This is why search on CPAN (as useful as it sometimes is) is not always helpful. There are two different search engines on cpan ( and Searching for 'ESRI' on doesn't return anything because there aren't any modules that have the word ESRI as part of the module name. The kobesearch engine searches the content of module documentation, and searching there for 'ESRI' turns up several modules that mention it, but returns different modules depending on what you search. Searching kobesearch for 'ESRI' in 'Distributions' returns Geo::Shapelib and XML::Generator::SVG::ShapeFile. Searching in 'Modules' returns those two plus Geo::E00. Neither search finds my own Geo::ShapeFile module, which I know mentions ESRI in the documentation several times.

We're not surrounded, we're in a target-rich environment!

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
