More Developed modules

on Feb 01, 2010 at 19:54 UTC ( #820821=perlquestion: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

myuserid7 has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

How I can find the modules which are little more mature?

There are modules for only 0.1 or 0.2 version, where there are modules like Chart-Clicker and Moose or even CGI.


Replies are listed 'Best First'.

    CPAN version numbers only mean two things. First, larger numbers are newer. Second, numbers with underscores represent "alpha" versions. Unfortunately, it's not clear what "alpha" means.

    Trying to divine any deeper meaning from a version number is a futile exercise in mind reading and sorcery.

      Thanks chromatic. What is the more useful way to find mature/ more developed modules?

        Read the reviews, look at the testers reports, see what depends on those modules, ask your local Perl mongers or PerlMonks or a Perl mailing list.

    version numbers only hint at maturity, they do not indicate maturity
