  • CPAN Stats (Score:4, Informative)

    Its interesting to note that according to Ziggy, almost 50% of the brand new modules on CPAN were uploaded in 2003.

    First, we need to remember that there are lies, statistics and misinterpreted statistics.

    The numer I came up with is from analyzing the modules list. This includes some duplication (mod_perl is listed twice; there are three distributions of AcePerl at the top of the list) and some exclusions (perl-5.8.x.tar.gz is not listed, nor is Meta).

    Analyzing the modules list cannot show the grow

    • OR you're misinterpreting the statement "almost 50% of current module distributions on CPAN have been created or modified since January 2003".

      OR I got my information second hand and it was misquoted. :) Sorry, entirely my mistake. Teach me not to check my sources. I hope you didn't mistake the tone of my writing to imply I was trying to one up your stats.

      The ls -lR stats and your module list stats make a hell of a lot more sense now
