I'd like to quickly jump in to advocate Math::MatrixSparse, a pure-Perl sparse matrix library. It does just what its name promises. Note, however, that the original code has some annoying bugs, therefore, I maintain a separate version here.

    Maybe you should ask the author for permissions to maintain the official module on CPAN? If you can't reach the author, have a look at the official PAUSE FAQ on this and mail the modules mailing list.

    Cheers,

      Believe me, I have tried everything. I tried to contact the original author several times, asked help at every possible forum, even at comp.lang. perl.modules, etc. This was several years ago. Finally, I gave up. I hope that if someone really needs this module, he or she will make a quick google search and find it on my page. Something really ought to be done about unmaintained modules at CPAN. But I am not the first one saying that, and so far nothing has happened.

        A better solution would be for you to take over maintainership of the module on CPAN - and the link that tsee provided above has info on how to do that if you're unable to contact the original author. It's just a matter of sending an email to modules@perl.org. Once they're satisfied that the author can't be contacted, and that the module is abandoned, they'll hand maintainership over to you.
