( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

This is a big help, thank you!

Your answer brings up a question however. Do I need to do anything special in my package to specify the package name without the name of the pm file? In other words when I submit Device::LG::QuickMemoPlus::Extract.pm the folder structure in lib/ stops at QuickMemoPlus. Does that tell CPAN what the top level package is?

I'm planning to use Minilla to help me make the build file so I was hoping it would handle these things. Maybe this would be a good place to start a new thread for help with Minilla when I get stuck.

Update:

After looking through the modules in the Device namespace I noticed that they are modules used for interfacing to devices. I'm starting to think the Data namespace as others have suggested might be better. It would be nice to have the option of using the module to find the device and get the extract files directly instead of requiring the user to move them somewhere first. I'm going to wait for a few days to let it percolate before I try to upload anything.

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.
