|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.
