Subject: Add Win32::Daemon

Win32::Daemon has never been packaged for the CPAN. It was for a long time somewhat proprietary, but the code is now available under a clear license. The source code is now hosted in the libwin32 project: http://code.google.com/p/libwin32/source/browse/#svn/trunk/Win32-Daemon -- Olivier Mengué - http://o.mengue.free.fr/

I see that there is a module by Dave Roth named Win32::Daemon on the CPAN, but not indexed because the file and the distribution names mismatch. » http://search.cpan.org/dist/Win32-Scheduler/ (And I see you already added a review about it) Show quoted text

In fact, Win32::Daemon was already listed in Module::ThirdParty, as part of Dave Roth's modules. I've created a new entry to point to the new source location. Thanks -- Sébastien Aperghis-Tramoni Close the world, txEn eht nepO.

The Win32::Daemon which is published on CPAN is not Win32::Daemon. search.cpan.org indexed the following file as Win32::Daemon due to the embedded POD: http://search.cpan.org/dist/Win32-Scheduler/lib/Win32/Scheduler.PM However, as you can from the filename, this is not Win32::Daemon but instead Win32::Scheduler. If you look further in the source code, you'll see that the package in this file is also Win32::Scheduler. In fact the problem is that this module has the documentation of Win32::Daemon embedded instead of Win32::Scheduler. So there is no Win32::Daemon on CPAN. See also my posts about Win32::Daemon on the Mongueurs mailing list. -- Olivier Mengué - http://o.mengue.free.fr/
