10/21   Anyone know a good perl module (or other reliable method) of
        interfacing with mail spools?  Specs for spools? -jnat
        \_ you just want to read the spools, or do all the file locking
           stuff as well?
        \_ formail and procmail are pretty useful
        \_ ever considered scanning CPAN under the Mail:: namespace?

3/4     Does anybody have some code or know of a program that will take a
        network/mask and return the list of address in that CIDR block?
        e.g. "iplist 10.10.10.0/24" and return 10.10.10.0 ... 10.10.10.255
        [I have a way to do this, but it involves distributing a large
        amount of code, which is kind of a hassle. Looking for something
        lightweight and either standard or easdy to rpm/port/yum install.]

9/10    Hi.  I'm running a package based linux distro.  Should
        I install perl CPAN modules through the provided packages,
        or through sudo cpan> install modulename etc ?
        Opinions?
        \_ Depends on the package system you're using, you may have to
           deal with both.  I had an experience where I installed via

9/2     Hey motd I used to have perl w/DBI 1.42 & DBD 2.9003. After
        upgrading Perl, DBI 1.48, & DBD 3.0002_1 I'm seeing something
        really weird. The following used to work:
        $dbh=$DBI->prepare("INSERT INTO data VALUES(\?)");
        for ($i=0; $i<10; $i++) {
          if (!$dbh->execute($i)) {

8/31    Looking for an XML parser for Perl, preferably one that
        doesn't require installation (something already built in).
        If it's not already built in, I prefer something that doesn't
        require C compilation, and that I can just stick the *.pm
        to use. I'm looking for portability, not performance. Thanks.
        \_ What's wrong with using CPAN?

4/10    In perl, how do I get time precise to the milisecond? The CPAN module
        requires recompilation and root access to install it, I'm looking for
        something more portable. Thanks!
        \_ If you need to know the time, there's no portable way to do it
           without modules.  However, if you just want a sub-second delay,
           you can do it with select -- for example, select "", "", "", 0.1;

4/12    What's a good perl module (cpan) that strips off all the html
        tags and javascript crap? And perhaps be smart enough to strip
        off menus and ads? Thanks.

        users to have /usr/bin/<files> to be accessible. I thought about
        /usr/bin/<files> for generic stuff (like scripts) and
        /usr/bin/<platform>/<files> for platform specific things.

2/13    Does perl have a "diff" facility? I have something that requires a
        lot of diff but file I/O using unix diff would be too slow. Thanks.
