Task::MetaSyntactic - All Acme::MetaSyntactic themes at once
cpan Task::MetaSyntactic cpanp -i Task::MetaSyntactic cpanm Task::MetaSyntactic
Acme::MetaSyntactic is a module designed to fill all your metasyntactic needs. There was a weekly update with new themes on CPAN between January 15, 2005 and November 6, 2006.
Since version 0.99, the weekly uploads of the module have stopped, while I took some rest. I've also been looking for a better way to distribute the core modules and the themes themselves.
However, some users of Acme::MetaSyntactic desperately needed new themes to be added, and grew tired of waiting for me. So, in a JFDI way, they started to upload their own themes on CPAN.
On May 7, 2012, after a hiatus of five and a half years, Acme::MetaSyntactic is back, in a shiny version 1.000. The main
Acme-MetaSyntactic distribution contains the core modules and a single theme, while all "historical" themes now live in the
The Test::MetaSyntactic module included in the main distribution aims at simplifying the test and distribution of new themes by individual authors.

Because the only logical thing to do with Acme::MetaSyntactic was obviously an IRC bot. This bot was part of the
#perlfr bot menagerie for eight years, until it was replaced by the new kid on the block.

Because there's more than one way to do it, and it's easier to write new code than patch old code, this bot does what Bot::MetaSyntactic did, with better support for themes with sub-categories, and the ability to grep for items.
The bot hangs out on
#p5p on irc://irc.perl.org/.
