Whenever starting another Perl project, the very first command you should run better be the following:
$ module-starter --module=My::Module --author="[your-name]" \ --email=[your-email] --builder=Module::Install
This provides the developer with a basic environment for writing solid Perl code, e.g. a new directory called
My-Module with all the good stuff ready for use:
MANIFEST README ignore.txt Makefile.PL Changes lib/My/Module.pm t/pod-coverage.t t/pod.t t/00-load.t t/boilerplate.t t/manifest.t
After that it's the following, and off you go.
$ perl Makefile.PL $ make $ make test $ make install
Life couldn't be easier could it?
