NAME

       Task::Kensho - A Glimpse at an Enlightened Perl

VERSION

       version 0.40

SYNOPSIS

           # apt-get install libtask-kensho-all-perl

DESCRIPTION

       From <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kensho>:

           Kenshō (見性) (C. Wu) is a Japanese term for enlightenment experiences - most commonly
           used within the confines of Zen Buddhism - literally meaning "seeing one's nature"[1]
           or "true self."[2] It generally "refers to the realization of nonduality of subject
           and object."[3]

       Task::Kensho is a list of recommended modules for Enlightened Perl development. CPAN is
       wonderful, but there are too many wheels and you have to pick and choose amongst the
       various competing technologies.

       The plan is for Task::Kensho to be a rough testing ground for ideas that go into among
       other things the Enlightened Perl Organisation Extended Core (EPO-EC).

       The modules that are bundled by Task::Kensho are broken down into several categories and
       are still being considered. They are all taken from various top 100 most used perl modules
       lists and from discussions with various subject matter experts in the Perl Community. That
       said, this bundle does not follow the guidelines established for the EPO-EC for peer
       review via industry advisers.

       Starting in 2011, Task::Kensho split its sub-groups of modules into individually-
       installable tasks.  Each Task::Kensho sub-task is listed at the beginning of its section
       in this documentation.

       When installing Task::Kensho in Debian GNU/Linux, you can install each sub-task
       metapackage separately (e.g. libtask-kensho-async-perl), or you can install all tasks at
       once by installing the libtask-kensho-all-perl metapackage.  These metapackages facilitate
       the ease and simplicity the distribution aims to achieve whilst utilising the power of the
       Debian GNU/Linux package system.

INSTALLING

       To install all Task::Kensho tasks and their recommended modules on Debian GNU/Linux,
       install the libtask-kensho-all-perl metapackage:

           # apt-get install libtask-kensho-all-perl

       Each Kensho task is itself a metapackage. To install a specific task, install the relevant
       metapackage. E.g. for Task::Kensho::Async:

           # apt-get install libtask-kensho-async-perl

LIMITATIONS

       This list is by no means comprehensive of the "Good" Modules on CPAN.  Nor is this
       necessarily the correct path for all developers. Each of these modules has a perfectly
       acceptable replacement that may work better for you. This is however a path to good perl
       practice, and a starting place on the road to Enlightened Perl programming.
