Subject: Build.PL does not check arguments
Build.PL does not check arguments. There are no warnings from common mistakes such as... perl Build.PL --install_base=/tmp perl Build.PL install_base=/tmp
Yeah, we've had a request from David Wheeler to let M::B use Getopt::Long to process arguments. That's probably a good idea, but it will take some careful thinking & testing to be as backward-compatible as possible. We're awaiting a patch from whomever wants to write one. -Ken
RT-Send-CC: module-build@perl.org
http://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=13276 is another manifestation of the fact that our argument processing is not using Getopt::Long or a reinvention thereof. I'm closing that and will consolidate all future option/argument processing complaints into this wishlist item.
