I didn’t get as far into cleanup as I had hoped today - I got the basic documentation up to date, cleaned up a lot of orphaned subroutines (and entire libraries), but the only additional testing I did was to tack the Test::Pod::Coverage onto the end of the lonely initial test routine.

It’s not awful — Birdfeeder.pl is essentially a test suite of its own, lacking only the Test::More wrapper and deliberately-wrong attempts (which is a major lack, admittedly). Over the course of next week, I’ll move Birdfeeder into a test script and remedy that lack, and also move all my TODO comments into tests.

The docs are still not-great, but there’s at least a little description of each subroutine.


Comment? Email it to me. (I'll assume I can publish it unless you say otherwise)
