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

modulelist mistakes core DB for D/DM/DMR/DProf-19970614.tar.gz

So cpanp informs me that DB is outdated    19     1.03     19970614.00     DB                                   DMR

It says

$ cpanp l DB Details for 'DB' Author Dean Roehrich (...) Description None given Development Stage Unknown Installed File C:\perl\5.14.1\lib\DB.pm Interface Style Unknown Language Used Unknown Package DProf-19970614.tar.gz Public License Unknown Support Level Unknown Version Installed 1.03 Version on CPAN 19970614 Contains: DB + 19970614

4 Jun 1997 http://search.cpan.org/~dmr/DProf-19970614/

This is not DB - programmatic interface to the Perl debugging API

cpan gives the same

$ cpan -D DB (no description) D/DM/DMR/DProf-19970614.tar.gz C:\perl\5.14.1\lib\DB.pm Installed: 1.03 CPAN: 19970614 Not up to date Dean Roehrich (DMR)

Anyone else see this wonkyness?

    Line 170 of DProf.pm is "package DB;". This should probably be changed to:

    package DB; # Hide package from CPAN indexers

    Though, that is a bit of a sad state of affairs.

    Is this a new issue or a long-standing one? Because that line of code has been there quite a long time.

    I wonder if something changed recently in the indexer. cpan-outdated exhibited a similar bug recently, but doesn't appear to be related to any changes in its code: https://rt.cpan.org/Public/Bug/Display.html?id=72880
