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

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       along with yours, unless a newer version of the bundled distribution already exists on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.
