CPAN Sidekick

Browse Perl documentation

Every super Perl developer needs a sidekick. Ask a Perl developer what her favorite feature of the language is and chances are good that the answer is CPAN. CPAN Sidekick brings all the great information and documentation of the Comprehensive Perl Archive Network to your phone.

  • Search for CPAN modules
  • See search results with the author's picture, module abstract, ratings, and favorites
  • Tap on individual results to see the documentation for that module
  • Tap on the module header on documentation to see the release details
  • Follow links within the documentation to see the documentation for other modules
  • Any link to something other than a module will work, but will go to a browser, even if that link is within CPAN
  • Two panel view for tablets
