Subject: Build.PL doesn't work
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 875b
Moin, the following Build.PL file #!/usr/bin/perl -w # Dear Distribution Packager. This use of require is intentional. # Module::Install detects Build.PL usage and acts accordingly. require 'Makefile.PL'; does actually not work at all. See here for a CPAN-testers report about a failure: http://www.nntp.perl.org/group/perl.cpan.testers/2007/03/msg437865.html You can replicate this by downloading Devel-Size 0.66 and run the following: perl Build.PL ./Build test This sequence does neither create the C file from XS, nor actually build the .o file. This the test fails. Here is another bugreport, where Build.PL fails (it might be a different cause, tho): http://www.nntp.perl.org/group/perl.cpan.testers/2007/03/msg429372.html For now, I will ripping out every "Build.PL" from my distributions to prevent people from using it :) All the best, tels
Hi. Closed this ticket as Build.PL support by Module::Install has been removed. Thanks. On 2007-3-15 Thu 12:58:30, TELS wrote: Show quoted text
