CPAN is one, of course, but it's not the thing that really attracts people and that causes a hype.

It got me :P I kept hearing everyone talk about CPAN and was like "maybe I better learn this language and see what this CPAN thing is about"


I'm a peripheral visionary... I can see into the future, but just way off to the side.

    widely popular page like this for Python -- whenever I need to do anything, I just go there (or its local copy) to find what I need. I don't know whether there is anywhere similar page for Perl, but I would love to have a set of "known to be good" libraries -- ONE for each purpose. Where is it?
      Funny, I went to that page to look for "ssh", something I've been dealing with lately. I didn't find anything there (is that list only for "core" modules?). I did go here, and didn't find any "one" definite thing there either. Even in Perl, there is no "one" module to use...the "one" to use depends on different things.
