ExtUtils::Command::MM(3Perl Programmers	Reference GuidExtUtils::Command::MM(3)

NAME
       ExtUtils::Command::MM - Commands	for the	MM's to	use in Makefiles

SYNOPSIS
	 perl "-MExtUtils::Command::MM"	-e "function" "--" arguments...

DESCRIPTION
       FOR INTERNAL USE	ONLY!  The interface is	not stable.

       ExtUtils::Command::MM encapsulates code which would otherwise have to
       be done with large "one"	liners.

       Any $(FOO) used in the examples are make	variables, not Perl.

       test_harness
	     test_harness($verbose, @test_libs);

	   Runs	the tests on @ARGV via Test::Harness passing through the
	   $verbose flag.  Any @test_libs will be unshifted onto the test's
	   @INC.

	   @test_libs are run in alphabetical order.

       pod2man
	     pod2man( '--option=value',
		      $podfile1	=> $manpage1,
		      $podfile2	=> $manpage2,
		      ...
		    );

	     # or args on @ARGV

	   pod2man() is	a function performing most of the duties of the
	   pod2man program.  Its arguments are exactly the same	as pod2man as
	   of 5.8.0 with the addition of:

	       --perm_rw   octal permission to set the resulting manpage to

	   And the removal of:

	       --verbose/-v
	       --help/-h

	   If no arguments are given to	pod2man	it will	read from @ARGV.

	   If Pod::Man is unavailable, this function will warn and return
	   undef.

       warn_if_old_packlist
	     perl "-MExtUtils::Command::MM" -e warn_if_old_packlist <somefile>

	   Displays a warning that an old packlist file	was found.  Reads the
	   filename from @ARGV.

       perllocal_install
	       perl "-MExtUtils::Command::MM" -e perllocal_install
		   <type> <module name>	<key> <value> ...

	       # VMS only, key|value pairs come	on STDIN
	       perl "-MExtUtils::Command::MM" -e perllocal_install
		   <type> <module name>	< <key>|<value>	...

	   Prints a fragment of	POD suitable for appending to perllocal.pod.
	   Arguments are read from @ARGV.

	   'type' is the type of what you're installing.  Usually 'Module'.

	   'module name' is simply the name of your module.  (Foo::Bar)

	   Key/value pairs are extra information about the module.  Fields
	   include:

	       installed into	   which directory your	module was out into
	       LINKTYPE		   dynamic or static linking
	       VERSION		   module version number
	       EXE_FILES	   any executables installed in	a space	seperated
				   list

       uninstall
	       perl "-MExtUtils::Command::MM" -e uninstall <packlist>

	   A wrapper around ExtUtils::Install::uninstall().  Warns that
	   uninstallation is deprecated	and doesn't actually perform the
	   uninstallation.

       test_s
	      perl "-MExtUtils::Command::MM" -e	test_s <file>

	   Tests if a file exists and is not empty (size > 0).	Exits with 0
	   if it does, 1 if it does not.

       cp_nonempty
	     perl "-MExtUtils::Command::MM" -e cp_nonempty <srcfile> <dstfile> <perm>

	   Tests if the	source file exists and is not empty (size > 0).	If it
	   is not empty	it copies it to	the given destination with the given
	   permissions.
