distribution Mail-Box-POP3

Until release 3.0, this module was an integral part of the Mail-Box distribution. This distribution implements a client connector to a POP3 server.

Development → Release

Important to know, is that I use an extension on POD to write the manuals. The "raw" unprocessed version is visible on GitHub. It will run without problems, but does not contain manual-pages.

Releases to CPAN are different: "raw" documentation gets removed from the code and translated into real POD and clean HTML. This reformatting is implemented with the OODoc distribution (A name I chose before OpenOffice existed, sorry for the confusion)

Clone from github for the "raw" version. For instance, when you want to contribute a new feature.

On github, you can find the processed version for each release. But the better source is CPAN; to get it installed simply run:

   cpan -i Mail::Box::POP3

Contributing

When you want to contribute to this module, you do not need to provide a perfect patch... actually: it is nearly impossible to create a patch which I will merge without modification. Usually, I need to adapt the style of code and documentation to my own strict rules.

When you submit an extension, please contribute a set with

  1. code

  2. code documentation

  3. regression tests in t/
