Re: What do I use to release a module to CPAN for the first time?

Minilla is probably a very good place to start.

Use minil new to create a new distribution in a blank new directory called "Fancy-Open". See the getting started section of the documentation.

Then copy your existing module, pod, and tests, overwriting the ones which Minilla created for you. Edit the "cpanfile" file to show your project's dependencies.

That should be about it.

It is an easy and fast process once you get the hang of it, but releasing a distribution which will actually upload okay and people will be able to install without issues is a STEEP learning curve to start off. If you upload a file that gets loads of fails on CPAN testers, don't panic — you can just bump the version number and upload again. Just keep coming back for advice and you'll get there!
