( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??
Maybe this should be a meditation? I've checked on CPAN and discovered that maybe I didn't need to be worried about reinventing the wheel, as no Dice (or Die) modules have been submitted there.

Is it worth submitting this there? I'm not too clear on the how-to etc., but I can always RTFM on http://www.cpan.org, though other pointers gratefully received.

But the bigger question is should I? I'm not too worried about replicating functionality in Dice::Dice because it is so different a problem area it's looking at, but would it be common practise to check with the author of RPG::Dice (Syrkres) before submitting?

Update: Thanks Ovid, I've now read the FAQ and requested a PAUSE id! I think that when it comes to actually preparing a distribution a question or 2 to Perlmonks might be in order..

Cheerio!
