Kwalitee Issues


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

Error: Expected a map structure from string or file. (requires) [Validation: 1.2]


Fix MANIFEST.SKIP or use an authoring tool which respects MANIFEST.SKIP. Note that each entry in MANIFEST.SKIP is a regular expression. You may need to add appropriate meta characters not to ignore necessary stuff.

Error: Makefile.PL


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


Add 'use strict' (or its equivalents) to all modules, or convince us that your favorite module is well-known enough and people can easily see the modules are strictly written.

Error: Win32::OLE::Enum, Win32::OLE::Lite


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

Error: Win32-OLE-0.1710/lib/Win32/OLE/TPJ.pod -- Around line 147: Non-ASCII character seen before =encoding in 'C<Öffnen>'. Assuming CP1252


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.


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


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: OLE, Win32::OLE, Win32::OLE::Const, Win32::OLE::Enum, Win32::OLE::Lite, Win32::OLE::NLS, Win32::OLE::TypeInfo, Win32::OLE::Variant


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).


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