installing extra file through ExtUtils::MakeMaker

Discussion in 'Perl Misc' started by Abdul-Wahid Paterson, Nov 8, 2004.

  1. Hi,

    I have been using ExtUtils::MakeMaker in a Makefile.PL to package and
    install a perl script and a few perl modules. At the moment my
    Makefile.PL is very simple, I just copied it from a few examples.

    I am now wanting to have a few templates and configuration files
    installed by "make install" but was not sure what I should put in my
    Makefile.PL to acheive this. Can anyone give me any examples of how to
    install extra supporting files?

    Thanks,

    Abdul-Wahid

    Put them in MANIFEST. Better yet, build yourself a good MANIFEST.SKIP
    and run "make manifest" after adding a file.

    Anything better than ExtUtils::MakeMaker ?
