The making of a module

[ #8017 ]

I converted the CRLF newlines to Unix using UltraEdit. The MakeMaker docs seems a bit vague:

  make tardist

  First does a distdir. Then a command $(PREOP)
  which defaults to a null command, followed by
  $(TOUNIX), which defaults to a null command
  under UNIX, and will convert files in
  distribution directory to UNIX format otherwise.

Ok, and on Windows where it's useful to do it? Can't find anywhere where it does something at all.

Also, I'd like to provide HTML versions of the POD in the .pm and .pod files in a ./html/ dir. I find that useful in modules I check out.

Is there no "standard" way of doing that, or have I missed something?

I guess everything will be straightforward once I've gone through the process and lost my fresh eyes.
