Subject: .pm.PL runs in wrong order for WriteMakefile
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 529b
When using the PL_FILES target in WriteMakefile under version 0.87 with a script that produces a module (.pm.PL => .pm), the .PL is executed at the wrong time in the make sequence! That's two steps back, as it were, since one does not have to list .PL files explicitly under Module::Build at all, and MakeMaker at least DWIM. It isn't overwhelmingly critical, as I can work around it by rerunning perl Makefile.PL and make, but it is annoying... Is there a different approach altogether I should be using rather than PL files?

Hi. Not sure how did you write your Makefile.PL and how wrong was its behavior, but anyway, I added a test in the trunk to see if EUMM and MI work in the same manner, and tweaked MI a bit. I hope this would be fixed in the next release (except for rather old EUMM users). Thanks. wrong Added a test in the trunk; Will be fixed in the next release. Thanks.

Hi. 0.95 is out. If you still have the problem, reopen this. Thanks.
