in reply to Submitting A Module To CPAN

Please do note RhetTbulls advice on not doing it!

If you do want to go on, then first read tachyons excellent description of how to package a module in How to make a CPAN Module Distribution, then follow ignatz and rozallins advice and read CPAN's PAUSE information page. - also referred to in the CPAN FAQ.

But please consider not doing it unless you really have to!

    I think it is not the best advice to recomend against uploading to CPAN. Many programmers are a bit shy when it comes to releasing their code to public and they often undervalue it. I suggest to post here this code for review and let other Perl monks to judge. Maybe it much more useful than Cody Pendant says and it deserves its right to be on CPAN.

    In short: when in doubt about releasing your code on CPAN post it here for review and let Perl monks to tear it apart :)
