Kwalitee Issues


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 README to the distribution. It should contain a quick description of your module and how to install 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 (18) does not match dist (15):
  • Missing in Dist: README, examples/optw.tar.gz, t/Sim-OPT.t


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

Error: *** ERROR: Non-ASCII character seen before =encoding in '"£");'. Assuming UTF-8 at line 2637 in file Sim-OPT-0.459/lib/Sim/


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

Error: 0.001005,0.06,0.073,0.081,0.115,0.147,0.159,0.459


If you are using Build.PL define the {requires}{perl} = VERSION field. If you are using MakeMaker (Makefile.PL) you should upgrade ExtUtils::MakeMaker to 6.48 and use MIN_PERL_VERSION parameter. Perl::MinimumVersion can help you determine which version of Perl your module needs.


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.


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


  • lib/Sim/OPT/ HASH(0x6a61258)


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: Sim::OPT, Sim::OPT::Descend, Sim::OPT::Interlinear, Sim::OPT::Modish, Sim::OPT::Morph, Sim::OPT::Parcoord3d, Sim::OPT::Report, Sim::OPT::Sim, Sim::OPT::Takechance


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


Add all modules contained in this distribution to the META.yml field 'provides'. Module::Build or Dist::Zilla::Plugin::MetaProvides do this automatically for you.


Add a 'repository' resource to the META.yml via 'meta_add' accessor (for Module::Build) or META_ADD parameter (for ExtUtils::MakeMaker).
