In my Date::Manip module, I have a script that I use to automatically generate the timezone modules (including POD). Although I include the script in the distribution for the sake of completeness, it is never installed and is not strictly part of the module.
If you go to CPAN (http://search.cpan.org/~sbeck/Date-Manip-6.12/
) and scroll to the bottom, you'll see (in the Documentation section) an obviously broken entry named Date::Manip::TZ::$module which refers to the internal script.
I've tried 'disguising' the strings that I think would trigger the CPAN indexer, but I only get one try per release, and so far, I haven't figured it out, so perhaps someone who is CPAN clueful can answer me. Can someone tell me exactly what criteria are used by the CPAN indexer to determine that something is a POD document? Alternately, if you point me to the actual scripts that do the indexing, I'll be happy to figure it out myself. I just want the indexer to ignore the internal script.
