Subject: environment variable to hold repeated options
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 465b
I'm hoping I didn't miss this somewhere in the documentation. It occurs to me that an environment variable similar in intent to PERL_MM_OPT would be useful. I have a private module installation, and I'm forever setting install_base=/home/jwest/.perl for example. I'm not particular on it being an environment variable, but a way to set that option so I can forget it would be nice. This would greatly aid my CPAN / CPANPLUS installations, too. Thanks! --John

I believe this request is satisfied by the new .modulebuildrc feature. I recommend that this bug be closed as FIXED. --Chris
Done, closed. Thanks. -Ken
