If that's the case, then the entire distro is broken because I am missing the /lib/RandomJungle directory. I'll repackage it and release another version. Hopefully that does the trick. :-)

Thanks for the help!

Update: Version 0.03 has been uploaded and should be pushed to my CPAN directory soon. If anyone would like to give it a quick look, I'd appreciate it.

    From what I can tell by your CPAN layout, your directory structure should look like this:

    lib /RandomJungle /File |- |- |- |- /Tree |- |- |- |-

    Congrats on your first upload btw! For me, it was a stressful thing to do, and it took me a very long time and very much research before my first one :)

    Update: Let us know when you've got it updated and I'll install and test it.

      Close. It should be:

      lib /RandomJungle <= note spelling /File |- |- |- |- /Tree |- |- |- |-

      Thanks for the congrats. There is definitely a learning curve involved. I've been creating private modules for local use for years, but this is the first time I've tried to package one up for public release.

      FWIW, I used ExtUtils::ModuleMaker to create the stubs and then copied my files into the structure. For some reason I assumed the parent directory (RandomJungle) was taken from the name of the distro and /lib contained everything in that virtual directory. As I said above, I added the parent dir into /lib and re-released. Fingers crossed. :-)

      I also tested the packaged dist locally before I uploaded it to PAUSE, but I think the other files in my path were helping the tests to pass when they should have failed.

      Update: Thanks very much for offering to test the dist! The new release (ver 0.03) hasn't been pushed from the PAUSE FTP directory into my CPAN dir as of this post, but it should show up soon.

        After downloading the tarball of v0.03:

        steve@ubuntu:~/devel/RandomJungle-0.03$ make test PERL_DL_NONLAZY=1 /usr/bin/perl "-MExtUtils::Command::MM" "-e" "test_h +arness(0, 'blib/lib', 'blib/arch')" t/*.t t/DB_01.t ......... ok t/Jungle_01.t ..... ok t/OOB_01.t ........ ok t/RAW_01.t ........ ok t/Tree_01.t ....... ok t/Tree_02.t ....... ok t/Tree_Node_01.t .. ok t/XML_01.t ........ ok All tests successful. Files=8, Tests=1346, 6 wallclock secs ( 0.29 usr 0.05 sys + 5.04 cu +sr 0.71 csys = 6.09 CPU) Result: PASS

        However, I had to install DBM::Deep and XML::Twig, so you might want to throw them into the PREREQ_PM in your Makefile.PL

        I too have written hundreds of modules, but only have a few on CPAN. Over the years I used h2xs, but lately I've been testing out Module::Starter's command line util to build my skeleton.

        I've also recently found the cpan-upload binary installed via CPAN::Uploader to be very handy... no need to visit PAUSE at all :)

        Later on this afternoon when I get back in, I'll let you know how my install and tests go of your module.
