I'd like for Module::Build to be able to find author and abstract info in the POD whether I spell the headers =head1 NAME =head1 AUTHOR Or =head1 Name =head1 Author Currently, only the uppercase versions are allowed. The attached patch modifies Module::Build::PodParser to allow both. I tried to get this change in years ago, but I think I'll have better luck this time. Really, POD should not require that `=head1` text be all uppercase; that should be a decided by a POD formatter. As for prior art, doesn't care about the case of these headers. That not caring became permanent thanks to a patch from Graham adding the "nocase" param to Pod::Simple (released in 3.09). I'm really tired of having special POD comments in my modules to trick Module::Build into finding this information even though I use mixed case headers. Please consider adding this patch to the next release of Module::Build so that I don't have to anymore. Thanks, David

Annoyance noted. I'll see what I can do. :-) I'll probably be doing several rounds of work on Module::Build during November.
Thanks. Patch applied to trunk.
