local-lib-helper - A commandline utility that builds local-lib helper scripts
Although the primary purpose of this distribution is to make it trivial to use a given local::lib you may, as part of a custom build or deployment system, need an easy way to programmatically create the helper scripts for either an activated or precreated local::lib. This script makes that easy. If you are already in a local::lib managed environment this script will detect that fact and automatically install the helpers into the
bin directory of that local::lib. If there is not a currently activated local::lib, you can still install the helpers as long as you've already created a local::lib in the past (say via the self bootstrap method outlined in the documention, or when you specified a
-l option with App::cpanminus). In that case since we can't auto detect the location of the local::lib you need to use the
target option, which should be the root directory of the local::lib (which is the directory that contains the
lib directories of the local::lib you previously created).
This script has the following options, which can also be veiwed in summary by typing
A summary of the help options.
This should be the path to the perl binary that the local::lib is built against. This defaults to the path of the perl binary under which we are currently running. You should probably leave this one alone :)
This is the target directory for the local::lib you want to build the helper script against. By default it will attempt to detect the currently running local::lib and use that. If we can't detect a running local::lib and this option is undef, we die with a message.
This is the name of the helper utility script. It defaults to 'localenv'.
These are the permissions the the helper utility script is set to. By default we set the equivilent of 'chmod 755 [HELPER SCRIPT]'
