Cool, people use my stuff! But also, bad me! modstarter.cgi is sorely out of
date. It even gives you a .cvsignore file! I have been meaning to rewrite
modstarter.cgi and I just haven't found the tuits.

But, I recently had the fortitude to scrape lots of old legacy code from
various moldering directories and put it on Github. Modstarter is a gem of
not-so-Modern Perl:


That's right, "use warnings" but not "use strict" !

Go ahead and laugh, but how much of *your* legacy code is on Github?

In short, I also highly recommend using Module::Build :)
