<blockquote>We've all been there--a data translation problem rears its head and you reach for your toolkit of Perl snippets. It might involve parsing a CSV file, extracting MIME attachments, generating bulk SQL insert statements, or scraping data from a web application. You know you have code lying around that'll take you halfway there, if only you could find it. Then there's the problem of pulling it all together.
Wouldn't it be great if there was a way to catalog your code snippets? How about a way to browse or search by keyword, a way to modularize your code for easy reuse, and a way to document it and easily access that documentation? Wouldn't it be even better if you could pull the pieces together to assemble a solution without having to actually write code at all?
Now there is. Now there's Sprog.</blockquote>
Read the <a href="http://www.perl.com/pub/a/2005/06/23/sprog.html">main article</a> and the perlmonks.org <a href="http://perlmonks.org/index.pl?node_id=469650">post</a>
I'll be trying it out tonight, but it looks like it could be very hadny for saving your own blocks and using them again later to develop a module.
