in reply to CPAN Testers command-line viewer

This should be on CPAN as an applicaton. I think you know how to do it. :)

Update (an aside): Before discovering I wrote a little script that processed the tester's JSON dump, pulled in the text of the actual individual reports, and filled in a bunch of fields in an SQLite database, one row per report. Then I could SELECT ..... WHERE and find similarities across multiple failures. But it was really a one-off script: I was working on one particular module at the time, and soon discovered the analysis report that was more thorough and more useful. ...can't seem to find it now.

    "This should be on CPAN as an applicaton."

    I have a bunch of similar little utilities knocking around in various states of usability. I'm tempted to wrap them all up into a single App::Cmd-based box of tricks.

    Update: I've put together a small demonstration at You can get a copy like this:

    hg clone

    ... and assuming your libraries etc are set up correctly, you can run it like:

    p5u testers JSON
    p5u debian-release JSON
    perl -E'sub Monkey::do{say$_,for@_,do{($monkey=[caller(0)]->[3])=~s{::}{ }and$monkey}}"Monkey say"->Monkey::do'

    Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
