LWPx-ParanoidAgent (1.07) *****

Big Part of my Test Suite

I use the package as part of my test suite for moving web servers to a new machine (or datacenter). My scripts create and restart the DNS entries as part of the move process for currently running sites. Since I haven't (yet), moved the current DNS to point to the new area before testing, I can use LWPx::ParanoidAgent to have it read from my local DNS server (and not the one in the wild) allowing me to test my changes before going live.

my $ua = LWPx::ParanoidAgent->new;
$ua->resolver(Net::DNS::Resolver->new(nameservers => ['']));

I don't know if this will help anyone else... but I love it! thanks!

Config-Tiny (2.00) *****

This is a great little configuration package. Simple to use, quick and easy... Love it!

Class-DBI (0.94) *****

Enough can not be said about how simple the debugging becomes when you use this module. I use this module to create almost all of my web-based DBI projects now. Thanks Tony!

Data-SearchReplace (1.01) *****

Useful for template generation and manipluation. I needed to change the output of my data to encode all the URLs. The problem was that the URLs were in a complex data variable so I used the command:

sr({REGEX=>s/([^a-zA-Z0-9.-])/uc sprintf("%%%02x",ord($1))/eg},$data);

and I was good to go...
