    Would like to see all CPAN modules available with a 1-liner


    Hello,
    I was going through the site cpan.org.
    Is there a page in the site which displays all the available modules with a 1-liner on what it does.

    I saw the page http://www.cpan.org/modules/01modules.index.html which provides listing in alphabetical order, but this doesn't tell me what the module does. I was looking for a listing like
    Spreadsheet::WriteExcel - to write to excel files
    Spreadsheet::ParseExcel - to read content of excel files.. and so on.

    I saw this as well, http://www.cpan.org/modules/00modlist.long.html but hmm, is this is the entire list? I'm asking because I think I remember seeing a much better list of all modules once(with much better UI ) and forgot to bookmark it.

    Thanks.

    Well, there are so many modules that a complete list will be hard to read. And if you take only a selection, you have to trust the person who made the selection.
