Where to seek input

trs80 has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I have a new module that I am working on that I will
at some point release on CPAN, but I want to get feedback
now rather then later as to features/methods before I
spend anymore time on it. I am working off previous work
I have done to create this module and have a clear idea
on how I would do it, but I don't think it will be generic
enough if I don't get more feedback. Is there a place on
Perl Monks or a mailing list that is most appropriate for
type of discussion?

Replies are listed 'Best First'.

    I hope this doesn't seem too elementary. This is as much for monks reading this as for you :)

    If the module is huge, or in several parts, use h2hs to create the shell of a distribution. The following assumes that you are not using XS or autoloading.

    h2xs -A -X -n Module::Name

    From there, write your tests (you are writing tests, right?), then update your docs, include the files in the MANIFEST file and use make dist to create a proper tarball distribution. You can post the POD output here and provide a link to the distribution. I think that would be the cleanest way for us to give good feedback (assuming monks are willing to download it and take a look).

    I guess you could post it in the Code Catacombs section of this web site for comment.

    If your just posting the module, you could put it under Snippets Section. If you want to post the module and the driver program, you should put in in Code Catacombs.
