NAME

Module::Install-Cookbook - A Cornucopiæ of Module::Install Recipes

DESCRIPTION

It's a lot easier for most of us to cook a meal from a recipe, rather than just throwing things into a pot until something edible forms. So it is with programming as well. Module::Install makes writing Perl module installers as easy as possible. Having a set of easy to understand samples, makes it simpler yet.

This Cookbook is intended to be an ever-growing repository of small yet complete coding examples; each showing how to accomplish a particular task with Module::Install. Each example is followed by a short discussion, explaining in detail the particular features that are being demonstrated.

Guten Appetit!

Replacing ExtUtils::MakeMaker

Problem

As a CPAN author, you are likely to have some ExtUtils::MakeMaker based Makefile.PL already. You want to take advantage of cool features offered by Module::Install extensions, but why fix something that's not broken?

Solution

The fix turns out to be extremely simple. Where you had:

    use ExtUtils::MakeMaker;
    WriteMakefile( NAME => "Foo::Bar" );

Now just write:

    use inc::Module::Install;
    WriteMakefile( NAME => "Foo::Bar" );

Presto! Your Makefile.PL is now ready to receive all sort of magic extensions; see below for details.
