I tried to follow instructions in Module::Install::ReadmeFromPod and got the following error: $ perl Makefile.PL include /home/hakim/other_repos/Harold/inc/Module/ String found where operator expected at Makefile.PL line 7, near "readme_from 'lib/'" (Do you need to predeclare readme_from?) syntax error at Makefile.PL line 7, near "readme_from 'lib/'" Execution of Makefile.PL aborted due to compilation errors. Of course the problem is that I didn't have Module::Install::ReadmeFromPod installed... but it seems the way the plugin system works means that this is a syntax error rather than an indication to install the plugin.
