Change log for Test::Pod
1.51 2015-07-04 20:36:53Z
* convert tooling from Module::Build to ExtUtils::MakeMaker (resolves
circular dependency with MB on perl 5.21+)
1.50 2015-05-28T21:42:48Z
* Restored support for ignoring directories listed in
`%Test::Pod::ignore_dirs`, inadvertently dropped by the switch to
File::Find in v1.46. Thanks to Julien ÉLIE for the report and diagnosis!
1.49 2015-05-12T17:30:58Z
* Changed license in the README to "Same as Perl" to match the license
listed in `META.yml`, and in the POD as of v1.42.
* Tightened up the heuristic for matching Perl batch files to require
that the file end in `.bat`, as described in the documentation.
Patch from Luca Ferrari.
* Simplified some of the matching code. Patch from Luca Ferrari.
* Transferred ownership of the repository to the perl-pod organization on
* Removed the Pod testing test from the distribution. Seems silly for a
module designed for testing Pod, right? But it's considered best
practice to do Pod testing in development only, not in a release.
1.48 - 2013-05-06T04:47:00Z
* Fixed test failure with versions of Pod::Simple lower than 3.24. Thanks
to Martin Holste and Tatsuhiko Miyagawa for the reports.
1.47 - 2013-05-05T03:14:25Z
* Fixed failing test on Pod::Simple 3.27 and higher.
1.46 - 2013-02-16T19:46:17Z
* Fixed a crash when `all_pod_files_ok()` finds no files to test. Thanks
to H.Merijn Brand.
* Switched from custom file searching code to File::Find. Suggested by
H.Merijn Brand.
* Fixed failing test on Pod::Simple 3.24.
1.45 - 2011-03-09T20:00:59
* Removed Module::Build from `build_requires`, since it does nothing
out-of-the ordinary, and this keeps it out of the `Makefile.PL`'s
`PM_PREREQ`. Per gripe from Peter Scott.
1.44 - 2010-04-26T17:33:02
* Restored the `Makefile.PL` by using Module::Build::Compat's
"traditional" configuration.
1.43 - 2010-04-21T02:33:59
* Reduced prereq for Test::More to 0.62, prereq for Pod::Simple to 3.05,
and added File::Spec to the list of prereqs. The prerequisites were
needlessly high, and by reducing them Test::Pod can rely on the core
versions of those modules in on Perl 5.8.8. Thanks to Chris Wittmer for
the patch.
1.42 - 2010-03-10T19:41:20
* Fixed invalid Pod link. Thanks to Markus Sonderegger.
* Changed license in the POD to "Same as Perl" to match the license listed in
* Changed `Build.PL` to require Module::Build 0.30. It already does in
`configure_requires`, but also doing so on the `use` line helps provide
a more useful error message in older toolchain tools that don't use
* Updated `MANIFEST` so that the `README` is actually included in the
* Now recognizes `.bat` files as Perl files when they contain
"--*-Perl-*--" on the first line. Thanks to Olivier 'dolmen' Mengué for
the patch (RT #46973).
* `all_pod_files_ok()` now operates on directories as well as files.
Thanks to Adriano Ferreira for the patch (RT #33025).
* Files with no POD now have " (no pod)" added to test name. Thanks to
Adriano Ferreira for the patch (RT #34955).
* Updated documentation to note that `.PL` files are considered Perl
files. Thanks to Adriano Ferreira for the spot (RT #34955).
* `all_pod_files_ok()` now lets `pod_file_ok()` set the default test name,
rather than doing so itself. Thanks to Adriano Ferreira for the spot (RT
1.41 - 2010-01-14T20:09:25
* Maintenance transfered to David Wheeler.
* Test::Pod no longer complains about the construct L<text|url>, as it is
no longer illegal (as of Perl 5.11.3).
* Switched to Module::Build.
1.40 - Sun Jul 12 23:32:11 CDT 2009
Test::Pod now requires Perl 5.8.0.
Test::Pod now complains about the illegal construct L<text|url>.
Thanks to Paul Miller.
