module

P: n/a
I am new to perl. In fact I haven't written decent code in perl. But I
would like to write a module. And is the perldoc that comes with Perl at
cpan all you need to write in perl?

perldoc perlmod is a good place to start reading.

You don't need perldoc although it certainly comes very handy when
writing Perl code. Technically all you need is an editor to write and
the perl interpreter to run the code.

What about a Perl compiler. That's the one thing I have against Perl it
runs on interpreters. Btw what is a POD ?

The Perl interpreter compiles your Perl source code before it executes
it. Compiling and execution are done in one step, so there are no nasty
object files and load libraries to mess around with.

POD stands for "plain old documentation". It means unadorned text,
although Perl's POD system does have some minor text appearance
enhancements, such as indenting, bolding, and italicization. But the
basic POD document system allows a module writer, to which you aspire,
to interlace documentation with code with a few, simple compiler
directives. See "perldoc perlpod" for details.

FYI: comp.lang.perl is a defunct newsgroup. You should use
comp.lang.perl.misc for general Perl questions. See also "perldoc -q
newsgroups" for others.
