ExtUtils::CommandPerl(Programmers RefereExtUtils::Command::MM(3p)

NAME

     ExtUtils::Command::MM - Commands for the MM's to use in
     Makefiles

SYNOPSIS

       perl "-MExtUtils::Command::MM" -e "function" "--" arguments...

DESCRIPTION

     FOR INTERNAL USE ONLY!  The interface is not stable.

     ExtUtils::Command::MM encapsulates code which would other-
     wise have to be done with large "one" liners.

     Any $(FOO) used in the examples are make variables, not
     Perl.

     test_harness
           test_harness($verbose, @test_libs);

         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
           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:

             --verbose/-v
             --help/-h

         If no arguments are given to pod2man it will read from
         @ARGV.

     warn_if_old_packlist
           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.

     perllocal_install
             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

     uninstall
             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.
