Subject: Debugging mode enabled when installed via CPANPLUS
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 369b
In your Makefile.PL, you have the following code: if (@ARGV) { warn "Configuring a debugging build of PadWalker\n"; $DEBUGGING = '-DPADWALKER_DEBUGGING'; } Unfortunately, many people configure CPAN or CPANPLUS to automatically add certain arguments to the Makefile.PL. This causes PadWalker to automatically be built with debugging enabled. Cheers, Ovid

Oh dear! Thanks for letting me know. Why do they do that? What arguments do people pass to their Makefile.PL? (Most Makefile.PL's just ignore @ARGV, so I'm trying to work out what good it would do to pass arguments by default.) Given that the command line arguments are used for other things, what's the best way to pass a debug-mode flag? (Just look for a '-d' argument?) Robin

D'oh! That shows how much I've forgotten about MakeMaker! *ahem* Thanks again. I'll fix it properly now... Robin
This is fixed in version 0.13, which is on its way to CPAN. Thanks for reporting it!
