Subject: documentation: compare to Devel::CheckBin
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 169b
Should have a 'SEE ALSO' section in pod referring to Devel::CheckBin, and explain what is different about this module compared to that one. When would I choose each one?

I think this is clear: the Devel::* modules are typically used in a development environment. e.g. in a Makefile.PL/Build.PL. Judging from the name, File::Which is universal. Also, shouldn't Devel::CheckBin have this Pod section, as this one is the newcomer? Regards, Slaven

They both should document the differences, sure. I don't think the difference is obvious, as I've seen File::Which also used in a Makefile.PL. (Also, Devel::CheckBin is used in runtime code.) I'm still not sure where I should use one over the other. :)
I am adding a SEE ALSO section that will be included in the next version.
