The lib file looks nice but it is not associated with the bin.

What do you mean "not associated with the bin"?

I did some testing using the Perl installation on my system.

On my system, I have Perl installed in /opt - like this:

/opt/perl/bin lib site/bin site/lib

In site/bin there is corelist. I added a dummy corelist.pod in site/lib

Opening a xterm in my home directory, I ran perldoc corelist and got the rendering of the dummy .pod file instead of the POD in corelist

So, perldoc can find a .pod file in the library of a Perl installation.

Maybe the Makefile.PL needs to be customized to install the .pod files in lib/ instead of lib/module/path/

If CPAN and/or MetaCPAN are not displaying the .pod files in the lib/ directory of your module archive, then I think that is a bug with CPAN / MetaCPAN, since perldoc does display them as expected.</c>