The list of directories to exclude is now much longer, and is
available in %Test::Pod::ignore_dirs. This list is right now:
'.bzr' => 'Bazaar',
'.git' => 'Git',
'.hg' => 'Mercurial',
'.pc' => 'quilt',
'.svn' => 'Subversion',
CVS => 'CVS',
RCS => 'RCS',
_darcs => 'darcs',
_sgbak => 'Vault/Fortress',
1.26 - Wed Jul 19 09:54:48 CDT 2006
No new functionality in this version.
* Fixed a Win32 build bug.
* Fixed a bug in the SYNOPSIS.
1.24 - Wed Feb 1 15:18:06 PST 2006
* The long-deprecated pod_ok() is now gone, along with all its
* Now runs properly under VMS. Thanks to Peter Edwards.
1.22 - Sun Oct 23 23:45:51 CDT 2005
* Added check for lines with only whitespace before or after a
directive. Older POD formatters can get confused by such
lines since they goof up paragraph mode. (RT #6467)
* Bumped up requirements to Test::Simple 0.62.
1.20 - Wed Jun 23 00:28:35 CDT 2004
* Looks in blib/ if there is one, otherwise looks in lib/
* Thanks to David Wheeler for nudging.
1.18 - Fri May 28 23:48:28 CDT 2004
* Now exports all_pod_files() as advertised.
* Also includes *.t files as Pod.
1.16 - Fri Apr 30 17:42:50 CDT 2004
* Fixed a warning under 5.8.3. Also explicitly closes dir handles
when searching for POD.
1.14 - Wed Apr 28 23:38:29 CDT 2004
* Now runs taint-safe. No longer uses File::Find. I'm trying to
get all my modules to run under -T correctly, so this is big.
1.12 - Sat Mar 13 10:34:06 CST 2004
* all_pod_files() now picks up *.PL files.
1.10 - Tue Mar 9 23:27:16 CST 2004
* Almost all of my coverage is almost to 100%.
* Fixed some test bugs on Win32.
* Message problems if the file is missing.
1.08 - Wed Jan 21 00:40:07 CST 2004
No new features or fixes.
* t/all_pod_files.t failed because in my zeal to be a good
cross-platform guy, I used File::Spec separators on lists to
compare against those coming from File::Find, which uses slashes.
1.06 - Sat Jan 10 08:47:55 CST 2004
No new features or fixes.
* t/all_pod_files.t failed because all_pod_files() returns an
unsorted list. Fixed.
1.04 - Fri Jan 9 22:39:15 CST 2004
* all_pod_files() can now take multiple start directories.
Thanks to David Wheeler for the patch.
* All the *ok() functions now return the value of the underlying ok().
* All functions are now documented.
* Removed valid_file, which was not being used.
1.02 - Mon Nov 10 09:07:39 CST 2003
No new functionality. If 1.00 installed for you, then you don't
need 1.02.
* Fixed dumb test failure in t/all_pod_files.t.
* Spiffed up the SYNOPSIS.
1.00 - Mon Nov 10 00:06:30 CST 2003
* Added all_pod_files_ok() method.
0.96 - Sat Oct 11 22:46:00 CST 2003
* Removed dependency on IO::Scalar, which was wrong.
* Requires newest, most-lenient Pod::Simple.
* Added various tests to the t/ hierarchy. Thanks to David Wheeler
for help on this.
0.95 - Mon Mar 3 09:35:00 CST 2002
* Rewrote to use Pod::Simple instead of Pod::Checker
* Deprecated the pod_ok function.
* Added pod_file_ok() to replace pod_ok().
0.90 - Tue Dec 3 18:59:39 CST 2002
* things seem to be going well, so this is not in beta :)
* cleanup up some formatting
* fixed the bad pod test which some Pod::Checker versions reported
extra errors
0.72 - Thu Nov 14 20:16:13 CST 2002
* cleaned up Makefile.PL and tests
* no code changes
0.71 - Mon Sep 9 10:58:22 CDT 2002
* added Test::Builder::Tester to PREREQ_PM
0.70 - Thu Sep 5 22:39:13 CDT 2002
* pod_ok shows POD errors and warnings if it fails
* you can give the test a name
