Thanks for your response! Replies to this node suggest that h2xs is outdated. As I point out in my post, I tried Minilla, and had some issues with it.

I spent a few hours Friday night figuring out what was wrong, and determined that my MANIFEST file was incomplete. I also discovered that the POD Coverage tool fails to find POD in the named module under the lib directory -- once I'd added use lib './lib' to the test, it just worked. I've learned a lot.

I've also figured out that my man page for the module is deficient -- I include a command line tool with the module, but I don't mention it at all in the POD, so I have to fix that omission. I've written a script to automate building a release (of course) and I copy files from the module directory into the CPAN directory if they're absent, but I don't do a cp -u $src $dest as I should. (Tangent -- I wrote a REXX script to do that on OS/2 in the early 90's. It was super useful.)

The journey continues.

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
