The Conway Channel is Damian Conway’s annual review of his latest, greatest, weirdest, and scariest new modules.

This year he’ll introduce some important improvements to several old favorites (including the mighty Regexp::Debugger), debut half a dozen entirely new Perl tools and utilities, and even demonstrate some useful unsolicited tinkering with other people’s CPAN modules.

You’ll laugh; you’ll cry; you’ll look on in helpless horror.
It’s Damian-as-usual: doing great and terrible things with Perl.
