503Do similar modules already exist in some form?, Try to design the new

505Select what to export, Select a name for the module, Have you got it
506right?, README and other Additional Files, A description of the
507module/package/extension etc, A copyright notice - see below,
508Prerequisites - what else you may need to have, How to build it -
509possible changes to Makefile.PL etc, How to install it, Recent changes
510in this release, especially incompatibilities, Changes / enhancements
511you plan to make in the future, Adding a Copyright Notice, Give the
512module a version/issue/release number, How to release and distribute a
513module, Take care when changing a released module
514
515=item Guidelines for Converting Perl 4 Library Scripts into Modules
516
517
518There is no requirement to convert anything, Consider the implications,
519Make the most of the opportunity, The pl2pm utility will get you
520started, Adds the standard Module prologue lines, Converts package
521specifiers from ' to ::, Converts die(...) to croak(...), Several other
522minor changes
523
524=item Guidelines for Reusing Application Code
525
526
527Complete applications rarely belong in the Perl Module Library, Many
528applications contain some perl code which could be reused, Break-out
529the reusable code into one or more separate module files, Take the
530opportunity to reconsider and redesign the interfaces, In some cases
531the 'application' can then be reduced to a small
