POD coverage testing is easier

[ #17412 ]
I just released Test::Pod::Coverage 0.08, so that you don't have to specify the module names for your distribution.

use Test::More;
eval "use Test::Pod::Coverage 0.08";
plan skip_all => "Test::Pod::Coverage 0.08 required for testing POD coverage" if $@;

  • Now I have changed my pod_coverage.t to follow the test you outline, so now I just have to wait for Test::Pod::Coverage 0.08 at my local CPAN mirror.

    Keep up the good work,

    • It's now there on

      The big win for me is not having to remember to change the module names as I cut and paste my t/pod-coverage.t file around. I had one module where I'd cut'n'pasted the t/pod-coverage.t from WWW::Mechanize, but it was still referring to WWW::Mechanize and WWW::Mechanize::Link. It always worked for me, regardless of how bad the docs in the module were.

      Now that I think about it, I need to make sure that it ONLY looks in blib.



  • I was going to do that for that as next weeks resolution item - now I have find something else useful to do you swine :-)

    Good stuff. Yet more large number of lines to be removed from a few test scripts.
