Module List Back

[ #1397 ]

I wrote a little script tonight to automatically grab the latest CPAN uploads and post them on use Perl each day. This is something that hasn't been working in some time, as I was doing it somewhat manually. This will be totally automatic.

My only concern is that the front page, during slow news times (such as now), the whole front page will be nothing but new modules. :-) Still, you can filter those out of your home page, and from your daily headlines/newsletter (if you get those) by clicking Module News as an excluded topic in your preferences.

  • Thanks, pudge.

    There was a comment from wickline that the daily posting is actually less current than the CPAN uploads slashbox. However, stories in module news get archived, while slashboxes don't. Now that this is being posted automagically, it'll be nice in a few months or years from now to see how and where CPAN has grown.

    Thanks again.

    • Right, the slashbox is updated every half hour or so. But it doesn't have descriptions, it won't get mailed to you, it doesn't get archived, ... um, the font size is smaller. :-)
