CPAN

CPAN is the magic bullet that all other languages envy.

It's a vast repository of modules that people have contributed.

It stands for Comprehensive Perl Archive Network.

Search for modules at search.cpan.org

http://search.cpan.org is the standard front-end to search the CPAN. It also includes links to most of the rest of these sites.

Use the alternate search at metacpan.org

There's a different interface to CPAN at https://metacpan.org. metacpan.org has more features and links for exploring the CPAN and distributions.

Find opinions about modules at cpanratings.perl.org

http://cpanratings.perl.org lets you rate and comment on modules and see what others thought of them, before you try.

Report bugs at rt.cpan.org

Submit your bug to RT at http://rt.cpan.org.

Annotate module documentation at annocpan.org

http://annocpan.org lets you annotate the documentation for a module, with the hope that the author will incorporate the changes in the future.

Find old versions of modules on the BackPAN

http://backpan.perl.org/ has every module ever on CPAN, even if it's old and out of date.
