Subject: Check timestamp of Build.PL when resuming
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 577b
One nice feature of MakeMaker is that it notices when you have altered Makefile.PL. Some code roughly like this should be added to resume() if (!$self->up_to_date("Build.PL", $self->{properties}{build_script})) { warn "Warning: Build.PL has been altered. Run 'perl Build.PL' again\n"; } It's not obvious to me what exactly should be done. The options are: * print a warning * die * re-run Build.PL ourselves (carefully reconstructing args) Even fancier, we could detect a new version of Module::Build and insist the build script be reconstructed in that case too.
I've added a warning for the next release. -Ken
