Subject: Doesn't see modules in the current distro
Download (untitled) / with headers

If I add a new module do a distro and link to it from my pod, the tests fail. It'd be great if the link checking looked under blib or lib as appropriate and found all the packages that are part of the current distro. Then it could just whitelist them.

It should really look in all of $PERL5LIB, which would handle the blib/lib case as well.

Hello, Thanks for reporting this! I agree with you and have reviewed my code. Internally the module uses Pod::Find to search for installed Pod files. I'm passing the "-inc" argument to it to enable searching across all possible paths. sub _known_podfile { ... my $filename = Pod::Find::pod_where( { '-inc' => 1, }, $link ); ... } If that fails to find a hit my module will then search the cpan for matching files. If I am right, Pod::Find isn't properly searching your @INC or $PERL5LIB? Or is it because of your unique case of "new" module being added? Could you please help me reproduce this so I can better understand what is failing? Thanks! On Sat Jun 23 12:31:45 2012, ETHER wrote: Show quoted text
