       pptemplate - script to generate Makefile.PL and PP file skeleton

	       # generate Makefile.PL and mymodule.pd in CWD
	       pptemplate PDL::MyModule;

       The pptemplate script is	the easiest way	to start a new module for PDL
       that contains PP	code (see also PDL::PP). The usage is simply

	 pptemplate modulename;

       As a result pptemplate will generate a perl Makefile for	the new	module
       (Makefile.PL) that contains the minimal structure to generate a module
       from PP code and	also a skeleton	file for your new module.

       The file	will be	called mymod.pd	if you called "pptemplate" as

	 pptemplate PDL::CleverAlgs::Mymod;

       I suppose you can work out the naming rule ";)".	If not resort to
       experimentation or the source code.

       "pptemplate" will refuse	to overwrite existing files of the same	name
       to avoid	accidents. Move	them out of the	way if you really want to
       scrap them.

       Currently there is only the "-i"	option which switches "pptemplate"
       into the	so called internal mode.  It should only be used when you are
       starting	a new module within the	main PDL tree that is supposed to be
       part of the PDL distribution and	the normal PDL build process, e.g.

	  cd PDL/IO;
	  mkdir	Mpthree; cd Mpthree;
	  pptemplate -i	PDL::IO::Mpthree;

       Maybe ";)".  Feedback and bug reports are welcome.
