Hello! It is very nice tool.. however...
Is it just my imagination that it is one 8000 lines perl script?
You can do the same in five java classes, 20lines code each....
As perl exercise? You beat most of us....:) But I doubt anybody will be ever able to
maintain that :(
There is no better tool yet, so I've used it as the first step. The best alternative
is the Clirr tool that contains 7k lines of Java code but it is not flexible enough and
doesn't detect all compatibility issues. However I'll probably add reports of the
Clirr too in order to compare results.
This is not a request to package the tool (actually, there is nothing to package — it
works anywhere without the need to compile anything, so I'll maintain it by myself). I
just want to ask for what libraries you would like to see compatibility reports?
Thanks for your feedback.
