in reply to More Developed modules

CPAN version numbers only mean two things. First, larger numbers are newer. Second, numbers with underscores represent "alpha" versions. Unfortunately, it's not clear what "alpha" means.

Trying to divine any deeper meaning from a version number is a futile exercise in mind reading and sorcery.

    Thanks chromatic. What is the more useful way to find mature/ more developed modules?

      Read the reviews, look at the testers reports, see what depends on those modules, ask your local Perl mongers or PerlMonks or a Perl mailing list.
