Parse::CPAN::Meta requires the caller to indicate whether a meta file to be parsed is in JSON or YAML, either by calling an appropriate function or by having the type indicated in the filename. In fact, .meta files on CPAN can be either, with no indication in the filename. P:C:M ought to have an interface that autodetects based on content. -zefram
