Perrin, thank you for your input.

The advantages I see of moving groups of module files (*.pm) into module distributions are that tests would be bundled with the code they are testing, support libraries needed just during testing would be bundled in as well, and in many cases, only one or two module distributions would be required for standalone development and unit testing. It seems to me that it would be easier to have someone work on and test just one module distribution without having to understand the entire design and interactions between it and other modules.

It may well be that these advantages are outweighed by the disadvantages -- that is part of the assessement I'm currently trying to make before going very far down this path. Some disadvantages of this bundling into module distributions are that later code restructuring will become more difficult, and that additional work is needed at the very least, to setup the framework for doing module installations.

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.
