Acme::CPANAuthors::British - We are British CPAN authors


   use Acme::CPANAuthors;

   my $authors  = Acme::CPANAuthors->new("British");

   my $number   = $authors->count;
   my @ids      = $authors->id;
   my @distros  = $authors->distributions("BARBIE");
   my $url      = $authors->avatar_url("BINGOS");
   my $kwalitee = $authors->kwalitee("JONALLEN");
   my $name     = $authors->name("DGL");


This class provides a hash of British CPAN authors' PAUSE ID and name to be used with the Acme::CPANAuthors module.

This module was created simply because nobody had written it and uploaded it to CPAN before me :)


If you are a British CPAN author not listed here, please send me your ID/name via email or RT so we can always keep this module up to date. If there's a mistake and you're listed here but are not British (or just don't want to be listed), sorry for the inconvenience: please contact me and I'll remove the entry right away.

Please note that British implies that you consider yourself from England, Wales, Scotland or Northern Ireland.

Thanks to Kenichi Ishigaki for writing Acme::CPANAuthors, and Sébastien Aperghis-Tramoni for writing Acme::CPANAuthors::French on which I based this release.
