blib - Use MakeMaker's uninstalled version of a package SYNOPSIS
perl -Mblib script [args...] perl -Mblib=dir script [args...] DESCRIPTION
Looks for MakeMaker-like 'blib' directory structure starting in dir (or current directory) and working back up to five levels of '..'. Intended for use on command line with -M option as a way of testing arbitrary scripts against an uninstalled version of a package. However it is possible to : use blib; or use blib '..'; etc. if you really must. BUGS
Pollutes global name space for development only task. AUTHOR

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.
