ExtUtils::MakeMaker::CUseriContributed Perl DoExtUtils::MakeMaker::CPANfile(3)

NAME
       ExtUtils::MakeMaker::CPANfile - cpanfile	support	for EUMM

SYNOPSIS
	   # Makefile.PL
	   use ExtUtils::MakeMaker::CPANfile;

	   WriteMakefile(
	     NAME => 'Foo::Bar',
	     AUTHOR => 'A.U.Thor <author@cpan.org>',
	   );

	   # cpanfile
	   requires 'ExtUtils::MakeMaker' => '6.17';
	   on test => sub {
	     requires 'Test::More' => '0.88';
	   };

DESCRIPTION
       ExtUtils::MakeMaker::CPANfile loads "cpanfile" in your distribution and
       modifies	parameters for "WriteMakefile" in your Makefile.PL.  Just use
       it instead of ExtUtils::MakeMaker (which	should be loaded internally),
       and prepare "cpanfile".

       As of version 0.03, ExtUtils::MakeMaker::CPANfile also removes
       WriteMakefile parameters	that the installed version of
       ExtUtils::MakeMaker doesn't know, to avoid warnings.

LIMITATION
   complex version ranges
       As of this writing, complex version ranges are simply ignored.

   dynamic config
       Strictly	speaking, "cpanfile" is	a Perl script, and may have some
       conditions in it. That said, you	don't need to run Makefile.PL to
       determine prerequisites in most cases. Hence, as	of 0.06,
       ExtUtils::MakeMaker::CPANfile sets "dynamic_config" to false by
       default.	If you do need a CPAN installer	to run Makefile.PL to
       customize prerequisites dynamically, set	"dynamic_config" to true
       explicitly (via META_ADD/META_MERGE).

FOR MODULE AUTHORS
       Though the minimum version requirement of ExtUtils::MakeMaker is
       arbitrary set to	6.17 (the one bundled in Perl 5.8.1), you need at
       least EUMM 6.52 (with CONFIGURE_REQUIRES	support) when you release a
       distribution.
