Weed (0.0084) *

No documentation (apart from the useless one), code after __END__, no apparent purpose, a warning to not use the distribution... What is this thing doing on CPAN, anyway? How would I even use it, if I wanted to? It just seems to be a personal project of someone who is trying some new things, which is OK, but I can't see a reason for it to be on CPAN, if we take into consideration that the lack of documentation makes it pretty hard for anyone to help the author.

Also, the distribution is lacking important things, like a README or a Changes file. And did I mention the (more then) daily releases with diffs that are just to huge to follow and that CPAN doesn't even manage to display?

And the thing that scares me the most? Probably the fact that the current development release includes a 20M mp3. Or maybe the fact that the small bit of documentation in the main module includes something like this:

=head1 EXPORTS

=head2 NO

Is not YES.

=head2 YES

Is not NO.

What the hell is that supposed to mean?

Also, I don't understand why the author seems to be Hon Weijun in one place and Holger Seelig in another...

And the saddest thing is that I could go on and on about this...

This is something I wouldn't even place in the Acme namespace...

Please, document it properly so people can understand it or remove it.

No description of what this package is supposed to do. Documentation is non-existent. Often multiple releases in a single day, and no change log. File this under "totally useless" until advised otherwise.

HOOO BOY

What is the point of this module, other than providing for good laughs like:

use Weed; # hahah

and

no Weed; # hahah

?
