Hmmm, I might try it. Usually, I use perl or PHP3 for such things, and debugging
is pretty much easy (hint: write a logfile of everything you do ever), with
either PHP3 logging debug info to a database (kinda neat) or modperl with
a persistent file open.

The closest to CPAN for C is the comp.sources.* groups. The most appropriate
I can see is comp.sources.unix or comp.sources.misc. They are archived.

Yep, plus the odd SystemV extension.
