Subject: This distro should not provide the DynaLoader package
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 434b
MetaCPAN says that this distro provides the DynaLoader package because of this line - https://metacpan.org/source/BINGOS/ExtUtils-MakeMaker-7.38/lib/ExtUtils/Mkbootstrap.pm#PDynaLoader This can be fixed with a simple "hide the package from PAUSE" trick: package # Hide from PAUSE DynaLoader; Splitting the `package` declaration into two lines keeps PAUSE from seeing it but does not change how Perl interprets the code.

It is listed in the metafiles as a no_index package, so I would guess MetaCPAN is not implementing that. Leon

Ah, interesting. I will report this as a MetaCPAN bug then and you can close this.
