Here's what I like to see in a module on CPAN:
  • An easy installation procedure, preferably the standard `perl; make; make test; make install`. make test should test the features of the module.
  • Documentation, including a README file and standard POD in the module itself.
  • Configurability, as appropriate. Your module, for example, depends on /usr/dict/words. The person using your module may need to or want to specify an alternate file to use. (*)
One comment specifically about your module... I notice that you set @Anagram::EXPORT, but you don't have an import() sub. You might want to change @EXPORT to @EXPORT_OK and inherit Exporter's import() method.

(*) On some systems, /usr/dict/words includes Unix terms and includes only root forms of regular words, which is not good for word puzzles.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
