in reply to Re^4: CPAN reverse dependencies
in thread CPAN reverse dependencies

Currently, the only publicly available service that doesn't need to install and run an awful lot of local things that provides this information is CPANTS, which is down most of the time, so probably useless for day-to-day inquiries.
CPANdeps has it.

    When I tried several attempts this morning, I just got completely blank screens.

    It is however very well possible that I did it wrong, and the site also does not provide a link do do reverse lookups (or I must have gone blind).

    I tried this and this and got blank page in both Opera and Firefox.

      It needs a distribution version too (but because it's a rather nasty hack it needs to be the most recent version).

      Try this. I should really get round to making it more user-friendly.

        Great, thanks. That works.

        When you're into it, you could make every module also be a link to it's search.cpan.org location.

      Having looked at the code, this will work. I'd forgotten I'd written that ;-)
