in reply to Which modules are most often mentioned on PerlMonks???

This is too cool :) I'm glad to see that my favorite module came in first :)

I am curious about one thing, though. There are plenty of modules that have been mentioned only twice, but none that are mentioned once. I don't want to suggest that you have a bug in your code, so I humbly ask, what were the criteria for inclusion on the list?

Cheers,
Ovid

    I trimmed it down cuz if I had the modules that were just mentioned once in there it was too long to fit in a MySQL text field.

    I basically just searched through the database dump for things that matched  /((\w+::)+\w+)/ or /(\w+\.pm)/i to find the matches.

      Interestingly, the most popular modules/pragmas are all missed!

      use DBI;
      use warnings;
      use strict;

      Or what about a mention such as "use CGI;" which also would not be counted. Is the intention to exclude all mentions in code? Or would it be practical to add a new RegEx like:

      /^use \w+;/

    Yes, is this just in code blocks, or from bracket references as well?
