NAME
       Alien::Build::Manual::Alien - General alien author documentation

VERSION
       version 2.37

SYNOPSIS
	perldoc	Alien::Build::Manual::Alien

DESCRIPTION
       The goal	of the Alien namespace is to provide non-CPAN dependencies (so
       called "Alien" dependencies) for	CPAN modules. The history and intent
       of this idea is documented in the documentation-only Alien module.  The
       "Alien-Build" distribution provides a framework for building aliens.
       The intent is to	fix bugs and enhance the interface of a	number of
       common tools so that all	aliens may benefit. The	distribution is	broken
       up into these parts:

       The Alien Installer (configure /	build-time)
	   Alien::Build	and alienfile are used to detect and install aliens.
	   They	are further documented in Alien::Build::Manual::AlienAuthor.

       The Alien Runtime (runtime)
	   Alien::Base is the base class for aliens in the "Alien-Build"
	   system. Its use by Alien consumers is documented in
	   Alien::Build::Manual::AlienUser.

       The Plugin system (configure / build-time)
	   Because many	packages are implemented using different tools,	the
	   detection, build and	install	logic for a particular Alien can vary
	   a lot.  As such, much of Alien::Build is implemented	as a series of
	   plugins that	inherit	from Alien::Build::Plugin.  An overview	of
	   building your own plugins is	documented in
	   Alien::Build::Manual::PluginAuthor.
