It’s with sad hearts that we are announcing that search.cpan.org will be retired on the 25th of June 2018.Graham Barr originally wrote the site nearly 20 years ago — it first went live in early 1999 — and it quickly became an invaluable resource for Perl developers around the world.The ability to search CPAN (Comprehensive Perl Archive Network) and read Perl module documentation online helped spark many developers interest in Perl and helped to build the Perl community.The site was originally hosted by Washington University in St. Louis on a single Solaris box. For his work on search.cpan.org, Graham won a White Camel award in 2002.The site was later moved to the Perl NOC.

These amazing people and companies helped make the site a success.In recent years maintenance
