Subject: How do you set INSTALLDIRS?
There appears to be no way to set INSTALLDIRS via Module::Install. This is very important for dual-lifed modules such as Scalar-List-Utils so they can properly default to installing into the core library directories.

This works now via: installdirs 'site'; (I guess this just didn't make it into the docs for 0.65 :) all the best, tels

However it has now finally made it into the docs for what will be 0.78, even though it's worked long before that revision. The specific changes can be found in svn r4044. Since this is now documented, and it works, I'm resolving this ticket. ;) Cheerio, Paul
