NAME ^

ppm_install - build and install a distribution via ppm

SYNOPSIS ^

 ppm_install [options] [Module | Distribution]

Options:

 [--version]          : print version information and exit
 [--help]             : print this help screen
 [-r | --remove]      : remove the build directory after installation
 [-i | --ignore]      : ignore any failing test results
 [-f | --force]       : force remaking a distribution
 [--upgrade]          : upgrade via ppm
 [--program]  b=a     : specify "a" to be used for the "b" program
 [ --skip]            : skip running the tests

Additional Arguments:

   Module       : specify a module to fetch (requires CPAN.pm)
   Distribution : specify a distribution to fetch

With no arguments, ppm_install will install a distribution inside the current directory.

DESCRIPTION ^

ppm_install is an interface to the PPM::Make::Install module, and is used to build a PPM (Perl Package Manager) distribution from a CPAN source distribution and then install it with the ppm utility. See PPM::Make for a discussion.

Apart from the options described below, without any arguments ppm_install will assume it is inside an unpacked source distribution and make the corresponding PPM distribution. If it is given an argument of what looks like a module name (eg, Net::FTP), it will use CPAN.pm to look up the corresponding distribution and fetch and build it (module names are case sensistive). Otherwise, additional arguments (eg, package.tar.gz, or http://someplace.org/package.tar.gz) will be interpreted as distributions to fetch and build.

[-i | --ignore]

By default, ppm_install, if it is building the distribution, will die if all tests do not pass. Turning on this option instructs ppm_install to ignore any test failures.

[ --skip ]

Setting this option will skip running any tests supplied with the package.

[-r | --remove]

If specified, the directory used to build the ppm distribution given on the command line will be removed after a successful install.

[-f | --force]

By default, if ppm_install detects a blib/ directory, it will assume the distribution has already been made, and will not remake it. This option forces remaking the distribution.

[--upgrade]

Will do an upgrade of the specified package, if applicable.

[--help]

This prints out a short help screen and exits.

[--version]

This prints out some version information and exits.
