  • You know, I had a déjà vu when I read what you wrote about the Module::Collection thing. It's slightly different but solves a similar problem. Three points if you guess what I'm thinking of!


    P.S.: Where have you been in the past days?
    • Can't guess off the top of my head, other than maybe CPAN::Mini::Inject...

      As for where I've been, although I've moved into my new apartment, I can't get ADSL or wireless internet (or at least, not that doesn't suck hard) so I'm getting cable internet, which means a 1 week wait for the technician to turn up and connect it.

      • PAR::Repository does some of what you describe. The goals are different, but it also deals with scanning distributions, installing bunches, etc.

        Fortunately, PAR distro as simpler than CPAN distros :)
        • Hmm... if so, perhaps we should look at recycling/sharing some of the code between the two?
          • Hi,

            thought about this again. I might have been a little too quick in my reply. Well, there *are* common ideas in between the two projects. One of the things that triggered this was what you said about selecting specifically the newest versions of a module, etc. That's something PAR::Repository::Client does by default. The code is attached, but you'll realize that it's only as much code because it also deals with arch-type and perl-version which you shouldn't need to care about. PAR::Repository::* also takes
    • I also just noticed Module::Dependency, which is somewhat similar as well, although again, it only aims to do a specific task.
