Subject: inappropriate files being installed into PERL5LIB
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 510b
These files are being installed into PERL5LIB and do not belong there - they are not a .pod file that can be viewed with 'perldoc', nor do they contain executable code. The proper location for supporting data files that accompany a distribution is in a sharedir -- use File::ShareDir::Install within Makefile.PL to set up the directory, and access the directory name from code using File::ShareDir. lib/Encode/Changes.e2x lib/Encode/Makefile_PL.e2x lib/Encode/README.e2x lib/Encode/_PM.e2x lib/Encode/_T.e2x

I am sorry but I have to turn this down for compatibility's sake. Encode is in perl core, while File::ShareDir is not. FYI These files are required for enc2xs utility command. Dan the Maintainer Thereof On Fri Oct 24 19:47:19 2014, ETHER wrote: Show quoted text

Ok, I'll reopen if I can get File::ShareDir into core :)
