Module::Install::Admin(3)      User Contributed Perl Documentation	Module::Install::Admin(3)

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/.
