Re: What is the use of /corpus folder in a CPAN distribution (body)by Anonymous Monk

What goes in a /corpus folder of a cpan module
Nothing:) anything you want :)
Funny though that Test::Kwalitee::Extra seems to look for it, (although it doesn't fail if the folder is not found).
Funny, "corpus" doesn't occur anywhere inside that module
This directory contains a set of distributions used by testing. Since the distributions contain *.t files, it's easier to put them outside of ./t so that recursive test harnesses do not try running their dists.
So you have the tests convention of t/ and xt/ for extra/author tests,
and now , instead of using https://metacpan.org/module/ExtUtils::MakeMaker#test option,
one guy, created a corpus directory instead of having a body or nottest or notsharedir or junk or stuff or extraextradatafiles namedliketest-butshouldntberun-or-installed
I am struggling to understand what goes in there
chilax :) give up :)
Maybe it should be added to the aforementioned thread but I can't post to it myself as its under perl meditation section.
