    Yeah - I realized that I'd left that out and tried to add it with an update. Twice. It didn't work. Hopefully, this reply will get posted, though. :)

    Just in case, it does, here's what I was trying to add/substitute:

    # The right way to build a package; this will automatically add a vers +ion number # by reading $VERSION inside your .pm file as well as create a META.ym +l index perl Makefile.PL; make test; make dist # The fallback method, just in case; no META.yml, and you'll have to a +ppend the version tar cvzf Amazing-Perl-Extension-0.01.tgz Amazing-Perl-Extension
