Kwalitee Issues


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


List all used modules in META.yml requires


  • IPChains
  • Net::IPv4Addr


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

Error: Fwctl-0.28/Fwctl/ -- Around line 269: You forgot a '=back' before '=head1' Fwctl-0.28/Fwctl/ -- Around line 990: '=item' outside of any '=over'


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, or convince us that your favorite module is well-known enough and people can easily see the modules warn when something bad happens.

Error: Fwctl, Fwctl::AcctReport, Fwctl::Report, Fwctl::RuleSet, Fwctl::Services::all, Fwctl::Services::dhcp, Fwctl::Services::ftp, Fwctl::Services::http, Fwctl::Services::hylafax, Fwctl::Services::icmp_pkt, Fwctl::Services::ip_pkt, Fwctl::Services::ipsec, Fwctl::Services::lpd, Fwctl::Services::name_service, Fwctl::Services::netbios, Fwctl::Services::ntp, Fwctl::Services::pcanywhere, Fwctl::Services::ping, Fwctl::Services::portmap, Fwctl::Services::pptp, Fwctl::Services::redirect, Fwctl::Services::rsh, Fwctl::Services::snmp, Fwctl::Services::syslog, Fwctl::Services::tcp_service, Fwctl::Services::timed, Fwctl::Services::traceroute, Fwctl::Services::traffic_control, Fwctl::Services::udp_pkt, Fwctl::Services::udp_service, Fwtcl::Services::tftp, IPChains::PortFW


Fix the version numbers so that version::is_lax($version) returns true.


  • Fwctl/ HASH(0x5568d18fc870)
  • Fwctl/ HASH(0x5568d1534f98)


Split the distribution, or fix the version numbers to make them consistent (use the highest version number to avoid version downgrade).

Error: 0.28,1.4


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