I have found some nodes on the subject of creating CPAN packages, using the h2xs program, but none of them really got into the specific details of the matter. Now I know that there are several monks out there, who have contributed to CPAN, and therefore, are probably familiar with the process of using h2xs. I personally would like to see a tutorial cover the basics and maybe describe how they went throught the process of using the files that are created by the h2xs program.

In the end, there can be only one!

Edit by tye to remove many <BR>s

UPDATE: Taking merlyn's advice, I went through both perlmod and perlmodlib, plus I re-read this node by jeffa which answered another question I had. As soon as I can formulate the appropriate questions, I will update this node again.

UPDATE 2Thanks to $code or die for the link to perlnewmod (it answered my few remaining questions), and for the idea of getting Damian's book. I will probably pick it up this weekend.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
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.
