This is just an informative note that we have incorporated this module into the base Business::OnlinePayment::AuthorizeNet distribution, as of version 3.22.
I'd just like to point out Michael Czeiszperger's review is talking about the CyberSource company/service itself, not about the code of this module which interfaces with them.
I have no opinion on Cybersource the company/service, but if you find yourself needing to integrate with them, this is the module for it, and it is written well. :)
2012 addenum to my original review from 2008: Kudos to Caleb Cushing for taking over maintenance of the module and updating it for modern standards.
No documentation. Appears to share an interface with HTML::GoogleMaps, but digging a bit reveals only the onload_render, center, add_polyline and load_kml methods are implemented. add_marker is, sadly, unimplemented.
Made me waste time because it declares a completely bogus dependency on the obsolete Geo::Google, but actually depends on Geo::Coder::Google.
Still, the only thing on CPAN among the dozen obsolete Google Maps modules which is a starting point at talking to the V3 API, and it is a 0.01 version, so in the spirit of "release early", two stars overall for now. Hopefully more features in future versions, or perhaps incorporation into HTML::GoogleMaps.
Perl has a standard interface for payment gateways: Business::OnlinePayment. This module (presumably, there is no documentation) implements its own one-off interface instead. It is the equivalent of a database access module that isn't a DBD::
This module was good in its day, but it has not been updated in five years. These days you may want Net::SMTP::TLS::ButMaintained.
Have used this module for years; it has always worked well for me in providing basic approximate matching capabilities.
The other review seems a bit harsh. The module gets the job done, is maintained, has decent documentation and a test suite. The guts may not be pristine and not every single function may be UTF-8 clean, but I've seen a lot worse.
Plus it isn't like there are any alternatives for approximate matching modules, so go ahead and use it, it won't hurt.
Email::Sender is the future. Stop looking at the proliferation of mail modules on CPAN and use this one!
I'm extremely happy to have replaced my half-baked email sending code with Email::Sender.
Really slick how it lets you pass plaintext or any object Email::Abstract can understand; it allowed me to wedge this into my existing code.
Despite the minimal documentation, it covered everything I needed.
Has options when you need them.
Easy to integrate with legacy code due to use of Email::Abstract.
Email::Sender::Transport::SMTP::TLS is packaged separately.
Not in Debian 5.0 (but will be in 6!)
Not yet a core module (but it should be!)
Perfectly meets all our SFTP-ing needs. Well documented, good interface including a Net::SFTP compatibility mode, actively maintained. Preferable in most environments to Net::SFTP (and the documentation even includes a section on pros and cons!).
Do not use this module for new projects!
Normally it is bad practice to rate your own module, but in this case I think it is acceptable. :)
An invaluable module that has saved me countless hours of time. Perl really should incorporate ordered hashes natively, but until then, this module saves the day.
A well-documented, easy to use module that provides modern access to whois data. It even web-scrapes from the registrars that don't offer proper whois service.
Fundamental changes in the distributed whois system have rendered this module obsolete.
See Net::Whois::Raw for something useful currently.
An invaluable module that I have used for years. As a previous reviewer suggested, it can be more useful to populate a data store than loaded in a running application, though 2MB isn't really much these days.
The only reason I cannot yet rate it 5 stars is the module does not yet supply UTF-8 encoded data. Hopefully the patch in RT#38559 can be applied soon.
Pros: A complete swiss-army knife for managing password strings. I maintain a large project which requires the ability to authenticate all sorts of passwords, DES crypt, MD5, Blowfish, LDAP encodings, this module does it all.
Cons: A twisty maze of odd dependencies, all alike.
Unlike previous versions, the new 0.04 release is an interoperable Business::OnlinePayment module, implementing the common interface. Bravo!
