Call for help with open source project "CLPM"

CLPM is my “Command Line Project Manager”. It’s a tool I wrote and have been using myself for several years now, and I am releasing it in the hope that others might find it useful.

Also, if you have been looking for an open source project to contribute to, here’s your chance! I don’t care what your level of experience is, if you think you have a useful comment or contribution, I’d like to hear from you!

There is a Todo section in the README, but I want to add a couple notes here:

  1. It’s currently not packaged, nor does it have an installer. This probably makes it much less likely to be adopted.
  2. I’m not sure how to promote it to make sure its audience (developers/sysadmins maybe) at least get a chance to see it, even if it ends up that it’s useful to nobody but me.

The project page has more details: https://github.com/tinypigdotcom/clpm

Working from the synopsis, I had a difficult time writing a working piece of code. It occurred to me that this was the very place I could start with a Pull Request.


My First Day on the CPAN Pull Request Challenge

So yesterday, I started on the CPAN Pull Request Challenge. I was assigned the module Devel::StackTrace::WithLexicals, so, I read the doc and installed it.

The doc references two other modules' influence: Devel::StackTrace and PadWalker

So I figured I'd have a look at those first. Combining two examples from the doc for Devel::StackTrace, I wrote this:
