NAME

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

VERSION

version 0.81_04

SYNOPSIS

In your Makefile.PL:

 use ExtUtils::MakeMaker;
 use FFI::Build::MM;
 
 my $fbmm = Alien::Build::MM->new;
 
 WriteMakefile($fbmm->mm_args(
   ABSTRACT     => 'My FFI extension',
   DISTNAME     => 'Foo-Bar-Baz-FFI',
   NAME         => 'Foo::Bar::Baz::FFI',
   VERSION_FROM => 'lib/Foo/Bar/Baz/FFI.pm',
   ...
 ));
 
 sub MY::postamble {
   $fbmm->mm_postamble;
 }

Then put the C, C++ or Fortran files in ./ffi for your runtime library and ./t/ffi for your test time library.

DESCRIPTION

This module provides a thin layer between FFI::Build and ExtUtils::MakeMaker. Its interface is influenced by the design of Alien::Build::MM. The idea is that for your distribution you throw some C, C++ or Fortran source files into a directory called ffi and these files will be compiled and linked into a library that can be used by your module. There is a control file ffi/*.fbx which can be used to control the compiler and linker options. (options passed directly into FFI::Build). The interface for this file is still under development.

CONSTRUCTOR

new

 my $fbmm = FFI::Build::MM->new;

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

METHODS

mm_args

 my %new_args = $fbmm->mm_args(%old_args);

This method does two things:

reads the arguments to determine sensible defaults (library name, install location, etc).
adjusts the arguments as necessary and returns an updated set of arguments.

mm_postamble

 my $postamble = $fbmm->mm_postamble;

This returns the Makefile postamble used by ExtUtils::MakeMaker. The synopsis above for how to invoke it properly. It adds the following Make targets:

fbx_build

build the main runtime library in ./ffi.

fbx_test

Build the test library in ./t/ffi.

fbx_clean

Clean any runtime or test libraries already built.

Normally you do not need to build these targets manually, they will be built automatically at the appropriate stage.
