Subject: Docs on manipulating %Config unclear

Module::Build::Config is not documented which leaves the proper use of $self->{config} up in the air as illustrated by [ 27994]. Maybe it shouldn't be, but the docs are a little confusing on that point. From Module::Build ----------------- The build process also relies heavily on the module, and all the key=value pairs in are available in $self->{config}. If the user wishes to override any of the values in, she may specify them like so: perl Build.PL --config cc=gcc --config ld=gcc ----------------- This suggests to grab at $self->{config} and use it as a hash ref. That's wrong. Since $self->{config} is grabbing at internals that's user-level documentation, not authoring, its mention should probably just be deleted. From Module::Build::API ------------------ config($key) config($key, $value) config() [deprecated] [version 0.22] With a single argument $key, returns the value associated with that key in the hash, including any changes the author or user has specified. With $key and $value arguments, sets the value for future callers of config($key). With no arguments, returns a hash reference containing all such key-value pairs. This usage is deprecated, though, because it's a resource hog and violates encapsulation. ----------------- This appears to be the correct way to play with %Config in MB but its the only mention I can find. A cookbook mention would be helpful.

The issues in this ticket are still there. Additionally... In Module::Build::API it's unclear what "config_data" refers to. Module::Build mentions a config_data action but the documentation is nothing but "..."
