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.

more more cpan metrics

[ #37805 ]

As suggested, I have run the code such that a dist's mere appearance on the CPAN is not counted. In other words: code exists if it is used. If not, it is ignored entirely. It ends up not having much effect.

JROCKWAY suggested running this in reverse: see who uses the most. I think that doing both would be interesting: who gets used a lot, "despite" also using a lot of prereqs.
