Kwalitee Issues

extracts_nicely

Pack the distribution with a proper command such as "make dist" and "./Build dist", or use a distribution builder such as Dist::Zilla, Dist::Milla, Minilla.

Error: More than one top directories are found: README;Sample.pm;Changes;Makefile.PL;sample.htm;examples;MANIFEST

has_human_readable_license

Add a section called "LICENSE" to the documentation, or add a file named LICENSE to the distribution.

has_license_in_source_file

Add =head1 LICENSE and the text of the license to the main module in your code.

has_meta_yml

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

has_tests

Add tests!

manifest_matches_dist

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.

Error:

  • MANIFEST (5) does not match dist (11):
  • Missing in MANIFEST: README, Sample.pm, examples/passwd.pl, examples/sample.pl, examples/set.pl, examples/spasswd.pl, examples/synopsis.pl, sample.htm
  • Missing in Dist: Temp.pm, test.pl

no_pod_errors

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

Error: Sample.pm -- Around line 898: '=item' outside of any '=over'Around line 1028: You forgot a '=back' before '=head1'Around line 1030: '=item' outside of any '=over'Around line 1072: Unknown directive: =iutemAround line 1110: You forgot a '=back' before '=head1'Around line 1273: '=item' outside of any '=over'Around line 1292: You forgot a '=back' before '=head1'

package_version_matches_dist_version

Fix the version(s).

prereq_matches_use

List all used modules in META.yml requires

Error:

  • Win32::Console

has_known_license_in_source_file

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

has_meta_json

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

has_tests_in_t_dir

Add tests or move tests.pl to the t/ directory!

meta_yml_has_license

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.

use_warnings

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: Term::Sample

has_separate_license_file

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