Subject: ./Build install should not invoke ./Build docs
Download (untitled) / with headers

./Build install mistakely invokes `./Build docs', so there is no way for me to only install pod/code, without building docs (man pages should not be forced upon me)

This isn't going to change, actually. The standard mantra of perl Build.PL Build test Build install should install man pages by default, just as it does under MakeMaker, since that's what's in people's expectations. I can think of two options that might help you, though: we could add a 'docs' parameter to the 'install' action, default 1, and you could set it to 0. Or perhaps the new plugins mechanism (which still seems a ways off) could help. -Ken

that sounds good. perhaps we could have an option to differentiate between the types of docs being built (maybe I want man, but don't want html)?

This ticket appears that it should simply be re-resolved now.

Can you set --install_path man= --install_path html= to prevent docs from building?
