ambs has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:


Kwiki uses a module to extract files from a PM file (using the DATA section of the file), but that module is not properly easy to use (cannon for a fly).

Is there any other I can use?

      Ok, I should have explained it better.

      I just want to have a .pm file where __DATA__ is:

      687682423AB628734FE274273894  (base64 dump)
      and in the pm code I want to do things as:
      writefile($dir, "foo.jpg");
      I know this is quite easy to do. But probably there is a module for that already.
