Subject: build script is evil
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 369b
Current build system check for btparse in a sibling directory, and if not present, download it from CPAN. This is an ugly hack, only designed for personal conveniance, which makes packaging harder. Please use standard dependency checking, which is to check for headers and libs in standard locations, and fails if not found, instead of attempting to reinvent the wheel.
Subject: Text-BibTeX relies on files included only in source distribution of btparse
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 267b
Text-BibTeX uses bib files for testing purposes, only included in source distribution of btparse. Those files should either get installed by btparse itself, or duplicated in Text-BibTeX archive, so as to not rely on the presence of a btparse source tree for building.

Patches are welcome! At the moment I do not have time to make it work properly as I wish with Pkg-Config. Will work on that later. Sorry.

0.40 includes the C source together with the Perl source therefore fixing this. I am *REALLY SORRY* for the time taken, but this module wasn't my priority for some time (other personal afairs). Kindest regards, Alberto
