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

I come to you seeking advice to help choose a module starter system, specifically for production quality / CPAN-destined code. I'm especially interested in good or bad experiences, comparisons and reasons that one is good or bad. I'm just hoping to get a general sense of what the perlmonks crowd thinks, whether there is disagreement or consensus.

I'm aware of the following choices:

  • h2xs
  • ExtUtils::ModuleMaker
  • Module::Start
  • Module::Starter (which appears to have many plugins / modes, and is used in Acme::CreatingCPANModules)

I'm sure I've missed some, but I hope I get the point across. Please let me know if I've missed the Best one. What do you use? Why?

thank you

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.
