Acme::CPANAuthors::Acme::CPANAuthors::Authors - We are CPAN authors who have authored Acme::CPANAuthors modules


    use Acme::CPANAuthors;

    my $authors = Acme::CPANAuthors->new('Acme::CPANAuthors::Acme::CPANAuthors::Authors');

    $number   = $authors->count;
    @ids      = $authors->id;
    @distros  = $authors->distributions('ACALPINI');
    $url      = $authors->avatar_url('SHLOMIF');
    $kwalitee = $authors->kwalitee('SANKO');


This class provides a hash of Pause IDs/names of Acme::CPANAuthors::* authorin' CPAN authors.

I started this module because Acme::CPANAuthors::UnitedStates doesn't exist and apparently I'm not listed in Acme::CPANAuthors::Japanese. ((sigh)) I just want to be a part of something... great... greater... than-- um, sorry, lost my train of thought.

Anyway, I decided both Acme::CPANAuthors::Earth (well covered between and and Acme::CPANAuthors::Authors (only include authors who have published at least one distribution, script, etc.) would just be too time consuming for a 3AM lapse in judgement so... there you are.


To install this module, run the following commands:

        perl Build.PL
        ./Build test
        ./Build install


Have you authored a module in the Acme::CPANAuthors namespace, aren't listed here, and would like to be? Or are you currently listed but have since turned away from your deviant, Acme ways and would like to be removed? Just contact me via email or stop by the Issue Tracker and I'll fix ya right up.


Report any bugs or feature requests to the Issue tracker or directly to me via email. I'll keep you up to date on any related changes.

Seriously, it's just a list of names... what could possibly go wrong?
