Unix has always had a philosophy of composable tools, where one tool outputs to the next in a pipeline.
But the technique of piping a *textual* stream of data, and having to extract data out of it is looking a bit long in the tooth. Microsoft (not historically an innovator in its shell environment :-) has stolen a march with its Powershell.
Can we do better in Perl? With composable streams of objects? Written in a modern OO framework (Moose)?
You bet we can!
