Module::Install::ManifestSkip - Generate a MANIFEST.SKIP file
use inc::Module::Install; all_from 'lib/Foo.pm'; manifest_skip; WriteAll;
This module generates a
MANIFEST.SKIP file for you (using Module::Manifest::Skip) that contains the common files that people do not want in their
MANIFEST files. The SKIP file is generated each time that you (the module author) run
You can add your own custom entries at the top of the
MANIFEST file. Just put a blank line after your entries, and they will be left alone.
This module also adds 'MANIFEST' to the
clean_files() list so that
make clean will remove your
If you don't plan on adding anything to the stock MANIFEST.SKIP and just want
make clean to delete it, say this:
One school of thought for release management is that you never commit your
MANIFEST file. You just generate it using
make manifest, right before releasing a module, and then delete it afterwards.
This is good because you never forget to add new files to your
MANIFEST. The only problems are that you always need to generate a
MANIFEST.SKIP file, and you need to add
MANIFEST to your clean_files, or delete it by hand. This module does these things for you.
