Kwalitee Issues


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: eg;Mci;Joystick;Makefile.PL;README.txt


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 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.

Error: Cannot find MANIFEST in dist.


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

Error: Joystick/ -- Around line 401: You forgot a '=back' before '=head2'Around line 404: '=item' outside of any '=over'Around line 487: You forgot a '=back' before '=head2'Around line 489: '=item' outside of any '=over'Around line 636: You forgot a '=back' before '=head1'Around line 640: '=item' outside of any '=over'Around line 675: You forgot a '=back' before '=head1'Around line 704: =back without =over


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.


Add tests or move to the t/ directory!


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.


Move your *.pm files in a directory named 'lib'. The directory structure should look like 'lib/Your/' for a module named 'Your::Module'. If you need to provide additional files, e.g. for testing, that should not be considered for Kwalitee, then you should look at the 'provides' map in META.yml to limit the files scanned; or use the 'no_index' map to exclude parts of the distribution.

Error: Joystick/, Mci/, Mci/


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: Win32::MultiMedia::Joystick, Win32::MultiMedia::Mci, Win32::MultiMedia::Mci::Consts


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