h2xs is terrible for creating the standard module directory structure, because that's all it does, and it doesn't create tests in the current best format. That's why I created Module::Starter.

You should use h2xs ONLY if you're using XS.

    Indeed. h2xs was certainly best practice back when it was the only tool available. But if I were writing "Object Oriented Perl" today, I'd definitely be recommending Module::Starter instead.

    And, in fact, in the book I am writing today ("Perl Best Practices") I do recommend Module::Starter.



      May I ask when the tenative release date is?

        We're aiming for late July or the first week of August (i.e. launching it at OSCON).
