The process for creating modules is kinda buried or at least it has been 
until the last few years.

h2xs -AXn My::Module::Name

will create


Adjust Name.pm and test.pl as needed and use

perl Makefile.PL
make dist

to tar up the whole mess.

See 'man h2xs' for details; that's the basic process for creating a skeleton 
module and packaging it for distribution. I've been meaning to write up the 
process of packaging legacy modules but I haven't had the motivation lately...
