Subject: Easier declaration of script_files
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 645b
It appears that if one has a bunch of scripts they want to have installed they have to be individually spelled out in script_files. script_files => [qw(bin/this bin/that bin/other)], This seems like a bit of unnecessary work and violates the expectation set up by the autodetection done in lib/. So here's some suggestions. * Have script_files default to everything in bin. I believe this is the least surprising behavior. * If script_files is given a directory, consider each file in that directory tree as a script to be installed. This avoids having to remember to add to the script_files list every time you add a program.
