Subject: Module::Build makes empty manpages!
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 339b
Tried to pull up the man page on HTML::Prototype, but it was empty. Upon further investigation, Module::Build builds empty files for all manpages! It *says* it's making them, but it's making empty files, then installs those empty files. Looks like it's true from november 29 on my system, so whatever change happened then, broke things.

Found it! Pod::Man changed on nov 29. You need to edit Module::Build::Base so that it creates a fresh Pod::Man on each file, instead of reusing the same object for all files. That seems to fix it. (I noticed that the *first* manpage was getting made OK, which led me to investigate.)
Thanks, this fix has been made in CVS. -Ken
