Simple things done easily...! Yea...! Sure...!
'Evolving', 'public domain' Perl is quite challenging
at times, always due to our programmer mentality,
lack of well organized docs.
This is especially true, because Perl has tentacles
into just about everything PC. So there's so much
more trouble one can get into...!
We put rats thru mazes, then we put robot mice
thru mazes, now, Perl puts people thru mazes... :-)
Spent days, on & off, trying to do NET::SMTP.
Finally, happened on a Web page somewhere
mentioning Authen::SASL needs to be installed.
Any way to state that in NET::SMTP docs...?
Or better yet just include it in distribution...!
Or 'require' it if a '$smtp->auth' issued...?
ALSO... Active State 5.8.6 PPM is not being installed,
Authen::SASL into their TOC (Table Of Contents) index.
by saving the PPM installation log.
Lastly, linked manpages are nowhere to be found.
a) Authen::SASL::Perl manpage
b) Authen::SASL::Cyrus manpage
This is perl, v5.8.6 built for MSWin32-x86-multi-thread
(with 3 registered patches, see perl -V for more detail)
