Search the contents of CPAN with gonzuiby LTjake (Prior)
|on Apr 01, 2005 at 14:14 UTC||Need Help??|
Tatsuhiko Miyagawa, who wrote the Perl plugin for gonzui, has indexed a mini-CPAN (he tells me it took 48 hours to do the initial indexing, but incrementals are quite fast) and made it available for public consumption (here). You can read his announcement in his blog.
You can view some statistics of the database.
Things to try:
The advanced search page should give you a good idea as to what you can search on.
gonzui is still early in it's development and some parsers are (obviously) not quite perfect. However, I'm told that future enhancements include XML and template parsing as well as some database changes to allow for case insentive searching.
