I have been programming perl for a while: seriously in the last year and sporatically before that. I often find here on Perlmonks some reference to a CPAN module that would have helped me at one stage of some project or another. Some are recent additions to the repository (e.g Text::xSV
) while some did not turn up with searches I made.
One problem is that in the heat of programming, one does not often see how to generalize one's problem and then describe it in a way a CPAN search can find it.
Finally, it was a great pleasure when I found CPAN.pm. It was not installed by default on my systems. Maybe one way to help promote the use of CPAN is to get more installations to include CPAN.pm by default.
