in reply to Mining the hidden gems of CPAN

It's quite a while ago, and maybe I didn't look hard enough, but two modules come to mind: List::Util and Tie::IxHash.

I've quite often implemented the functionality offered by those modules scattered over different projects.

    I can already think of uses for Tie::IxHash. Nice one.

    Although it probably fails my new rule I'd add Scalar::Util along with List::Util as a rather useful little module that's harder to find than it should be.

    Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
