Github is catching up fast as the preferred destination for CPAN module development. But I wonder: Have we agreed yet on how to name our projects? Shouldn't there be a de-facto standard?

Obviously there's no such thing yet, as there is

which is the true name of the CPAN module (indeed, the distro name is called "libwww-perl", which is very unusual for CPAN), then there is

which uses a short (but unambiguous) name and

which adheres to the RHEL/FBSD school of thought. Another possibility would be the Debian way, something like "libnet-amazon-perl".

Clearly, there should be a "-perl" (or -cpan) suffix (or prefix) to distinguish CPAN modules from the same projects, written in a different language.

Thoughts on a naming standard?

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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
