Well the one thing I could not live without isn't a Perl module, but
a Firefox trick I got from the excellent "Perl Hacks" (O'Reilly) book...
Tom mentioned a module I didn't know, so I cut and paste that into
the Firefox location/awesome bar like "cpan Test::Differences" and
hit return. This hack takes me straight to the CPAN page.
Create a new Bookmark with the Keyword set to "cpan" and the
Location set to "http://search.cpan.org/perldoc?%s".
Alternatively, something like
"http://search.cpan.org/search?mode=module;query=%s" will perform a
search rather than jump to the module directly.
A bonus with the new Firefox awesome bar is that it remembers all
these prior hits, so just typing "cpan Test::Di<return>" takes me
straight back any time.
Great list Tom, and a happy New Year to you all!
