Please release perldiver 1.2

Please release perldiver 1.2. Perldiver 1.1 is a gem of a script, and I use it all the time. I'm starting to get perl programming contracts over the Net, so it's becoming increasingly necessary to know not only which modules are installed on a client's remote host, but also the version of those modules. Even if you release it "as is" as a beta version while continuing to make 1.1 available, it would be valuable to me.

Your ever grateful, loyal website visitor :)

Re: Please release perldiver 1.2

The poor update has been pending time available to do it. Ethically speaking, it can't be released "as is" because it's buggy (doesn't display correctly on Netscrape). It'll be re-released when html is displayed using CGI.pm (95% done).

Re: Please release perldiver 1.2

Please allow me to disagree with you. IMHO, it's not an ethical question. Perldiver 1.2 simply doesn't support NetWasteOfEveryonesTimeTryingToBeCompatibleWith3Versions. :)
