Oh, if it were only limited to CPAN modules. Once upon a time, there was a thread about favorite Perl core dumps. If I hadn't bumped into that thread, there would still be an additional five core dumps that would not yet have been fixed.


Test your modules with bleadperl!

  rsync -avz rsync://public.activestate.com/perl-current/ .
  ./Configure -des -Dusedevel -Dprefix=/path/to/test/perl
  make test
  make install

Now, please test you modules! If you have test failures that don't happen with Perl 5.8.8, send a simplified test case to

[stevieb]: I really dislike how perlbrew doesn't list your version of perl if a newer minor version bump has happened. eg: I use 5.24.1, but 5.24.2 is available, hiding my 5.24.1. I may look at this, as I made it display correctly in berrybrew in cases like this
[stevieb]: choroba just gleaned your post about Module::Starter. I use it too, pretty much for every dist I write
[LanX]: I remeber M::S (it was dialog driven?) to be buggy
[stevieb]: As far as Dist::Zilla goes, I don't like installing that other than on systems my test platorm runs on. I find it too heavy. I prefer being able to glean a Makefile.PL
[LanX]: what's frustrating me is that a distribution has lots of dupplicated info
[stevieb]: LanX I don't know if it's dialog driven; I just use it in the simplest of terms (just run module-starter at the CLI, and the very last couple of lines are how I use it.
[stevieb]: which dist are you speaking of regarding dups, LanX?
