NAMEExtUtils::Command::MM - Commands for the MM's to use in Makefiles
perl "-MExtUtils::Command::MM" -e "function" "--" arguments...
DESCRIPTIONFOR INTERNAL USE ONLY! The interface is not stable.
ExtUtils::Command::MM encapsulates code which would otherwise have to be done with large ``one'' liners.
Any $(FOO) used in the examples are make variables, not Perl.
Runs the tests on @ARGV via Test::Harness passing through the $verbose flag. Any @test_libs will be unshifted onto the test's @INC.
@test_libs are run in alphabetical order.
pod2man( '--option=value', $podfile1 => $manpage1, $podfile2 => $manpage2, ... );
# or args on @ARGV
pod2man() is a function performing most of the duties of the pod2man program. Its arguments are exactly the same as pod2man as of 5.8.0 with the addition of:
--perm_rw octal permission to set the resulting manpage to
And the removal of:
If no arguments are given to pod2man it will read from @ARGV.
perl "-MExtUtils::Command::MM" -e warn_if_old_packlist <somefile>
Displays a warning that an old packlist file was found. Reads the filename from @ARGV.
perl "-MExtUtils::Command::MM" -e perllocal_install <type> <module name> <key> <value> ...
# VMS only, key|value pairs come on STDIN perl "-MExtUtils::Command::MM" -e perllocal_install <type> <module name> < <key>|<value> ...
Prints a fragment of POD suitable for appending to perllocal.pod. Arguments are read from @ARGV.
'type' is the type of what you're installing. Usually 'Module'.
'module name' is simply the name of your module. (Foo::Bar)
Key/value pairs are extra information about the module. Fields include:
installed into which directory your module was out into LINKTYPE dynamic or static linking VERSION module version number EXE_FILES any executables installed in a space seperated list
perl "-MExtUtils::Command::MM" -e uninstall <packlist>
A wrapper around ExtUtils::Install::uninstall(). Warns that uninstallation is deprecated and doesn't actually perform the uninstallation.
