Well, I didn't actually run the code myself. Thought I'd share what I did in case it helps others.

I just cut and pasted the OP's code into Padre. It marked the last two lines of code as having issues. When I moved my mouse over the next to last line, Padre showed the same error message that the OP listed. However, that line looked correct to me.

Here's the key part. From past experience, I figured that if the line that is indicated as having issues by the Perl interpreter, then I needed to check the line(s) before it. In my code, the cause has usually been missing semi-colon or I had opened a closure (single quotes, double quotes, square bracket, etc.) and failed to close the closure. Those two kinds of mistakes usually has caused the Perl interpreter to complain about an incorrect line number in my code.

Anyways, when I started checking the other lines of code, that's when I noticed the missing semi-colon.

[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?
[LanX]: readme version number and so on ...
[stevieb]: with M::S, you can also add other tags, but defaults work... such as --license=perl --eumm
