in reply to Donít Repeat YourÖ version number

i also thought about that, and in the past i have tried several techniques. i found that it all seems to be too much work. i'm now using:

my $version_pod = <<'=cut'; =pod =head1 NAME Foo.:Bar - blah =head1 VERSION $VERSION = "0.71" =cut our $VERSION = "0.71"; ... sub __test_version { my $v = __PACKAGE__->VERSION; return 1 if $version_pod =~ m/VERSION.*\Q$v/; return; }
and then i have a test that calls the __test_version() method.
this way i have to type the version twice, but hey, that's ok. the point is, i can't forget it as my testsuite would fail.

additionally, Test::Pod fails with your hack. =)

    Thatís a nice idea. Complete automation would be better, but if the computer traps forgetfulness, thatís almost as good.
