in reply to Test the Pod of your files

If you want something completely general you should check under blib rather than lib, since the Makefile.PL could run a filter on the source (not really an issue if you don't do that - but you never know :-). It also might be easier to just base it on Test::Builder instead of pulling in Test:More.

You might want to take a glance at pod.t and documented.t (part of the tests for Test::Class and Test::Exception) written before Test::Pod was around.

They're a little hacky but seem to work a fair number of places (see for the full list).

pod.t does basically what Test::Pod does, but searches for all modules in the specified directories, rather than being given an explicit list.

documented.t uses Pod::Coverage to check that the POD actually documents the code in the module. Again, it searches for modules rather than being given an explicit list.
