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

NAME
       Module::Install::MakeMaker - Extension Rules for ExtUtils::MakeMaker

SYNOPSIS
       In your Makefile.PL:

	   use inc::Module::Install;
	   WriteMakefile();

DESCRIPTION
       This module is a wrapper around ExtUtils::MakeMaker.  It exports two functions: "prompt"
       (an alias for "ExtUtils::MakeMaker::prompt") and "WriteMakefile".

       The "WriteMakefile" function will pass on keyword/value pair functions to
       "ExtUtils::MakeMaker::WriteMakefile". The required parameters "NAME" and "VERSION" (or
       "VERSION_FROM") are not necessary if it can find them unambiguously in your code.

CONFIGURATION OPTIONS
       This module also adds some Configuration parameters of its own:

   NAME
       The NAME parameter is required by ExtUtils::MakeMaker. If you have a single module in your
       distribution, or if the module name indicated by the current directory exists under lib/,
       this module will use the guessed package name as the default.

       If this module can't find a default for "NAME" it will ask you to specify it manually.

   VERSION
       ExtUtils::MakeMaker requires either the "VERSION" or "VERSION_FROM" parameter.  If this
       module can guess the package's "NAME", it will attempt to parse the "VERSION" from it.

       If this module can't find a default for "VERSION" it will ask you to specify it manually.

MAKE TARGETS
       ExtUtils::MakeMaker provides you with many useful "make" targets. A "make" target is the
       word you specify after "make", like "test" for "make test". Some of the more useful
       targets are:

       o   all

	   This is the default target. When you type "make" it is the same as entering "make
	   all". This target builds all of your code and stages it in the "blib" directory.

       o   test

	   Run your distribution's test suite.

       o   install

	   Copy the contents of the "blib" directory into the appropriate directories in your
	   Perl installation.

       o   dist

	   Create a distribution tarball, ready for uploading to CPAN or sharing with a friend.

       o   clean distclean purge

	   Remove the files created by "perl Makefile.PL" and "make".

       o   help

	   Same as typing "perldoc ExtUtils::MakeMaker".

       This module modifies the behaviour of some of these targets, depending on your
       requirements, and also adds the following targets to your Makefile:

       o   cpurge

	   Just like purge, except that it also deletes the files originally added by this module
	   itself.

       o   chelp

	   Short cut for typing "perldoc Module::Install".

       o   distsign

	   Short cut for typing "cpansign -s", for Module::Signature users to sign the
	   distribution before release.
