DBIx-Web (0.60) *

From the volume of documentation, clearly a lot of work has gone into this web/database solution. However, my first impression of the documentation that was full of details, explaining what flags like "-recDel1C" should do, while being short on overview or "marketing" documentation to draw the user in. This, combined with the missing the "Changes" file and lack of substantial tests, I'm not inclined to explore further.

The source code seems to model the verbose but cryptic documentation, making heavy use of difficult to grok arguments-by-index, like this:

length($_[1]) <$NLEN ? ($_[2]||'0') x ($_[3] ||$NLEN -length($_[1])) .$_[1] : $_[1];

Overall, I find this module inaccessible.
