Kwalitee Issues


Change the permissions of Build.PL/Makefile.PL to not-executable.


Provide a short description in the NAME section of the pod (after the module name followed by a hyphen) at least for the main module of this distribution.


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


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


Add a README to the distribution. It should contain a quick description of your module and how to install it.


Take a look at the META.json Spec at (for version 1.4) or (for version 2), and change your META.json accordingly.


Upgrade your META.json generator so it produces valid JSON.

Error: malformed JSON string, neither tag, array, object, number, string or atom, at character offset 0 (before "\x{3}\x{0}\x{1}\x{fffd}...")


Upgrade your YAML generator so it produces valid YAML.

Error: Error reading from file 'VMS-Lock-1_03/META.yml': utf8 "\x8D" does not map to Unicode


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

Error: VMS-Lock-1_03/ -- Around line 276: =cut found outside a pod block. Skipping to next block.


Fix the version(s).


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


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: VMS::Lock


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