( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I always copy one of the "most appropriate" other modules file structures of CPAN modules that I have and start making changes to that. At least that way it has all of the specifics that I need in my modules (e.g. copyright notice).

I think it is all about discipline, whether you use h2xs or your own solution.

One tip I've picked up from an article Johan Vromans wrote long ago: I have a "src" directory that contains all the sources of all modules that I work on. For each CPAN uploadable distribution I have a seperate directory structure. The .pm files in there are actually symlinks to the appropriate files in the "src" directory. This allows you to work from the distribution or from your "src" directory, whichever is more convenient to you at the time.

Title:
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 or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
