NAME ^

File::ShareDir::Install - Install shared files

SYNOPSIS ^

    use ExtUtils::MakeMaker;
    use File::ShareDir::Install;

    install_share 'share';
    install_share dist => 'dist-share';
    install_share module => 'My::Module' => 'other-share';

    WriteMakefile( ... );       # As you normaly would

    package MY;
    use File::ShareDir::Install qw(postamble);

DESCRIPTION ^

File::ShareDir::Install allows you to install read-only data files from a distribution. It is a companion module to File::ShareDir, which allows you to locate these files after installation.

It is a port of Module::Install::Share to ExtUtils::MakeMaker with the improvement of only installing the files you want; .svn and other source-control junk will be ignored.

EXPORT ^

install_share

    install_share $dir;
    install_share dist => $dir;
    install_share module => $module, $dir;

Causes all the files in $dir and its sub-directories to be installed into a per-dist or per-module share directory. Must be called before WriteMakefile.

The first 2 forms are equivalent.

The files will be installed when you run make install.

To locate the files after installation so they can be used inside your module, see File::ShareDir.

    my $dir = File::ShareDir::module_dir( $module );

Note that if you make multiple calls to install_share on different directories that contain the same filenames, the last of these calls takes precedence. In other words, if you do:

    install_share 'share1';
    install_share 'share2';

And both share1 and share2 contain a fill called info, the file share2/info will be installed into your dist_dir().

postamble

Exported into the MY package. Only documented here if you need to write your own postamble.

    package MY;
    use File::ShareDir::Install;

    sub postamble {
        my $self = shift;
        my @ret = File::ShareDir::Install::postamble( $self );
        # ... add more things to @ret;
        return join "\n", @ret;
    }
