  • Module::Build (Score:4, Interesting)

    by acme (189) on 2003.03.09 6:24 (#17822) Homepage Journal
    Trelane asked me about Module::Build, which uses Build.PL instead of Makefile.PL. Well, there are no distributions on CPAN which use Build.PL instead of Makefile.PL. However, there are 16 distributions which use both: Acme-Hello-0.02, Apache-Filter-1.022, B-Generate-1.06, Class-Container-0.10, Crypt-SKey-0.06, HTML-SimpleParse-0.11, Module-Build-0.16, Test-Signature-1.03, Text-WikiFormat-0.6, Thesaurus-0.21, WWW-SherlockSearch-0.14, WWW-Shorten-1.5.6, WWW-Yahoo-Groups-1.7.7, XML-RSS-Aggregate-0.02, optimize-0.03, types-0.05.

    I expect this number to increase as everyone sees how cool and fast Module::Build is.

    • And better advertised [].
      Hmm... on the to-do list: next time I've something to change in them, port my CPAN modules to Module::Build. And figure out how to do it properly [].
    • Of course, to show that another way:

        - B-Generate-1.06
        - optimize-0.03
        - types-0.05
        - Acme-Hello-0.02
        - WWW-SherlockSearch-0.14
        - XML-RSS-Aggregate-0.02
        - Text-WikiFormat-0.6
        - Thesaurus-0.21
        - Apache-Filter-1.022
        - Class-Container-0.10
        - Crypt-SKey-0.06
        - HTML-SimpleParse-0.11
        - Module-Build-0.16
        - Test-Signature-1.03
        - WWW-Shorten-1.5.6
        - WWW-Yahoo-Groups-1.

        Your wish is my command. There are 66 distributions on CPAN with SIGNATURE files: Acme-Hello-0.02, Apache-Filter-HanConvert-0.02, Attribute-Handlers-0.78, CPANPLUS-0.042, Convert-CharMap-0.01, Convert-EastAsianWidth-0.01, Convert-GeekCode-0.5, Crypt-CAST5-0.02, Crypt-CAST5_PP-1.02, Crypt-OpenPGP-1.03, Devel-Hints-0.03, Disassemble-X86-0.13, Encode-HanConvert-0.24, Encode-HanDetect-0.01, Encode-compat-0.05, ExtUtils-AutoInstall-0.45, Game-3D-0.03, Game-3D-World-0.01, Games-AIBots-0.03, Geography-Country-Util
        • Thanks for that!

          ABERGMAN: 4
          AUTRIJUS: 38
          BOBMATH: 3
          BTROTT: 1
          CHROMATIC: 1
          GOZER: 1
          KANE: 1
          RBDAVISON: 2
          SIMON: 5
          SPOON: 3
          TELS: 7

          Not many surprises there. One expects Autrijus and Kane. I expect me. We have a couple who also Module::Built. Not a bad representation.
