cpan kobe search replacement???

bulk88 has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I read kobesearch gone? and is still dead. One feature I miss of kobe search is looking at a list of all modules in a module name directory/"package", and by distribution name directories. Is there a way to do this on one of the remaining CPAN interfaces? forces me to pick vauge category names which some distributions were never assigned to since their package names were never registered. I dont know the name of what I am looking for, but I know what package any sane Perl programmer would put it in. How do I get such a list similar to the old kobe search?

Replies are listed 'Best First'.

    At you can also enter your own text and match that against "All", "Distributions", "Modules" and "Authors" categories (by selecting the category you want from the drop-down box).

    For example, searching "Distributions" that match "PDL" presents you with these candidates.

    (I haven't ever used kobesearch, so I don't really know if this post of mine is at all useful to you.)
