After 15 minutes or so I passed all the built-in tests, noticing that a "coverage" test was skipped I wasn't quite filled with the sense of accomplishment I was after. I quickly installed the dependent Pod::Coverage and soon became aware to what a naked subroutine was.
30 minutes after that I was now passing all the built-in tests for my distribution that come with module-starter.
I was then able to leave my cube with a sense of success
Module::Starter is awesome. It has done a great job of holding my hand through the development of a real module distribution I hope to release to the CPAN.
I'm working my way through Perl Testing by Ian Langworth and chromatic in parallel with Sam Tregar's Writing Perl Modules for CPAN.
This next month will truly be a leaning experience for me. Getting into developing in a more ridged and structured way has really been fun.
