in reply to PAUSE problem

Please see How do I compose an effective node title? while you use PAUSE to publish code on the CPAN, your problem is not with PAUSE :)

Ok, now to your actual code, the official way to store templates, defaults ... is with File::ShareDir (See also File::ShareDir::Install)

Besides __PACKAGE__, there is also __FILE__ and __LINE__, see http://perldoc.perl.org/perldata.html#Special-Literals

    Since I didn't know that the problem was not with PAUSE until the node mentioning the patch, I'm not sure that the title wasn't accurate at that point in time. Vague perhaps, but still accurate. A quibble and your point is taken. More importantly I had not known about the modules you mention and find that very useful--- thanks! Don't understand the last line though; what did you have in mind?

    --hsm

    "Never try to teach a pig to sing...it wastes your time and it annoys the pig."

      Nothing important, just hoops. Instead of

      my $mod = __PACKAGE__; $mod =~ s{::}{/}g; $mod .= '.pm'; $mod = $INC{$mod}; $mod =~ s/EPD\.pm//i; my $module_dir_qfn = realpath($mod); my $db_dir_qfn = catdir($module_dir_qfn, 'db');
      You might have used
      realpath( catfile( __FILE__, updir(), 'db' ) );
        It took a bit of head bashing, but this:
        my $db_dir_qfn = realpath( catfile( __PACKAGE__, updir(), 'db' ) );
        seems to do the trick nicely. Love getting rid of lines of code for one--- particularly when the lines gone look more like the much maligned perl line noise! Thanks for the suggestion.

      I probably should have phrased that better, thanks :)

      With the information contained in your question, and the guidance of How do I compose an effective node title?, effective titles might be:

      • FAIL Chess-PGN-EPD-0.25 v5.12.3 MirOS BSD
      • tester fail cpansmoke/perl-5.12.3/cpan/build/Chess-PGN-EPD-0.25
      • Chess-PGN-EPD-0.25/t/01_epdcode.t Non-zero exit status
      • Chess-PGN-EPD-0.25/t/01_epdcode.t Parse errors: Bad plan
      • Chess-PGN-EPD-0.25 Failed 7/8 test programs
      • problem testing Chess-PGN-EPD-0.25
      • Chess-PGN-EPD-0.25 subtest not run on MirOS BSD
      "PAUSE problem" makes me think there is a bug PAUSE
