how to separate a module and share it with someone?
I am a novice to Magento. I have learned to make a module (just a 'hello,world!' module). As you all know a module has files under different directories. But in production I wish to share my module code to my friend so that he can plug it in and use it. Is it possible? how can I separate the module code I make and share with my friend? other than copying and sharing each and every file from my implementation to his one, can we separate the code in any other way?

Go to System > Magento Connect > Package Extensions. It allows you to put all files you created into one neat tidy tgz package, version it and if you wish, you can make it available from Magento Connect. But you don't have to .. I always package my stuff this way.
