I laughed, I cried, I released my software into the wild

[ #33197 ]

Background: Gabor Szabo :

A few days ago I created a report listing the availability of every CPAN module as package in various Linux distributions.

A bit more work on it and now there is a report for each module author as well. http://www.szabgab.com/distributions/

To which, in reply, Eric Wilhelm :

Neat, one of my modules is in debian.

Oh no, one of my modules is in debian!

  • Thanks for posting this. It's nice to see the report!

  • It would seem the report is several months out of date. One of my modules is not listed as a FreeBSD port, but it does exist in the HTML file Module::Packaged::Generate [cpan.org] uses. Two of my modules listed are for versions that are from last year, even though again the ports list lists them at the current version.

    It would also be useful to have an SQLite database that could be interrogated to find out any other interesting info.

    However, it is a great starting point :)
