Since there are probably a lot of people that mirror CPAN, but are not official mirrors, here is an email recently posted on the CPAN mirrors admin list:

Subject: North American CPAN mirrors

(All non-North American CPAN mirror admins are free to ignore this message.)

If you are mirroring from

the admin of the CPAN mirror told us that they have nowadays a Really Big Pipe to the Internet, and that they could easily handle more download traffic. Therefore you might to try whether you could get better mirroring bandwidth from than from, and if you do, you could switch over to (At the same time I think we could also increase the mirroring frequency of itself.)

In addition to this, I should also note that even though we aren't listed as having rsync available yet, you can rsync the entire CPAN archive from ''. is now mirroring funet several times a day.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
