( [id://3333]=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Just as a side note, but the first line is something that I'm trying very hard to always build into the script. That is, I would rather set up via Makefile.PL or Build.PL, and let them set the shebang line up appropriately. I admit to not working out all the kinks to the point where I can do this all the time, but it may be something to think about.

One of the advantages is that you start thinking of your application as something to be distributed. You also will end up in an environment where a source-code control system (SCCS) and/or version control system (VCS) will make sense, and will be easy to use. Of course, on Linux, cvs fulfills that easily since it's usually built-in. On Windows, cvs is supposedly easy to set up (SourceForge has instructions on how to do this when accessing their cvs servers).

Another advantage is simply that you end up with a "make dist" or "./Build dist" command that wraps everything up for you.
