A CPAN related modules sectionby metaperl (Curate)
|on Dec 01, 2005 at 16:06 UTC||Need Help??|
I read the list of new submissions to CPAN on a daily basis. I have found it impossible to get authors to add related modules to the SEE ALSO section of their docs. Sometimes they don't respond. Sometimes it is egotism. Sometimes I just don't know. But the bottom line is that there are a lot of modules related to each other that people don't know about.
The ideal solution would be to cobble up a database and render HTML from that , but i am too lazy to do it.
Also, one needs to distinguish between
Concluding, I am mainly interested in a place to develop blind lists and perhaps having the follow-ups relate personal-experience or feature-comparison.
If you notice, there is an ever-growing set of off-site links from search.cpan.org for each module - AnnoCPAN, CPANForum, CPANTesters, CPANreviews. It seems to me that CPAN-related is a gap that could be filled by a section of this website. What do you think?
