I'm a Perl coder living in Bethlehem, PA and working Philadelphia. I'm a philosopher and theologan by training, but I was shocked to learn upon my graduation that these skills don't have many associated careers. Now I write code.

cpan recent uploads feed has moved

[ #28009 ]

I noticed a while ago that the CPAN's feed had stopped uploading. Most of my ability to write useful code hinges on the fact that I know the CPAN's contents pretty well, and keep up to date on it. The loss of this feed did not bode well for me.

Randal pointed me to another feed, but it sucked: its links were not to the dist pages, but to downloads.

I just went to the CPAN search page and found a new feed. Not only is it up to date, but its creator field is populated, and it has the dist's abstract. I wish this had been announced somewhere -- like maybe in the old feed!

  • Wow, you're right. That'll teach me not to actually go to the site when things break. {grin}

  • The mailing list sending out the top stories on
    this site has the distributions uploaded to CPAN
    for the previous day included.

    Seeing as there are not so many top stories,
    usually it has only the distributions.

    And there are links to the CPAN pages.
