  • Perlmonks...? (Score:3, Informative)

    I've seen a node recently on Perlmonks [perlmonks.org] trying to establish the same core data, is this any help distributions and perl [perlmonks.org]?

    • Well, what I had in mind is supposed to include much more data. For example, RedHat 9 comes with an heavily modified 5.8.0. And compilation options : what distros provide large file support, or 64bit-ness, or threads, since when, etc.
      • I didn't think it would be enough detail, but it may be a start. As you'll see it seemed a popular enough as a concept, and I think a lot of people would lke it done - some may even help.

        Are you thinking of building a module, similar to Module::Core [cpan.org], so it's available to Perl module developers, as well as in a on line form?

        I think you are right in thinking that it would be a very useful resource for everyone. You could also include details on other binary distribution formats such as the various ActiveS
