( [id://3333] : superdoc . print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

As I've never written a CPAN module I cannot give you any advice on the "process", however, as a recent convert to perl and an avid supporter I'd like to offer my experience as a CPAN hunter....

If I search for a module the MOST important thing in determining between two modules is the last update / version. The one with the latest updates usually gets the first try. Call me fickle, but there is something that draws me towards actively maintained modules.

Also, as I tend to code for Winblows so having an Activestate PPMx clinches it for me.


Hope this helps.

Title:
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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
