Hello Corion...the idea to upload a bug report is something I came up with while typing the idea into the textarea. I had not thought the idea through. I do check new, open, and resolved issues before reporting a bug. If the same bug is already reported, I usually just tack my name onto the original bug report.
The only thing I know about installing modules is I must type cpan Module::Name at the command prompt. I do not know how to read the output. I have only gotten as far as writing .pm files, since none of my work is really sharable or possibly interesting enough to be CPAN worthy. Tests are still a complete mystery to me. The last time I looked at one of the Test modules, I got lost and left it alone. I have not written a module yet which I could automate any of the testing. I have to eyeball everything. So when it comes to module tests during installation, I have not a clue what to look for in the results.
I promise to be as good a girl as I can be when reporting bugs when I get won't install without force.
