NAME
       ExtUtils::Manifest - utilities to write and check a MANIFEST file

SYNOPSIS
	   use ExtUtils::Manifest qw(...funcs to import...);

	   mkmanifest();

	   my @missing_files	= manicheck;
	   my @skipped		= skipcheck;
	   my @extra_files	= filecheck;
	   my($missing, $extra) = fullcheck;

	   my $found	= manifind();

	   my $manifest = maniread();

	   manicopy($read,$target);

	   maniadd({$file => $comment, ...});

DESCRIPTION
   Functions
       ExtUtils::Manifest exports no functions by default.  The following are exported on request

       mkmanifest
	       mkmanifest();

	   Writes all files in and below the current directory to your MANIFEST.  It works
	   similar to the result of the Unix command

	       find . > MANIFEST

	   All files that match any regular expression in a file MANIFEST.SKIP (if it exists) are
	   ignored.

	   Any existing MANIFEST file will be saved as MANIFEST.bak.

       manifind
	       my $found = manifind();

	   returns a hash reference. The keys of the hash are the files found below the current
	   directory.

       manicheck
	       my @missing_files = manicheck();

	   checks if all the files within a "MANIFEST" in the current directory really do exist.
	   If "MANIFEST" and the tree below the current directory are in sync it silently returns
	   an empty list.  Otherwise it returns a list of files which are listed in the
	   "MANIFEST" but missing from the directory, and by default also outputs these names to
	   STDERR.

       filecheck
	       my @extra_files = filecheck();

	   finds files below the current directory that are not mentioned in the "MANIFEST" file.
	   An optional file "MANIFEST.SKIP" will be consulted. Any file matching a regular
	   expression in such a file will not be reported as missing in the "MANIFEST" file. The
	   list of any extraneous files found is returned, and by default also reported to
	   STDERR.

       fullcheck
	       my($missing, $extra) = fullcheck();

	   does both a manicheck() and a filecheck(), returning then as two array refs.

       skipcheck
	       my @skipped = skipcheck();

	   lists all the files that are skipped due to your "MANIFEST.SKIP" file.

       maniread
	       my $manifest = maniread();
	       my $manifest = maniread($manifest_file);

	   reads a named "MANIFEST" file (defaults to "MANIFEST" in the current directory) and
	   returns a HASH reference with files being the keys and comments being the values of
	   the HASH.  Blank lines and lines which start with "#" in the "MANIFEST" file are
	   discarded.

       maniskip
	       my $skipchk = maniskip();
	       my $skipchk = maniskip($manifest_skip_file);

	       if ($skipchk->($file)) { .. }

	   reads a named "MANIFEST.SKIP" file (defaults to "MANIFEST.SKIP" in the current
	   directory) and returns a CODE reference that tests whether a given filename should be
	   skipped.

       manicopy
	       manicopy(\%src, $dest_dir);
	       manicopy(\%src, $dest_dir, $how);

	   Copies the files that are the keys in %src to the $dest_dir.  %src is typically
	   returned by the maniread() function.

	       manicopy( maniread(), $dest_dir );

	   This function is useful for producing a directory tree identical to the intended
	   distribution tree.

	   $how can be used to specify a different methods of "copying".  Valid values are "cp",
	   which actually copies the files, "ln" which creates hard links, and "best" which
	   mostly links the files but copies any symbolic link to make a tree without any
	   symbolic link.  "cp" is the default.

       maniadd
	     maniadd({ $file => $comment, ...});

	   Adds an entry to an existing MANIFEST unless its already there.

	   $file will be normalized (ie. Unixified).  UNIMPLEMENTED

   MANIFEST
       A list of files in the distribution, one file per line.	The MANIFEST always uses Unix
       filepath conventions even if you're not on Unix.  This means foo/bar style not foo\bar.

       Anything between white space and an end of line within a "MANIFEST" file is considered to
       be a comment.  Any line beginning with # is also a comment. Beginning with
       ExtUtils::Manifest 1.52, a filename may contain whitespace characters if it is enclosed in
       single quotes; single quotes or backslashes in that filename must be backslash-escaped.

	   # this a comment
	   some/file
	   some/other/file	      comment about some/file
	   'some/third file'	      comment

   MANIFEST.SKIP
       The file MANIFEST.SKIP may contain regular expressions of files that should be ignored by
       mkmanifest() and filecheck(). The regular expressions should appear one on each line.
       Blank lines and lines which start with "#" are skipped.	Use "\#" if you need a regular
       expression to start with a "#".

       For example:

	   # Version control files and dirs.
	   \bRCS\b
	   \bCVS\b
	   ,v$
	   \B\.svn\b

	   # Makemaker generated files and dirs.
	   ^MANIFEST\.
	   ^Makefile$
	   ^blib/
	   ^MakeMaker-\d

	   # Temp, old and emacs backup files.
	   ~$
	   \.old$
	   ^#.*#$
	   ^\.#

       If no MANIFEST.SKIP file is found, a default set of skips will be used, similar to the
       example above.  If you want nothing skipped, simply make an empty MANIFEST.SKIP file.

       In one's own MANIFEST.SKIP file, certain directives can be used to include the contents of
       other MANIFEST.SKIP files. At present two such directives are recognized.

       #!include_default
	   This inserts the contents of the default MANIFEST.SKIP file

       #!include /Path/to/another/manifest.skip
	   This inserts the contents of the specified external file

       The included contents will be inserted into the MANIFEST.SKIP file in between #!start
       included /path/to/manifest.skip and #!end included /path/to/manifest.skip markers.  The
       original MANIFEST.SKIP is saved as MANIFEST.SKIP.bak.

   EXPORT_OK
       &mkmanifest, &manicheck, &filecheck, &fullcheck, &maniread, and &manicopy are exportable.

   GLOBAL VARIABLES
       $ExtUtils::Manifest::MANIFEST defaults to "MANIFEST". Changing it results in both a
       different "MANIFEST" and a different "MANIFEST.SKIP" file. This is useful if you want to
       maintain different distributions for different audiences (say a user version and a
       developer version including RCS).

       $ExtUtils::Manifest::Quiet defaults to 0. If set to a true value, all functions act
       silently.

       $ExtUtils::Manifest::Debug defaults to 0.  If set to a true value, or if
       PERL_MM_MANIFEST_DEBUG is true, debugging output will be produced.

DIAGNOSTICS
       All diagnostic output is sent to "STDERR".

       "Not in MANIFEST:" file
	   is reported if a file is found which is not in "MANIFEST".

       "Skipping" file
	   is reported if a file is skipped due to an entry in "MANIFEST.SKIP".

       "No such file:" file
	   is reported if a file mentioned in a "MANIFEST" file does not exist.

       "MANIFEST:" $!
	   is reported if "MANIFEST" could not be opened.

       "Added to MANIFEST:" file
	   is reported by mkmanifest() if $Verbose is set and a file is added to MANIFEST.
	   $Verbose is set to 1 by default.

ENVIRONMENT
       PERL_MM_MANIFEST_DEBUG
	   Turns on debugging

SEE ALSO
       ExtUtils::MakeMaker which has handy targets for most of the functionality.
