RFC: Providing An Alternative to File-Find in the Perl 5 Core?
Message ID:
Hi all!

Please read (in order) the following cross-thread posts:

* (link to the Modern Perl blog)



In essence, chromatic complained about how bad the File::Find API was, and 
then I said that I've been contributing to a rewrite (File-Find-Object) that 
solves its major philosophical problems, and that there are other future or 
present alternatives. In my blog post, I suggested that we ship an alternative 
to File-Find in the perl 5 distribution or (alternatively) that we noticeably 
refer the people who read the File::Find manual page to alternatives.

Then chromatic said "That's not what I meant" and that he doesn't want us to 
bloat the perl 5 core with non-essential modules.

What do you think?
