in reply to Reinvent a broken wheel?

Maybe it's more fun, but I think it might be better real-world experience to fix code that sorta works. I'd personally rather there be one good module on the CPAN than several halfway-working modules.

That's just me, though, so do what you think best. Please write lots of tests, though, so at least your module is more maintainable.

    Hmmm, it just occured to me that maybe I could go down both paths. First I'll finish my module from scratch for my own good. Then I could approach the fellows who wrote the original and I'll have something to show them.

    $PM = "Perl Monk's";
    $MCF = "Most Clueless Friar Abbot Bishop Pontiff";
    $nysus = $PM . $MCF;
