Anything better than ExtUtils::MakeMaker ?

Discussion in 'Perl Misc' started by Irving Kimura, May 11, 2004.

  1. I once read in c.l.p.m. something to the effect that ExtUtils::MakeMaker
    was really a short-term stop-gap solution, never intended to become
    the workhorse module that it is today. (Cynics may reply that Perl
    itself started out as a "short-term stop-gap solution").

    I don't know how much truth there is to all of this, but I have to
    say that I find ExtUtils::MakeMaker inflexible and all-around
    difficult to use. Is there anything better out there?

    Thanks!

    Module::Build claims to be a replacement for ExtUtils::MakeMaker.
