Finally while code-reuse is a good idea, it can only as good as the code that is being reused. The module helped put Perl on the map, but its days are numbered. A tutorial that spends too much time on it is probably too old to trust.
+**Staring a Module**
+There are several systems which help a user begin authoring a module. Among these are Dist::Zilla and Module::Starter. An older option is the `h2xs` program, which is older and very complicated. Tutorials which depend on `h2xs` are probably either too old or are targeting a specific case that new users need not deal with yet (wrapping C code into an XS module).
