While there are already several tutorials on the creation of Modules for CPAN. I have found precious little with regard to the creation, and publishing of Perl scripts to/on CPAN. In fact, I wasn't even able to find any information in PAUSE, or the PAUSE tutorial/documentation itself.
Well. Several Module authors have written, and uploaded their scripts to CPAN. Few of them are officially published. While a few authors have created Modules/Scripts to more easily accomplish the task of creating, registering a script on CPAN. I could only find 2, that were even close to finished. I looked closely at one, with the intention of completing it for him. But the farther I got into it, the more I felt I could do better job -- well, at least a different job. Because TMTOWTDI :)
So why not just create your version, and point would-be script authors to that, instead of writing a tutorial?Good question. But as I just noted; TMTOWTDI.
So. Before I embark on this would-be CPAN-script-author tutorial. I'd like to see if Monks, and the like, would even be interested in my creating this for the Tutorials section at the Monastery.
Please let me know.
