Gee, I think this software of mine is close to ready for release. I just need to brush it up a little.
... (create a todo list ... it's half a dozen things)
... (open the file, and there's a list of another half dozen things to do)
... (there are several known bugs that have no discernable cause)
... (none of the functions are documented and I cannot tell what one of them is supposed to return)
... (making it run well will require repeatedly rerunning it and massaging input data files)
... (it produces no output when given the same input that had produced good results the last time I had worked on it)
... (the file is still named test.pl)
This might take more time than I had thought.
