The other part of that is to be a tester for the CPAN. Check out http://testers.cpan.org and sign up to be a CPAN tester. You'll get an email each time a module is uploaded to the CPAN. Try to install a module, and send the results to the CPAN with a handy-dandy little script. It adds a few seconds after each time you install a module, and it helps the authors know what works and doesn't.

I've been doing it for about a year now. It's certainly not as useful as Chromatic going and writing up bunches of tests for key modules, but then again, if people don't run those tests, what good are they?

Title:
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 or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
