You're putting words in sundial’s post.
Correct.   Thank you.   Hence, I have nothing further to say.   Well ...

Except perhaps to reiterate this, which I have already said before:   IMHO, the CPAN library is the source of the market-strength of the Perl language system.   Without trying to split-hairs too closely or too paint with too big of a brush... “One seeks out and uses the Perl system, not [merely?] for love of the language itself, but because it gives you the use of CPAN.”   You stand on the shoulders of giants.   Every giant has fleas if you look close enough, but you’re not there for the fleas:   you’re there for the view.   Lots of things become easy and quick from way-y-y up there.   And, I hold that truth to be self-evident (to most).   Having dealt with the contributed libraries of many a language (and with malice toward none):   “there is a difference.”   You can agree with me or not; I won’t pursue it further.

My sincere thanks and compliments to all of the CPAN contributors, testers, documentation writers and other gods.   (Oddly enough, I am not among you.)
