Here is a quick and dirty little app that will query http://perladvent.org for the module of the day and install it via CPAN. You must have the proper permissions on your system to actually install the module. Better late then never. :)
use strict; use warnings; use CPAN; use Time::Piece; use LWP::Simple; use Data::Dumper; use HTML::TokeParser::Simple; use Lingua::EN::Numbers::Ordinate; use constant YEAR => 2003; my $time = localtime; unless ($time->year == YEAR && $time->mon == 12 && $time->mday < 25) { die "today does not have module\n"; } my $day = ordinate($time->mday); my $html = get("http://perladvent.org/@{[YEAR]}/$day"); my $p = HTML::TokeParser::Simple->new(\$html); while (my $t = $p->get_token) { if ($t->is_start_tag('div')) { my $attr = $t->return_attr; if (defined $attr->{class} && $attr->{class} eq 'moduletitle') { $t = $p->get_token; CPAN::Shell->install($t->as_is); } } }
