Dist::Zilla::Plugin::ModuleBuild::OptionalXS - Build a module that has an XS component that only optionally needs to be built.
In your dist.ini:
This module is a Dist::Zilla plugin for building modules that have an XS component, but that are able to build and function even if there is no C compiler to build the XS component.
Like Dist::Zilla::Plugin::ModuleBuild::XSorPP this module supports
--xs options to override the C compiler detection. With
--pp, the XS component won't be built, even if a C compiler is available. With
--xs, Module::Build will try to build the XS component even if it thinks that a C compiler isn't available (this will almost definitely fail).
When using this plugin,
c_source => 'c' will be added to your Module::Build options. Any include files that you want to use from your
.xs files can be placed in the
c directory. If you want to include
[PPPort] filename = c/ppport.h
to your dist.ini.
