NAME

Module::Install::Share - Install non-code files for use during runtime

SYNOPSIS

    # Put everything inside ./share/ into the distribution 'auto' path
    install_share 'share';

    # Same thing as above using the default directory name
    install_share;

DESCRIPTION

As well as Perl modules and Perl binary applications, some distributions need to install read-only data files to a location on the file system for use at run-time.

XML Schemas, YAML data files, and SQLite databases are examples of the sort of things distributions might typically need to have available after installation.

Module::Install::Share is a Module::Install extension that provides commands to allow these files to be installed to the applicable location on disk.

To locate the files after installation so they can be used inside your module, see this extension's companion module File::ShareDir.
