This distribution is dangerous. If used, then it installs itself as the default XML::SAX parser without actually being able to handle SAX events. See the bug report and discussion on rt.cpan.org/Public/Bug/Display.html?i...
While I share Adam's ranting about SMTP being the only protocol for sending testers reports, I don't see why this should result in a low rating for Test::Reporter. This module does exactly what it should: sending testers reports over the only channel the current CPAN infrastructure provides, and it seems to do it well, looking at the tens of thousand reports at www.nntp.perl.org/group/perl.cpan.tes...
It seems to me that the author of previous rating did not understand the purpose of the module (being just the inverse of perl's localtime() function) and how to use it (like localtime, timelocal uses 0..11 as month range).
EDIT: As of 1.10, unicode support is available.
mysqldiff, the command line tool in the MySQL::Diff distribution, is a very handy tool for upgrading databases to new schemas without losing content and without hassle with ALTER, CREATE and DROP statements. The only downside is that the documentation is somewhat sparse (no Pod, just a reference to the web site).
With Tk::ObjEditor I am able to get a MLDBM editor with just a oneliner (well, nearly):
perl -MTk -MTk::ObjEditor -MMLDBM=DB_File,Storable -e 'tie %db, "MLDBM", "foo.mldbm" or die $!; %x = %db; tkinit->ObjEditor(caller => \%x, direct => 1)->pack;MainLoop; %db = %x'
Much better and more "perl-ish" than the rename command which comes with the util-linux package.
Author has abondened this module.
