NAME

Alien::Build::MM - Alien::Build installer code for ExtUtils::MakeMaker  

VERSION

version 1.67  

SYNOPSIS

In your "Makefile.PL":

 use ExtUtils::MakeMaker;
 use Alien::Build::MM;
 
 my $abmm = Alien::Build::MM->new;
 
 WriteMakefile($abmm->mm_args(
   ABSTRACT     => 'Discover or download and install libfoo',
   DISTNAME     => 'Alien-Libfoo',
   NAME         => 'Alien::Libfoo',
   VERSION_FROM => 'lib/Alien/Libfoo.pm',
   ...
 ));
 
 sub MY::postamble {
   $abmm->mm_postamble;
 }

In your "lib/Alien/Libfoo.pm":

 package Alien::Libfoo;
 use base qw( Alien::Base );
 1;

In your alienfile (needs to be named "alienfile" and should be in the root of your dist):

 use alienfile;

 plugin 'PkgConfig' => 'libfoo';

 share {
   start_url 'http://libfoo.org';
   ...
 };

 

DESCRIPTION

This class allows you to use Alien::Build and Alien::Base with ExtUtils::MakeMaker. It load the alienfile recipe in the root of your Alien dist, updates the prereqs passed into "WriteMakefile" if any are specified by your alienfile or its plugins, and adds a postamble to the "Makefile" that will download/build/test the alienized package as appropriate.

The alienfile must be named "alienfile".

If you are using Dist::Zilla to author your Alien dist, you should consider using the Dist::Zilla::Plugin::AlienBuild plugin.

I personally don't recommend it, but if you want to use Module::Build instead, you can use Alien::Build::MB.  

CONSTRUCTOR

 

new

 my $abmm = Alien::Build::MM->new;

Create a new instance of Alien::Build::MM.  

PROPERTIES

 

build

 my $build = $abmm->build;

The Alien::Build instance.  

alienfile_meta

 my $bool = $abmm->alienfile_meta

Set to a false value, in order to turn off the x_alienfile meta  

METHODS

 

mm_args

 my %args = $abmm->mm_args(%args);

Adjust the arguments passed into "WriteMakefile" as needed by Alien::Build.  

mm_postamble

 my $postamble $abmm->mm_postamble;

Returns the postamble for the "Makefile" needed for Alien::Build. This adds the following "make" targets which are normally called when you run "make all", but can be run individually if needed for debugging.

alien_prefix
Determines the final install prefix ("%{.install.prefix}").
alien_version
Determine the perl_module_version ("%{.runtime.perl_module_version}")
alien_download
Downloads the source from the internet. Does nothing for a system install.
alien_build
Build from source (if a share install). Gather configuration (for either system or share install).
alien_prop
Prints the meta, install and runtime properties for the Alien.
