Here is the module. Does the fact that this is here mean anything? Does it not mean the code has already been thouroughly tested and would be shown here at CPAN if this was not the case?


No it doesn't. You should check the modules details if it is a rather obscure or older module:

http://search.cpan.org/~jsm/HTML-Defaultify-1.01/

see if there are known bugs, what the modules rating is, if there are any comments from peple that have used the module, see how many testers tested it and on what platforms, etc etc etc.

I tend to stay away from modules that are old and have never been updated by the author or anyone else.

You can also use the "lib" pragma to include your own list of modules in @INC. See the lib pragma for details. Or use "require" to use modules.
