Subject: An empty MANIFEST.SKIP with generate a blank MANIFEST
If you create an MANIFEST.SKIP file with no entries. When you run the perl Build.PL manifest command it will remove all the entries from the MANIFEST file! I found this a little bit suprising and scared the hell out of me the first time I encountered this! If I delete the MANIFEST.SKIP file, it will generate a normal MANIFEST file. I suggest that a empty MANIFEST.SKIP file should work the same as if it does not exist.
Hi, The creation of the MANIFEST file and the reading of the MANIFEST.SKIP file are all handled by the ExtUtils::Manifest module, so it must be a bug there. I'll move this bug over to the ExtUtils- MakeMaker queue where ExtUtils::Manifest lives, you may wish to re-visit this thread and add the version of ExtUtils::Manifest that you're using. -Ken
