Thank a CPAN author today!

This program will parse all perl files/modules from a given list of directories to try and find module authors to thank for. If you can, please find the time to thank every author whose module helped you in your projects/work :D


From CPAN:

cpanm App::cpanthanks

From within this repository:

cpanm .


cpanthanks [options] -- path [, path2, ...]

    --limit NUMBER                     only shows top NUMBER entries (default: 5)
    --order-by popularity|diversity    order your results (default: popularity)
    --skip-modules LIST                skip modules (default: lib strict warnings)
    --skip-authors LIST                skip authors (default: none skipped)


cpanthanks --skip-authors MYCPANID --limit 3 -- some/path other/path
cpanthanks --order-by=diversity -- my/project/path
