Not conveniently - Eclipse writes core for me on the fly as I'm
programming. I suspect that when you say that I can "generate perl code"
is that I write some other code to generate more code - during compile
or during runtime (like you showed in your previous e-mail), while I'm
looking for something more.. how shall I say it... ehmm... automatic.
Hey! that's the word I used before, I appear to be repeating myself :-(

It would be cool if someone would integrate this with some editor, which
Devel::Refactor seems to be begging for - it looks to me rather useless
w/o such integration.

I'll take 10% done over 0% done any day of the week, thank you very

Still, read as a parody, it is hilarious.
