Reviews by Nigel Horne


BSD-Sysctl (0.11) *

Doesn't work on NetBSD or OpenBSD.

spamcupNG (0.6) *

What does this offer over the established module WWW::Mechanize::SpamCop?

Also, shouldn't this module be called App::SpamcupNG?

Geo-Coder-RandMcnally (0.01) *****

Works well.

Geo-Coder-Ovi (0.03) *****

Does what it says on the tin. Thanks so much! I'll add support in the next release of Geo::Coder::List.

Template-Reverse (0.202) ***

Nice idea, however it would be more useful if detect were to take two strings (let it to the tokenizing itself)
and if 'my $templates = $tt2->Convert($parts);' were to return

'I am [% value1 %] and [% value2 %]'
instead of

['I am [% value %] and ', ' and [% value %]']

Test-Timer (2.01) *****

Does what it says on the tin simply and well, with the added bonus of a helpful and responsive developer.

Template-Plugin-Gravatar (0.09) ****

Worked first time and flawlessly. Might be nice to include an example of how to check if the given e-mail isn't on Gravatar and action to take, but that's simple to work out.

Lingua-EN-ABC (0.06) *****

Does what it says on the tin.

String-ProgressBar (0.03) *****

Does what it says on the tin. Thanks.

CGI-IDS (1.0217) *****

Does what it says on the tin. Very useful. Would be nice to ensure it's kept up to date with any current techniques. I use it in

Test-CGI-External (0.08) *****

Does exactly what it says on the tin.

Very useful way to sanity and regression check CGI scripts.

CSS-SpriteBuilder (0.03) ****

Does what it says on the tin.

Google-API-Client (0.14) *

Google::API::OAuth2::Client has no documentation, just a list of methods.

MobileDetect (1.16) **

> because there is no such thing in perl

Seems to duplicate much of HTTP::BrowserDetect and CGI::Info.

Mail-MboxParser (0.55) *

Doesn't build and doesn't seem to be supported.
