MetaCPAN is a service to search the CPAN repository of Perl modules. Perl programmers can search MetaCPAN by keyword, module author or category. The MetaCPAN service is also made available via API (and yes, there's a CPAN module to access MetaCPAN). Developers can search the MetaCPAN API by six different fields: author, distribution, favorite, file, rating and release. There is also an advanced feature to join across multiple search types. The API is RESTful, with data returned as JSON or JSONP with a callback. The current version of the API allows a maximum of 5000 search requests.
The following is a list of sample source code snippets that matched your search term. Source code snippets are chunks of source code that were found out on the Web that you can cut and paste into your own source code. Whereas most of the sample source code we've curated for our directory is for consuming APIs, we occasionally find something interesting on the API provider side of things. If you know of some sample source code that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it.
