NAME
Module::Install::Admin - Author-side manager for Module::Install SYNOPSIS
In a Module::Install extension module: sub extension_method { my $self = shift; $self->admin->some_method(@args); } As an one-liner: % perl "-MModule::Install::Admin" -e'&some_method(@args);' The two snippets above are really shorthands for $some_obj->some_method(@args) where $some_obj is the singleton object of a class under the "Module::Install::Admin::*" namespace that provides the method "some_method". See "METHODS" for a list of built-in methods. DESCRIPTION
This module implements the internal mechanism for initializing, including and managing extensions, and should only be of interest to extension developers; it is never included under a distribution's inc/ directory, nor are any of the Module::Install::Admin::* extensions. For normal usage of Module::Install, please see Module::Install and "COOKBOOK / EXAMPLES" in Module::Install instead. Bootstrapping When someone runs a Makefile.PL that has "use inc::Module::Install", and there is no inc/ in the current directory, Module::Install will load this module bootstrap itself, through the steps below: o First, Module/Install.pm is POD-stripped and copied from @INC to inc/. This should only happen on the author's side, never on the end- user side. o Reload inc/Module/Install.pm if the current file is somewhere else. This ensures that the included version of inc/Module/Install.pm is always preferred over the installed version. o Look at inc/Module/Install/*.pm and load all of them. o Set up a "main::AUTOLOAD" function to delegate missing function calls to "Module::Install::Admin::load" -- again, this should only happen at the author's side. o Provide a "Module::Install::purge_self" function for removing included files under inc/.

Module::Install::Bundle(3pm)				User Contributed Perl Documentation			      Module::Install::Bundle(3pm)

NAME
Module::Install::Bundle - Bundle distributions along with your distribution SYNOPSIS
Have your Makefile.PL read as follows: use inc::Module::Install; name 'Foo-Bar'; all_from 'lib/Foo/Bar.pm'; requires 'Baz' => '1.60'; # one of either: bundle 'Baz' => '1.60'; # OR: auto_bundle; WriteAll; DESCRIPTION
Module::Install::Bundle allows you to bundle a CPAN distribution within your distribution. When your end-users install your distribution, the bundled distribution will be installed along with yours, unless a newer version of the bundled distribution already exists on their local filesystem. While bundling will increase the size of your distribution, it has several benefits: Allows installation of bundled distributions when CPAN is unavailable Allows installation of bundled distributions when networking is unavailable Allows everything your distribution needs to be packaged in one place Bundling differs from auto-installation in that when it comes time to install, a bundled distribution will be installed based on the distribution bundled with your distribution, whereas with auto-installation the distibution to be installed will be acquired from CPAN and then installed. METHODS
o auto_bundle() Takes no arguments, will bundle every distribution specified by a "requires()". When you, as a module author, do a "perl Makefile.PL" the latest versions of the distributions to be bundled will be acquired from CPAN and placed in inc/BUNDLES/. o bundle($name, $version) Takes a list of key/value pairs specifying a distribution name and version number. When you, as a module author, do a perl Makefile.PL the distributions that you specified with "bundle()" will be acquired from CPAN and placed in inc/BUNDLES/. o bundle_deps($name, $version) Same as "bundle", except that all dependencies of the bundled modules are also detected and bundled. To use this function, you need to declare the minimum supported perl version first, like this: perl_version( '5.005' ); o auto_bundle_deps Same as "auto_bundle", except that all dependencies of the bundled modules are also detected and bundled. This function has the same constraints as bundle_deps. BUGS
