slice (1.2.8) *

A collection of ancient versions of modules not written by the alleged author of this module which clutters up CPAN search results. See also my review for cpanratings.perl.org/dist/lcwa, almost all of the comments there apply to this too.

Sorry author, I am sure that in 1998 this was a truly marvellous way to "Extract pre-defined slices from an ASCII file", although I have no idea why that task would require you to pull in modules like IO::Socket::INET, but in 2011 this is a blot on the landscape.
I suggest this whole thing should just be deleted.
