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

NAME
       CPANPLUS::Dist::MM - distribution class for MakeMaker related modules

SYNOPSIS
	   $mm = CPANPLUS::Dist::MM->new( module => $modobj );

	   $mm->create;        # runs make && make test
	   $mm->install;       # runs make install

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

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:
	   $mm->status->ACCESSOR

       makefile ()
	   Location of the Makefile (or Build file).  Set to 0 explicitly if something went
	   wrong.

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

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

       prepared ()
	   BOOL indicating if the "prepare" call exited successfully This gets set after "perl
	   Makefile.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 "make"
	   and "make test".

       installed ()
	   BOOL indicating if the module was installed. This gets set after "make install" (or
	   "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 = $dist->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::MM" 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', makemakerflags => 'EXTRA=FLAGS', force =>
       BOOL, verbose => BOOL])
       "prepare" preps a distribution for installation. This means it will run "perl Makefile.PL"
       and determine what prerequisites this distribution declared.

       If you set "force" to true, it will go over all the stages of the "prepare" process again,
       ignoring any previously cached results.

       When running "perl Makefile.PL", the environment variable "PERL5_CPANPLUS_IS_EXECUTING"
       will be set to the full path of the "Makefile.PL" that is being executed. This enables any
       code inside the "Makefile.PL" to know that it is being installed via CPANPLUS.

       Returns true on success and false on failure.

       You may then call "$dist->create" on the object to create the installable files.

   $href = $dist->_find_prereqs( file => '/path/to/Makefile', [verbose => BOOL])
       Parses a "Makefile" for "PREREQ_PM" entries and distills from that any prerequisites
       mentioned in the "Makefile"

       Returns a hash with module-version pairs on success and false on failure.

   $bool = $dist->create([perl => '/path/to/perl', make => '/path/to/make', makeflags =>
       'EXTRA=FLAGS', prereq_target => TARGET, skiptest => BOOL, force => BOOL, verbose => BOOL])
       "create" creates the files necessary for installation. This means it will run "make" and
       "make test".  This will also scan for and attempt to satisfy any prerequisites the module
       may have.

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

   $bool = $dist->install([make => '/path/to/make',  makemakerflags => 'EXTRA=FLAGS', force =>
       BOOL, verbose => BOOL])
       "install" runs the following command:
	   make install

       Returns true on success, false on failure.

   $bool = $dist->write_makefile_pl([force => BOOL, verbose => BOOL])
       This routine can write a "Makefile.PL" from the information in a module object. It is used
       to write a "Makefile.PL" when the original author forgot it (!!).

       Returns 1 on success and false on failure.

       The file gets written to the directory the module's been extracted to.
