Kwalitee Issues


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.


  • MANIFEST (7) does not match dist (15):
  • Missing in MANIFEST: Enhanced/, Enhanced/Makefile.PL, Enhanced/Makefile.old, Enhanced/, LibXML/Makefile.PL, LibXML/, LibXML/, README


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

Error: XML-SimpleObject0.53/LibXML/ -- Around line 150: '=item' outside of any '=over'Around line 195: You forgot a '=back' before '=head1' XML-SimpleObject0.53/ -- Around line 165: '=item' outside of any '=over'Around line 214: You forgot a '=back' before '=head1'


List all used modules in META.yml requires


  • XML::LibXML
  • XML::Parser


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.


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: XML::SimpleObject, XML::SimpleObject::LibXML


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