What Is NMS?

Why do we need a replacement:?

The problem is that the scripts in Matt's Script Archive aren't very good. The scripts are well known amongst the Perl community to be badly written, buggy and insecure. Anyone asking for support on Matt's scripts in any forum will be told in no uncertain terms that they shouldn't use his scripts.

Unfortunately until now there have been no replacements for Matt's scripts that you would want people to use. Some months ago, the London Perl Mongers decided to address this problem and write a series of drop-in replacements for Matt's scripts. This project is the result.
