This is a useful module, which made much better some of my applications with access to SQL databases. Not mixing SQL and Perl enhances maintenance and evolution. Clean and nice. The rationale is described at the article www.perl.com/pub/a/2002/10/22/phraseb...
Sometimes this module tries to do too much wrt support for debugging and logging capabilities. I think investment in alternates book layouts would be more profitable.
Actually, Class::Phrasebook is being superseded by the new Barbie's Data::Phrasebook which supports INI and YAML formats and more in addition to XML. But this module has many strong points, like phrase interpolation, support for SQL specials, and is so easy to use.
