NAME

Alien::Build::MM - Alien::Build installer code for ExtUtils::MakeMaker

VERSION

version 1.82_01

SYNOPSIS

In your Makefile.PL:

 use ExtUtils::MakeMaker;
 use Alien::Build::MM;
 
 my $abmm = Alien::Build::MM->new;
 
 WriteMakefile($abmm->mm_args(
   ABSTRACT     => 'Discover or download and install libfoo',
   DISTNAME     => 'Alien-Libfoo',
   NAME         => 'Alien::Libfoo',
   VERSION_FROM => 'lib/Alien/Libfoo.pm',
   ...
 ));
 
 sub MY::postamble {
   $abmm->mm_postamble(@_);
 }
 
 sub MY::install {
   $abmm->mm_install(@_);
 }

In your lib/Alien/Libfoo.pm:

 package Alien::Libfoo;
 use base qw( Alien::Base );
 1;

In your alienfile (needs to be named alienfile and should be in the root of your dist):

 use alienfile;
 
 plugin 'PkgConfig' => 'libfoo';
 
 share {
   start_url 'http://libfoo.org';
   ...
 };

DESCRIPTION

This class allows you to use Alien::Build and Alien::Base with ExtUtils::MakeMaker. It load the alienfile recipe in the root of your Alien dist, updates the prereqs passed into WriteMakefile if any are specified by your alienfile or its plugins, and adds a postamble to the Makefile that will download/build/test the alienized package as appropriate.

The alienfile must be named alienfile.

If you are using Dist::Zilla to author your Alien dist, you should consider using the Dist::Zilla::Plugin::AlienBuild plugin.

I personally don't recommend it, but if you want to use Module::Build instead, you can use Alien::Build::MB.

CONSTRUCTOR

new

 my $abmm = Alien::Build::MM->new;

Create a new instance of Alien::Build::MM.

PROPERTIES

build

 my $build = $abmm->build;

The Alien::Build instance.

alienfile_meta

 my $bool = $abmm->alienfile_meta

Set to a false value, in order to turn off the x_alienfile meta

clean_install

 my $bool = $abmm->clean_install;

Set to a true value, in order to clean the share directory prior to installing. If you use this you have to make sure that you install the install handler in your Makefile.PL:

 $abmm = Alien::Build::MM->new(
   clean_install => 1,
 );
 
 ...
 
 sub MY::install {
   $abmm->mm_install(@_);
 }

METHODS

mm_args

 my %args = $abmm->mm_args(%args);

Adjust the arguments passed into WriteMakefile as needed by Alien::Build.

mm_postamble

 my $postamble $abmm->mm_postamble;
 my $postamble $abmm->mm_postamble($mm);

Returns the postamble for the Makefile needed for Alien::Build. This adds the following make targets which are normally called when you run make all, but can be run individually if needed for debugging.

alien_prefix

Determines the final install prefix (%{.install.prefix}).

alien_version

Determine the perl_module_version (%{.runtime.perl_module_version})

alien_download

Downloads the source from the internet. Does nothing for a system install.

alien_build

Build from source (if a share install). Gather configuration (for either system or share install).

alien_prop, alien_prop_meta, alien_prop_install, alien_prop_runtime

Prints the meta, install and runtime properties for the Alien.

alien_realclean, alien_clean

Removes the alien specific files. These targets are executed when you call the realclean and clean targets respectively.

alien_clean_install

Cleans out the Alien's share directory. Caution should be used in invoking this target directly, as if you do not understand what you are doing you are likely to break your already installed Alien.

mm_install

 sub MY::install {
   $abmm->mm_install(@_);
 }

EXPERIMENTAL

Adds an install rule to clean the final install dist directory prior to installing.
