Here is a quick and dirty little app that will query http://perladvent.org for the module of the day and install it via CPAN. You must have the proper permissions on your system to actually install the module. Better late then never. :)
use strict; use warnings; use CPAN; use Time::Piece; use LWP::Simple; use Data::Dumper; use HTML::TokeParser::Simple; use Lingua::EN::Numbers::Ordinate; use constant YEAR => 2003; my $time = localtime; unless ($time->year == YEAR && $time->mon == 12 && $time->mday < 25) { die "today does not have module\n"; } my $day = ordinate($time->mday); my $html = get("http://perladvent.org/@{[YEAR]}/$day"); my $p = HTML::TokeParser::Simple->new(\$html); while (my $t = $p->get_token) { if ($t->is_start_tag('div')) { my $attr = $t->return_attr; if (defined $attr->{class} && $attr->{class} eq 'moduletitle') { $t = $p->get_token; CPAN::Shell->install($t->as_is); } } }

Title:
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.
