Official Mirror:
When using this module in a test script, it goes through all the modules in your distribution, checks their POD, checks that they compile OK and checks that they all define a $VERSION. This module also performs a number of test on the distribution itself. It checks that your files match your SIGNATURE file if you have one. It checks that your distribution isn't missing certain 'core' description files. It checks to see you haven't missed out listing any prerequisites in Makefile.PL. It defines its own testing plan, so you usually don't use it in conjunction with other Test::* modules in the same file. It's recommended that you just create a one-line test script as shown in the SYNOPSIS above. However, there are options...
