Quite "hacky" but I enjoyed reading the thread - too bad I didn't find it before pestering you monks.

I forgot to say (my bad) that lately I like to keep my POD in a separate .pod file, so that modules come to be tighter when I do a fatpack-like operation (without the need to do the stripping on the fly, which is mangling the file's contents, which always makes me feel nervous. This is another story though).

The testing alternative proposed by tinita in Re: Don't Repeat Your version number has the advantage of forcing me to update the version number in the POD, which is something that really happens only at release time so it's no big deal actually. On the other hand, I'm really lazy and I'm using automatic update in the Perl sources already (so much for my nervousness), so a simple automation on the POD is already below the threshold of what I'm implicitly inclined to accept.

All in all, I'm getting from the feedbacks to this thread that a few people find value in keeping VERSION in POD too, which is good to know by itself.

perl -ple'$_=reverse' <<<ti.xittelop@oivalf

Io ho capito... ma tu che hai detto?

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