"Forget the Great Wall of China - I can see CPAN from up here and and that thing is huge!"
- Buzz Aldrin, Astronaut
CPAN is big. In fact it's so big you almost need a map. Well I'm happy to announce that now there is one! I present for your entertainment and edification - the Map of CPAN.
The Map of CPAN is really just meant to be a bit of fun. Search sites like
search.cpan.org and the shiny new metacpan.org exist to help you find what you’re looking for. The Map of CPAN allows you to find things you weren’t looking for. Zoom in on things that catch your eye.
Explore patterns. Follow links and dependency chains. Discover stuff. Surprise
yourself. It’s about serendipity! Try it.
