Subject: can not change POSTOP makefile macro
I want to change the POSTOP macro definition in the generated makefile. How do I do it? According to the ExtUtils::MM_Unix source code, the value of POSTOP can be changed by providing an argument to the dist() function. However, the function Module::Install::Makefile::write() does NOT allow anything to get passed in to the dist() function -- nothing except its own hardcoded PREOP value, that is. 8-( Please fix M::I so that I can call dist({POSTOP=>'my-postop-command'}) in Makefile.PL -- - - Martin 'Kingpin' Thurn
And I want to be able to set the PREOP macro to something of my own devising, rather than the default Module::Install::Admin->dist_preop() which is neither defined nor documented. Come on guys! You've broken basic ExtUtil::MM behavior for no good reason! John
Hi. This can be done by 1) using "WriteMakefile" interface (of MI) for easy conversion from EUMM, 2) or (previously undocumented) "makemaker_args" command which takes the same args with "WriteMakefile". API doc is on the way. Thanks. On 2006-7-31 Mon 16:11:39, MTHURN wrote:

Hi. Module::Install 0.96/0.97 with an API document is out. Thanks.
