  • This is as good a place as any, I suspect, to ask for that sort of review. I, for one, would be interested in seeing some general writeup at the top of the module about its purpose, usage and suchlike.
  • Try posting on comp.lang.perl.modules. There are three things for which you could seek review
    1. The module name. Proposed module names should also be submitted to for review.
    2. The API. Best way to do this is to post the POD.
    3. The code itself. If it is big, consider posting a URL to the sources, rather than the sources themselves. You might also give some indication of what aspects you want feedback on, e.g. general coding style, algorithms, integration with other facilities, specific techinica

  • I posted my last module on Perl Monks [] with good response. A handful of other people have solicited feedback there. (The best response so far was to Filter::FileHandle, I believe. Good module, good discussion.)
  • I might as well toss a link here for folks to look at then. I've been working on a word game in perl (the guts are in a module so they can be used to produce multiple front ends). You can find the whole ball of wax at []. If you just want to see the module [], you can do that to.
