For reasons [1], I can't run manifypods on a variety of MakeMaker-built CPAN modules, but I should be able to build, test and install fine without the pods. The MM-generated Makefiles usefully provide targets 'pure_all' and 'pure_install' for (presumably) just this sort of purpose; unfortunately the pure_install targets specify 'all' as a dependency, which tries to run manifypods again. I think the intention was that the pure_install targets depend on 'pure_all' instead. Hugo [1] Building in a Linux machine in a VM on a Windows box - it can't run manifypods, cos ':' is illegal in filenames on the underlying filesystem.

A bit later I found there's an additional problem for the (rarer) dist with subdirs: 'make all' is invoked in subdirs regardless of the target in the parent, I think it should rather invoke the same target as was invoked in the parent. I hit that in Proc::ProcessTable, the only one of a dozen-odd dists I built today in that environment. Please let me know if you'd prefer a separate ticket filed for this. Hugo

It seems the word pure is overloaded here. pure_install means only whole files are written, no files (in particular, perllocal.pod) are written to; whereas pure_all means everything needed for tests (thus not including man pages). The two are unrelated. Show quoted text

That does sound like a legitimate problem deserving a solution. Leon
