Have you uploaded a module to CPAN?
If yes then you will have come across PAUSE. One of the PAUSE admins, Neil Bowers, has written handful of blog posts to help anyone understand the internals. I would recommend you start with What happens when you upload to CPAN?. I have seen beginners fighting with issues related to versioning. You should checkout one more cool post: Semantic Version. Do you want more? If yes there here is one more post on the same subject by Dave Cross: Version Numbers.
During the research, I found an interview of Neil Bowers with the chief editor Gabor Szabo. I really enjoyed watching it after a long time.
How do you debug your Perl script?
I belong to old school and still today use the command line switch -d for debugging. I know there are other ways of debugging. Recently I tried using editor Visual Studio Code with the help of colleague at work. Although I liked the visual debugging but for me old is gold. If you are new to debugging then you should checkout the YouTube video by Ricardo Signes.
