in reply to If it is not a core module, then what is it?

Well, it depends...

A core module is one that is shipped along side the perl source/binary. A non-core module would, obviously, be any other module. However, some core modules lead dual lives on CPAN. These modules, once they have newer versions released to CPAN, will later be re-integrated back into the core.

A third-party module would encompass, i believe, not only all modules found on CPAN, but those shipped with other applications or available for download elsewhere (such as sourceforge).

I hope that makes sense. :) -- someone please correct me if i'm wrong.

    Almost.
    Core modules come with the perl sources and reside in archlib ("perl -V:archlib").
    They (like perl) are maintained by the perl5-porters.

[stevieb]: I found that win10 broke a C# library I was using for one project while enhancing tests for a Perl dist, which breaks other Perl dists, and I'm about to throw my hands up on berrybrew. win2k12 broke one thing, win10 breaks something...
[stevieb]: ...unrelated which requires replacing a lot of code and a whole lib. I'm about to go nix only ffs
[shmem]: stevieb: what you're doing sounds afwully complex. Too much for me this evening to provide brighter insight ;-)
[stevieb]: I don't even own a Windows computer. Both my girl and I have a laptop each with Linux. I'm supporting Windows in some of my projects and I can't even guage whether it's worth it or not.
[stevieb]: shmem It's something I desired to have years ago, which is why I took over berrybrew. Cross-platform build/test automation locally, or over the network Test::BrewBuild
[shmem]: sounds good.
[shmem]: but I'm crumbling smaller stones. remember...
[stevieb]: I'm working on it to fatten it up and make it more reliant so I can finalize my Raspberry Pi automated build system for that software :) It's all well and fun, until I try to make it work with Windows lol
