Sometimes you are evaluating several modules that all seem to solve the same problem but each does it in its own slightly different way. It is frustrating to have to drop down to a shell, fire up cpan[m] and install all of them. What's worse is now you have those modules forever since it is a pain to then go in and remove them. Wouldn't it be nice to try out modules without having to install them? This is where MetaCPAN and CloudPAN come to the rescue.
