Module::Release::PermissionFix - Fixes the permissions on .tar.gz files.
The release-csjewell script will automatically load this module in order to make sure that the permissions on the file uploaded are correct and PAUSE will be able to index it.
The reason for this module is that .tar files created on Windows often have permissions that are insane on Unix systems. PAUSE checks for those, and will not index them.
use Module::Release '2.00_04'; # ... $release->dist; # Needs to be after the last execution of this line. # ... $release->load_mixin( 'Module::Release::PermissionFix' ); $release->fix_permission();
Fixes the permissions on the distribution file (0444 becomes 0664, and 0555 becomes 0755).
