Perl Modules

mr_leisure has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Howdy folks - I have been asked to create a Perl Module based on a program i recently wrote at work. I have looked around the site for hints, but alas to no avail. So - what i need to know is some good resources for writing your very first Perl Module, or possibly something on converting to a Perl Module? As always, any response is greatly appreciated. Cheers, ML p.s. I was going to ask this in chatterbox, but my site search showed there were no questions on this, so here it is...
if ($mr_leisure) { bow; }

    There's some good advice on this in the perlmod man page and I think there's a chapter on it in "Effective Perl Programming".

    Read Effective Perl Programming, pages 177 to 195, chapter "Writing Packages and Modules".

    RTFM

    Update : Mmmh, allright, here's a link about Perl Module Mechanics - it explains everything from creating a new module with h2xs to documenting it with POD.

    There's a section in CPAN on the subject of building modules.
    Perhaps you'd find that helpful..

    There is also a good section in Programming Perl 3rd Edition on it. It tells you all you need to know about installing, writing, and storing your modules (on CPAN)and I think Damian Conway has a book on it too. Other than that, a nice search around this site and on http://google.com always provide more than enough information for me, so best of luck to ya!
