02:29 Tordek hi
02:30 genio how goes it?
02:30 Tordek all good; happy new year!
02:30 Tordek http://cpants.cpanauthors.org/release/DCANTRELL/Number-Phone-3.3000 there's uh... something wrong with the cpants here?
02:31 genio hm.  that does seem to be a bit insane
02:32 Tordek also it claims there's an error on Error: Number-Phone-3.3000/lib/Number/Phone/UK/Data.pm
02:32 Tordek but that file doesn't exist... anymore at least
02:36 genio The consensus seems to be that there's a problem with the POD in that file and that it's a huge file.
02:37 genio https://fastapi.metacpan.org/source/DCANTRELL/Number-Phone-3.3000/lib/Number/Phone/UK/Data.pm
02:37 genio gigantic file
02:39 Tordek oh, generated file... yay
02:41 genio I'd have to agree with the others that this probably shouldn't be a .pm file
02:42 Tordek "the others"?... are you talking to the voices in your head agaon? :P
02:46 Tordek *again
02:46 genio of course. :)
02:46 genio no, I'm talking with the people in another channel who have more knowledge about cpants and whatnot than I do.  It appears to be a legitimately broken POD, but also may be a place that CPANTS could improve and the author really shouldn't put large data files like that in a PM
02:46 Tordek aye, I guessed as much, I'm just kiddin
02:46 Tordek interestingly, it seems that file is built by build-data.uk
02:46 Tordek so the authour has some...issues with file extensions
02:47 genio running suggestion seems to be to have CPANTS recognize when files contain binary data like that and overlook it like metacpan
02:47 genio https://metacpan.org/pod/Number::Phone::UK::Data
03:00 Tordek hmm, there's something wrong with... everything, anyway
03:00 Tordek because running the makefile steps fails...
03:01 Tordek ± perl Makefile.PL
03:01 Tordek Checking if your kit is complete...
03:01 Tordek Warning: the following files are missing in your kit:
03:01 Tordek [a bunch of files]
03:01 Tordek Please inform the author.
03:11 Tordek ah, there we go... the github doesn't really match what's on the metacpan
