CPANPLUS::Dist::Build(3)       User Contributed Perl Documentation	 CPANPLUS::Dist::Build(3)

NAME
       CPANPLUS::Dist::Build - CPANPLUS plugin to install packages that use Build.PL

SYNOPSIS
	   my $build = CPANPLUS::Dist->new(
				       format  => 'CPANPLUS::Dist::Build',
				       module  => $modobj,
				   );

	   $build->prepare;    # runs Build.PL
	   $build->create;     # runs build && build test
	   $build->install;    # runs build install

DESCRIPTION
       "CPANPLUS::Dist::Build" is a distribution class for "Module::Build" related modules.
       Using this package, you can create, install and uninstall perl modules. It inherits from
       "CPANPLUS::Dist".

       Normal users won't have to worry about the interface to this module, as it functions
       transparently as a plug-in to "CPANPLUS" and will just "Do The Right Thing" when it's
       loaded.

ACCESSORS
       "parent()"
	   Returns the "CPANPLUS::Module" object that parented this object.

       "status()"
	   Returns the "Object::Accessor" object that keeps the status for this module.

STATUS ACCESSORS
       All accessors can be accessed as follows:
	   $build->status->ACCESSOR

       "build_pl ()"
	   Location of the Build file.	Set to 0 explicitly if something went wrong.

       "build ()"
	   BOOL indicating if the "Build" command was successful.

       "test ()"
	   BOOL indicating if the "Build test" command was successful.

       "prepared ()"
	   BOOL indicating if the "prepare" call exited successfully This gets set after "perl
	   Build.PL"

       "distdir ()"
	   Full path to the directory in which the "prepare" call took place, set after a call to
	   "prepare".

       "created ()"
	   BOOL indicating if the "create" call exited successfully. This gets set after "Build"
	   and "Build test".

       "installed ()"
	   BOOL indicating if the module was installed. This gets set after "Build install" exits
	   successfully.

       uninstalled ()
	   BOOL indicating if the module was uninstalled properly.

       "_create_args ()"
	   Storage of the arguments passed to "create" for this object. Used for recursive calls
	   when satisfying prerequisites.

       "_install_args ()"
	   Storage of the arguments passed to "install" for this object. Used for recursive calls
	   when satisfying prerequisites.

METHODS
   $bool = CPANPLUS::Dist::Build->format_available();
       Returns a boolean indicating whether or not you can use this package to create and install
       modules in your environment.

   $bool = $dist->init();
       Sets up the "CPANPLUS::Dist::Build" object for use.  Effectively creates all the needed
       status accessors.

       Called automatically whenever you create a new "CPANPLUS::Dist" object.

   $bool = $dist->prepare([perl => '/path/to/perl', buildflags => 'EXTRA=FLAGS', force => BOOL,
       verbose => BOOL])
       "prepare" prepares a distribution, running "Build.PL" and establishing any prerequisites
       this distribution has.

       The variable "PERL5_CPANPLUS_IS_EXECUTING" will be set to the full path of the "Build.PL"
       that is being executed. This enables any code inside the "Build.PL" to know that it is
       being installed via CPANPLUS.

       After a successful "prepare" you may call "create" to create the distribution, followed by
       "install" to actually install it.

       Returns true on success and false on failure.

   $dist->create([perl => '/path/to/perl', buildflags => 'EXTRA=FLAGS', prereq_target => TARGET,
       force => BOOL, verbose => BOOL, skiptest => BOOL])
       "create" preps a distribution for installation. This means it will run "Build" and "Build
       test".  This will also satisfy any prerequisites the module may have.

       If you set "skiptest" to true, it will skip the "Build test" stage.  If you set "force" to
       true, it will go over all the stages of the "Build" process again, ignoring any previously
       cached results. It will also ignore a bad return value from "Build test" and still allow
       the operation to return true.

       Returns true on success and false on failure.

       You may then call "$dist->install" on the object to actually install it.

   $dist->install([verbose => BOOL, perl => /path/to/perl])
       Actually installs the created dist.

       Returns true on success and false on failure.
