Subject: subs from uninstalled plugins fail with surprising compilation error.
Date: Sun, 18 Jul 2010 01:48:12 +0100
To: bugs-Module-Install@rt.cpan.org
From: Hakim Cassimally <hakim.cassimally@gmail.com>
I tried to follow instructions in Module::Install::ReadmeFromPod and got the following error: $ perl Makefile.PL include /home/hakim/other_repos/Harold/inc/Module/Install.pm String found where operator expected at Makefile.PL line 7, near "readme_from 'lib/Harold.pm'" (Do you need to predeclare readme_from?) syntax error at Makefile.PL line 7, near "readme_from 'lib/Harold.pm'" Execution of Makefile.PL aborted due to compilation errors. Of course the problem is that I didn't have Module::Install::ReadmeFromPod installed... but it seems the way the plugin system works means that this is a syntax error rather than an indication to install the plugin.
