NAME ^

Module::Install::Bundle - Bundle distributions along with your distribution

SYNOPSIS ^

Have your Makefile.PL read as follows:

  use inc::Module::Install;
  
  name      'Foo-Bar';
  all_from  'lib/Foo/Bar.pm';
  requires  'Baz' => '1.60';
  
  # one of either:
  bundle    'Baz' => '1.60';
  # OR:
  auto_bundle;
  
  WriteAll;

DESCRIPTION ^

Module::Install::Bundle allows you to bundle a CPAN distribution within your distribution. When your end-users install your distribution, the bundled distribution will be installed along with yours, unless a newer version of the bundled distribution already exists on their local filesystem.

While bundling will increase the size of your distribution, it has several benefits:

  Allows installation of bundled distributions when CPAN is unavailable
  Allows installation of bundled distributions when networking is unavailable
  Allows everything your distribution needs to be packaged in one place

Bundling differs from auto-installation in that when it comes time to install, a bundled distribution will be installed based on the distribution bundled with your distribution, whereas with auto-installation the distibution to be installed will be acquired from CPAN and then installed.
