after some time spent cleaning up the code and fixing bugs all over, I've
finally released CSS::SAC (a Perl module that implements SAC) to CPAN. You
may find it at the following address:


I've started building the test suite and the present version is expected to
be early beta-quality. A number of small things are missing, they will get
filled in soon. There are a few known bugs, mostly relating to backslash
escapes and the internal representation of element + pseudo-element
selectors (on which I'll ask a question here when I'm done thinking it
through). The reason why I haven't fixed those bugs before releasing is
because at least one of them depends on a module over which I have no
control (the author has been sent a patch and will update it soon), and
because it is mostly usable right now and I didn't want to delay release
any further. Should you need the fixes for those problems, I'll be happy to
send them to you in private mail until Text::Balanced is fixed.

Many thanks to the following people:

 - Bjoern Hoehrmann for his immediate reaction and valuable feedback and
suggestions. It's certainly much harder to type with all those fingers that
all the Mafia padres have cut off, but at least I get work done much faster
than before. And also for those nasty bugs he kindly uncovered.

 - Ian Hickson for very very very kind testing support, and all sorts of

 - Manos Batsis for starting a very long discussion on this that eventually
deviated into other very interesting topics, and for giving me some really
weird style sheets to feed into this module.

 - Simon St.Laurent for posting this on xmlhack.com and thus pointing a lot
of people to this module (as seen in my referer logs).

And of course all the other people that have sent encouragement notes and
feature requests.

Enjoy !
