  • You don't have to dig deep in Module::Release to do anything. You just make a method then call it. It's easy as pie. It's even easier in the 2.x stuff that's sitting on CPAN. If you haven't looked at it in awhile, take a peek even if to just steal ideas. When I get some time, I'll steal some of your ideas.

    It's not a big deal if you write your own stuff. No one seems to use anything else that anyone writes anyway. :)

      What can I say? I may be foolish enough to reinvent the wheel, but yet I know better than not let myself be inspired by what's already there. :-)

      Ooooh, didn't know there is a 2.0 version kicking around. I'll look into that for sure. And yes, by all means, steal everything that you find interesting -- I'll be more than glad to return the favor.

      Although Module::Release also has the problem of dropping a file in each directory, the next thing on my to do list is a global config that a per-dist config would override.

      As I said in my reply to Adam, D::R already take care of that. The margin of the post was just too small to mention it explicitly. ;-)
