Subject: Add a Build.bat under Windows
Download (untitled) / with headers

Current the instructions for using Module::Build vary on different platforms. On some it is perl Build.PL ./Build ./Build test ./Build install on others it is perl Build.PL perl Build perl Build test perl Build install And on others with non-PATH Perl it is even C:\perl\bin\perl.exe Build.PL C:\perl\bin\perl.exe Build C:\perl\bin\perl.exe Build test C:\perl\bin\perl.exe Build install This gets really confusing. On Windows at least, it should be relatively straight forward to write a bat file that launches perl Build in the right way based on how Build.PL was called. This would at least mean Build, Build test, Build install would work on Windows.

This is basically done. For the record, it was nowhere near straightforward. The trick is getting the 'realclean' action to remove the .bat file while it's running. -Ken
