in thread Application Testing: Custom Module or Perl Test Files?

The more general point I was making was that when making a module to help with testing some other module or application, creating it with a whole distribution skeleton (README, MANIFEST, Changes, etc.) is unnecessary, whether using Module::Starter, Extutils::ModuleMaker or h2xs or something else entirely. It's sufficient to just create a .pm file and stick it in t/ directory.

(N.B I'm the author of ExtUtils::ModuleMaker::TT, so, yes, I'm a fan of the ExtUtils::ModuleMaker school. And kudos to jkeenan1 for his recent updates!)

    heheheh.

    i've jumped on the testing team for ExtUtils::ModuleMaker, because i'd like to participate more, plus there are a few enhancements i'd like to see.

    the only reason i made my comment was that even if it can be considered "overkill" to use ExtUtils::ModuleMaker just to start testing, having that skeleton there helps one *remember* what's needed.

      I'd like to see the addition of pod-coverage.t and pod.t like in Module::Starter

      Fancy a yourname@perl.me.uk? Just ask!!!

        Why? To more easily jack up a CPANTS Kwalitee score? That's a flame/religious war just waiting to happen, with plenty of people on both sides. ExtUtils::ModuleMaker is not Module::Starter. If you really want what Module::Starter gives, then use Module::Starter.
