Due Diligence

The first step to finding stuff on CPAN is to try to use the MetaCPAN search engine, which has many measures for facilitating finding high quality stuff, including upvotes, ratings, comments, links to the bug trackers and many other resources, and many more.

Ask for Recommendations

If in doubt, you can try asking for recommendations on an internet forum such as Freenode’s #perl chat room.
