Max Planck Institute perl archives at

[ #33665 ]

I want to record the address for the best archives of lists like perl5-porters and modules, I think. I'm always forgetting it.


The xray I associated with xray vision, so I thought it's a jokey site, but it appears it's the site of the xray astronomy division of one of the German Max Planck institutes. Academic German URLs don't appear to have a ac. or edu. subdomain.

The mp of mpe and mpg is Max Planck. I can only remember the e and the g by the fact e comes before g.

I guess I have to thank German taxpayers for supporting the archiving of perl mailing list messages, something which has only an indirect link with xray astronomy.

  • The 'e' stands for extraterrestial physics, as in 'Max Plank Institute for extraterrestial physics'. The 'g' stands for Gesellschaft, which is German for Society. Back in 1996 I did my diploma thesis there. Funny enough I met the guy that set up the server, Norbert Grüner, only when I returned to Munich in 2000 and joined the Munich Perl Mongers.
