Module popularity

[ #10476 ]
Have you ever written a module you thought would be very popular, but it wasn't? Have you ever written one you thought almost no one would download, but was inexplicably popular?

Such is the case with sys-proctable (about 20 downloads in 6 months). It works on Solaris, Linux and FreeBSD. I thought more people would be interested in this one - I think it's pretty cool. On the other hand there's sys-cpu (about 25 downloads in 3 days). It only works on Solaris at the moment and doesn't do anything especially cool IMO.

I don't get it.

  • CSS::SAC (Score:3, Interesting)

    Yeah that happened to me :) One of ly first modules out that was CSS::SAC which is a poorly documented CSS parser with a SAC interface (CSS's equivalent to SAX). It seems to get downloaded from CPAN quite often, and I've received more feedback on it than on all of my other modules combined. I always thought its usage would be reserved to a few CSS geeks, but somehow people seem to be using it (though they never answer when I ask them why...).
