in reply to There's a level in Hell reserved for ________

Paraphrasing Dante Alighieri's Inferno:

Limbo ring: where virtuos but non-Perl coders live

Lustful ring: those who betrayed reason to their appetite

Gluttonous ring: those who programmed in excesses and reinvent wheels

Avaricious and the Prodigal level: those who wasted, programmed greedily and insatiably

Wrathful and the Gloomy ring: those who give crude and vindictive answers

Heretics level: those who failed to believe in Perl and Perl 6

Suicides levels: those who gave up programming Perl

Fraudulence and Malice level (pimps, hypocrites, simonists, barraters, magicians, diviners, seducers, fortune tellers, panderers): marketing people

The final circle of Hell: betrayers to those in which we should be forever faithful: God, Family and Perl :)

Ciao, Valerio

[haukex]: But that module I just linked to assumes that most verbatim blocks are runnable code, I have other modules where that's not the case, so there I just copy-and-paste the synopsis into the author tests...
[haukex]: not the most efficient, but then again, I don't have that many modules on CPAN :-)
[Corion]: haukex: Yes, but if it's only supposed to run on my machine, I can be far more liberal with how I extract the code etc.
[Corion]: haukex: Yes - I see the benefit of using Dist::Zilla for people with 150+ modules on CPAN, but I don't see it for myself, and I'm always put off from contributing to such modules because they require a lot of toolchain setup that I don't want to ...
[Corion]: ... spend time on if I only want to provide a short patch
[haukex]: Corion: Yes exactly, in the author tests I don't worry about portability as much, I also don't list the author tests' dependencies in Makefile.PL
[haukex]: I figure someone who wants to contribute will know how to install the missing modules ;-) Not the nicest way to go but I don't think many people are using my modules yet
