in reply to What does this ABSTRACT warning from MakeMaker mean?

The ExtUtils::MakeMaker man page mentions this:

ABSTRACT_FROM Name of the file that contains the package description. MakeM +aker looks for a line in the POD matching /^($pack­age\s-\s)(.*)/. Th +is is typically the first line in the "=head1 NAME" section. $2 becom +es the abstract.

MakeMaker wants to use the NAME section of your module's POD to generate an abstract. Visit the perlpod page for more information on POD.

    Remove the spaces from in front of the module name in the NAME section.

    e.g. WRONG:

    =head1 NAME App::Btree - Native perl implimentation of Btree structure
    Right:-
    =head1 NAME App::Btree - Native perl implimentation of Btree structure
