Subject: parse_args overrides values provided by CONFIGURE
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 459b
Hi, values passed on the command-line (e.g. perl Makefile.PL INC=-Ifoo) unconditionally override the values returned by the coderef provided as the CONFIGURE attribute to WriteMakefile. This only happens for the top-level Makefile.PL (when the distribution has more than one). I can't decide whether this is a feature or a bug; I think it should at least be documented. Regards Mattia https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=21492 for an example
