Module updates

[ #28701 ]

I've started an overhaul of my current CPAN modules. I've already upgraded them all to use Module::Build. I've washed them through Perltidy using PBP guidelines, and added extra tests and cleaned up the docs.

I now feel slightly more productive...

  • Please make sure that all your Module::Build modules have compatibility Makefile.PLs, because there are still big problems occuring with distributions that only have a Build.PL.

    Probably be another 6 months till these problems are resolved.
    • The older modules already have old style Makefiles, and I have no plans to remove them. While it's a pain maintaining two sets, I agree that it's a worth while thing to do. I belive that Module::Build has tools to automatically make and maintain a Makefile for you.

  • You can run it like Perltidy against your modules and it will spit out where you deviate from PBP. I use it on my stuff and it is pretty cool.
    • Thanks, that's a useful suggestion. Will give that a go too! At the moment I'm using Module::Build's testcover to improve my test coverage, currently at 77% on the first module to test.
