Subject: CHI should be required, not recommended

Perlanet 0.32 fails to load because it wants to use CHI. CHI should be "requires" not "recommends" in Build.PL. Cheers, Stephen

Oops! Yes you're absolutely right, of course. But I don't want to force people to use CHI as it's quite a heavyweight module. So I think I'll do something like this: * Don't load CHI as the module loads * When the config has been loaded, check to see if caching is required * If caching is required then attempt to load CHI * If CHI doesn't load, warn user but proceed without caching How does that sound? Look for a new release later today. Cheers, Dave...

Hi Dave, Sounds great, thanks. I had problems installing CHI on OS X 10.5 and had to follow the twisty, windy path of dependencies to an apparently broken version of Test::Tester (which was causing Test::Log::Dispatch to fail). Making CHI optional definitely seems more sensible :). Cheers, Stephen

Version 0.34 on the way to CPAN now. If you can't wait, you can get it from http://code.mag-sol.com/Perlanet/. Cheers, Dave... p.s. Now I'm thinking I should do the same thing for XML::OPML::SimpleGen.
