    Thanks! That's probably the one for indexed modules. That list is missing the module I mentioned (Arff::Util). Now I need to find a list that would include this module.

      There's a file called ls-lR available on most CPAN mirrors, which lists every file on CPAN, but doesn't peek inside tarballs. So it lists Arff-Util-1.23.tar.gz. It's many megabytes in size though.

      I've asked about this module in #toolchain on IRC for you, and miyagawa has spotted the reason Arff-Util is not in the module index. Arff-Util 1.24 was uploaded to CPAN, which pushed Arff-Util 1.23 out of the index. Arff-Util 1.24 was subsequently deleted.

      use Moops; class Cow :rw { has name => (default => 'Ermintrude') }; say Cow->new->name
        Thanks for this information, and for going the extra mile to figure out the problem with this distribution. Did Miyagawa use a special admin trick, or did he just check backpan and compare with current cpan, or did he do something else to figure out that the distribution had been deleted?

    Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
