There is an alternative search engine to CPAN for which a CPAN-weekly mailing list has been setup. We are beta-testing it right now.

You can email the maintainer of the website and beta-test along with us!

Alternatively, here is a "perl" script which you can put in your cron and get a weekly text/plain email of cpan.org/RECENT.html. I quoted Perl above because I am leveraging both mail and lynx and external technologies instead of writing a Pure perl script.

#!/usr/bin/perl $ENV{TERM}='vt100'; $recent_file='/tmp/RECENT.txt'; $email_file='/tmp/ARRIVALS.txt'; $email_recipient_list='princepawn@yahoo.com'; system "lynx -dump http://www.cpan.org/RECENT.html > $recent_file"; open T, $recent_file; while (<T>) { /(authors.*readme$)/ && push @readme, $1; } `echo "" > $email_file`; for $readme (sort @readme) { my $url = "http://www.cpan.org/$readme"; warn $url; system "lynx -dump $url > X"; system "echo $url >>$email_file"; system "head -5 X >>$email_file"; system "echo >>$email_file; echo >>$email_file"; } `cat $email_file | mail $email_recipient_list`;

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
