  • Well, that's a heck of a tricky failure.

    As the culprit (as it were), I would suggest the following:

    • Pod::HTML -- needs to do something smarter with things it doesn't understand. Report that as a bug.
    • Module::Build -- probably shouldn't let HTML errors be fatal. Report that as a bug.
    • Your Pod doesn't render well on search.cpan.org either -- you should probably try a different construct anyway, e.g.:

    =item 0

    This is item 0

    =item 1

    This is item 1

    And so on.

    Use the pod2html preview [cpan.org] to see how it l

    • Hmmm, the POD does not even render as expected viewing perldoc.


              These are the different values:

              =over 4

              =item * 0

              Game is over

              =item * 1

              full card (the default)


      Renders to:

              These are the different values:

              o Game is over

              o 1

             
      • Looks like someone is testing the string following the bullet with something like if ( $headline ) as opposed to if ( defined $headline and length $headline ). Check what happens if you say =item * Z<>0.

        (In 5.12, the need for the defined will go away because length undef will silently return undef rather than warning and returning 0.)

        But I agree with David that you should not put a bullet and headline on the =item line.
