would you have nested JSON structures? Because you can, apparently)

PerlMonks XP is useless? Not anymore: XPD - Do more with your PerlMonks XP

    Good point! I've updated my response with an Acme link (for Perl users not around in Acme's heyday of the early 2000s) along with a warning:

    it is almost certainly a very silly idea to use an Acme module in production code!
