A very quick and easy to use way to communicate between programs.
The hostile reviews ignore issues like platform dependence.
If they can't find a bug by reading the code, maybe the underlying system calls are faulty on their computer.
The module obviously requires a fully working SysV IPC on the machine.
The criticism that it only supports scalars is not a problem if you use it with Storable as suggested in the documentation, which I have done.
If something very elaborate is required, this Lite module is not the right one to use:-)
If you want to destroy the share on exit, you may want a signal handler and to undef the share in an END subroutine.
The destroy method only takes numeric flag, unlike the destroy option.
Excellent little module. The only shortcoming this far is that it does not handle data other than scalars.
