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

I am getting following error message while trying to install the HTML::TextToHTML module.

perl -MCPAN -e 'install HTML::TextToHTML,

CPAN: Storable loaded ok Going to read /root/.cpan/Metadata Database was generated on Sun, 27 Nov 2011 23:29:11 GMT Warning: Cannot install HTML::TextToHTML, don't know what it is. Try the command i /HTML::TextToHTML/ to find objects with matching identifiers..

The same command was working perfectly fine few days back, but giving error now.

Any help / suggestion is heartly welcomed.

    CPAN doesn't know about HTML::TextToHTML. Maybe you had a local CPAN mirror that broke a few days ago or you have changed the way you access CPAN?

    True laziness is hard work
      Same here, I'm using this module several years and ever could install it via CPAN.

    Another possibility is that the module used to be on CPAN (apparently on Rubykat's author page) and, for some reason is no longer there. There is project page for HTML::TextToHTML on Sourceforge, which has a download link and documentation that may help.
      RUBYKAT here. Yes, I removed it, because I am no longer the official maintainer, and I was sick of getting bug reports. I'm not sure what to do, because the person who offered to take over maintenance (a few years ago, mind!) has done absolutely NOTHING for the module. Not even release a new version which indicates the change of maintainer. Should I take back the maintenance role? It's just that poor health has made it a bit overwhelming to keep up with maintaining the module. I need help! I don't really want the module to die. Is anyone willing to help me? (RubyKat)

      My apologies for the Anonymous Monk posts. Still getting the hang of this.

      I think I would be willing to take on a release manager role, if I could get help with the actual coding. Anyone? Please?

    It looks like at least one cpan distribution still depends on it: EBook-Tools.
      Hi I am working on a script where i am planning to use EBook::Tools. Is there anyway i can get previous version of the HTMl::TextToHTML. I have been using perl and working with it for few years now. If i can be of help i would like to have a look at HTML::TextToHTML module.
