  • Maybe this could encourage you to use ExtUtils::MakeMaker instead?
    • I use both. Here's a typical Build.PL file of mine:

      #!/usr/bin/perl -w

      use strict;
      use Module::Build;

      my $builder = Module::Build->new(
          module_name       => 'aliased',
          license           => 'perl',
          dist_author       => 'Curtis "Ovid" Poe <moc.oohay@eop_divo_sitruc>',
          dist_version_from => 'lib/',
          requires          => {

    • A word on Module::Build

      I actually prefer Module::Build over ExtUtils::MakeMaker simply due to it's extensibility, Module::Install however seems to be very popular these days - I have no experiences with this module however.

      I use Module::Build extensively for non-CPAN projects aswell and this has proven quite resourceful, adding new actions for building databases, adding users etc.

      In my opinion Module::Build is a good module, it scratches my itch.
