in thread CPAN: standard modules and other modules

Just to check out my suspicions, I searched CPAN for five modules that my copy of perlmodlib said are standard with 5.8.7.
Class::Struct
File::Copy
Memoize-1.01
MIME-Base64-3.05
Tie::Handle
Only three of these are linked back to the distribution Perl 5.8.7, the other two are found as separate distributions. Not even the listing of modules with Perl 5.8.7 shows the other two modules. Only by looking in the perlmodlib of that release can you find them listed.

I have to agree that it would be very nice to see the addition of a "Standard since Perl 5.8.3" information line. It would seem all the information needed is in Module::CoreList as mentioned above. I can see that it might be required for some modules to mention more than one release, something like "Standard since Perl 5.7.3, 5.8.0", when the release dates are staggered.

[LanX]: what is the intention of your question?
[LanX]: why do you need to see the nodelet without votes left???
[marinersk]: LanX, the problem is that the lack of interface visual stability is disconcerting to me. The Nodelet appearing and disappearing is distracting, and despite over a decade, still troubles me. It jangles me.
[LanX]: I see
[marinersk]: I appear to be unusually dependent on spacial stability. I have had trouble from someone moving an object a mere four inches to the left.
[Eily]: I think the solution is to write posts so brilliant that you gain XP on each refresh, no matter how often :P
