( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Hello, I don't fault you not paging through every last CPAN result. I think search system there could be improved as well. I'm also frustrated it doesn't some better kind of "rating/comment" system, or some other way to get a clue about which modules people are generally finding useful.

I was just surprised that once the module had been brought to your attention, you didn't seem to be giving it much consideration. Cleary, from your post directly above, you have done that.

I'm really not supposed to having many modules that approach the same problem space the same way. While I think there are many cases where collaboration versus competition would be beneficial, as much as much as anything the problem lies the ability to usefully manage all the information we have about all the available options. To address that, I think we really need some enhancements to CPAN websites, or some better external resources to supplement them.
