Wasn't sure where else to post this. . . it's an offsite link to something that wasn't authored by me :P Perhaps to outside links?

Sherzod Ruzmetov (of CGI::Session fame) recently posted Preparing a CPAN distribution to his blog. While pretty introductory, it clearly explains the basics of packaging and preparing a module to be submitted to CPAN. Augment this with some of the knowledge of h2xs accumulated here at the monstery and you should have an excellent understanding of the matter. Personally, I found this to be an excellent tutorial.

If you're a new submitter to CPAN, or would like to submit a module but aren't quite sure where to start, give this tutorial a look and save yourself some time and frustration.

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.
