in reply to gzipped tarballs, CPAN, winzip, and all that

This may sound a bit silly but I use a make dist and one line in Makefile.PL to do that archiving for me.
use ExtUtils::MakeMaker; #yada yada WriteMakefile( 'NAME' => 'Foo::Bar', 'VERSION_FROM' => 'Bar.pm', # finds $VERSION 'PREREQ_PM' => {}, # e.g., Module::Name => 1.1 ($] >= 5.005 ? ## Add these new keywords supported since 5.005 (ABSTRACT_FROM => 'Bar.pm', # retrieve abstract from module AUTHOR => '') : ()), 'dist' => {COMPRESS=>'gzip',SUFFIX=>'gz'}, );
After a perl Makefile.PL, I just make dist and run to PAUSE to upload the tarball.

HTH

    I get "unknown command make" from the command prompt. The NMAKE that comes with the Microsoft C++ compiler is so unlike make (they kind of missed the point; it doesn't do forward-chaining logic if I recall) that I don't think it would work. What 'make' do you use on a Windows system?

      If you have Windows versions of tar and gzip on your path then "nmake dist" will work with the Makefile.PL file shown by Beatnik.

[Discipulus]: who make the invitation? the program?!?
[choroba]: it's historical
[erix]: pull requests
[choroba]: originally, you sent a pull request to someone by email, i.e. you asked them to pull from your repo
[Discipulus]: if is the author of a patch, is more like a 'request to push' into rather than a pull request..
[choroba]: as it's considered unpolite to push to someone else's repo
[choroba]: and in fact, you don't push into the target repo, you push into your branch of your fork
[choroba]: the maintainer of the upstream repo than "merges" the pull request, i.e. they pull from your fork into the upstream
[Discipulus]: ' i.e. you asked them to pull from your repo' =~ I (subj) want to push
[Discipulus]: chorobayour words are reasonable
