Kwalitee Issues


Add a META.yml to the distribution. Your buildtool should be able to autogenerate it.


Run a proper command ("make manifest" or "./Build manifest", maybe with a force option), or use a distribution builder to generate the MANIFEST. Or update MANIFEST manually.


  • MANIFEST (80) does not match dist (82):
  • Missing in MANIFEST: docs/Makefile, lib/Nmap/Scanner/OS/


Remove the POD errors. You can check for POD errors automatically by including Test::Pod to your test suite.

Error: Nmap-Scanner-1.0/lib/Nmap/Scanner/ -- Around line 553: '=item' outside of any '=over'Around line 611: You forgot a '=back' before '=head2'


List all used modules in META.yml requires


  • Class::Generate
  • LWP::UserAgent
  • XML::SAX::Base
  • XML::SAX::ParserFactory


Add 'use strict' (or its equivalents) to all modules, or convince us that your favorite module is well-known enough and people can easily see the modules are strictly written.

Error: Nmap::Scanner, Nmap::Scanner::Backend, Nmap::Scanner::Util


Add =head1 LICENSE and/or the proper text of the well-known license to the main module in your code.


Add a META.json to the distribution. Your buildtool should be able to autogenerate it.


Define the license if you are using in Build.PL. If you are using MakeMaker (Makefile.PL) you should upgrade to ExtUtils::MakeMaker version 6.31.


Add 'use warnings' (or its equivalents) to all modules (this will require perl > 5.6), or convince us that your favorite module is well-known enough and people can easily see the modules warn when something bad happens.

Error: Nmap::Scanner, Nmap::Scanner::Address, Nmap::Scanner::Backend, Nmap::Scanner::Backend::Processor, Nmap::Scanner::Backend::Results, Nmap::Scanner::Backend::XML, Nmap::Scanner::Distance, Nmap::Scanner::ExtraPorts, Nmap::Scanner::Host, Nmap::Scanner::HostList, Nmap::Scanner::Hostname, Nmap::Scanner::Hosts, Nmap::Scanner::NmapRun, Nmap::Scanner::OS, Nmap::Scanner::OS::Class, Nmap::Scanner::OS::Fingerprint, Nmap::Scanner::OS::IPIdSequence, Nmap::Scanner::OS::Match, Nmap::Scanner::OS::PortUsed, Nmap::Scanner::OS::TCPSequence, Nmap::Scanner::OS::TCPTSSequence, Nmap::Scanner::OS::Uptime, Nmap::Scanner::Port, Nmap::Scanner::PortList, Nmap::Scanner::RunStats, Nmap::Scanner::RunStats::Finished, Nmap::Scanner::ScanInfo, Nmap::Scanner::Scanner, Nmap::Scanner::Service, Nmap::Scanner::Task, Nmap::Scanner::TaskProgress, Nmap::Scanner::Util, Nmap::Scanner::Util::BannerScanner


This is not a critical issue. Currently mainly informative for the CPANTS authors. It might be removed later.
