VERSION ^

This document references version 0.09 of ExtUtils::ModuleMaker::PBP, released to CPAN on April 5, 2006.

DESCRIPTION ^

ExtUtils::ModuleMaker::PBP subclasses Perl extension ExtUtils::ModuleMaker. If you are not already familiar with ExtUtils::ModuleMaker, you should read its documentation now. The documentation provided below is intended primarily for future maintainers and extenders of ExtUtils::ModuleMaker::PBP.

The default value settings and methods described below supersede the similarly named methods in ExtUtils::ModuleMaker. When used as described herein, they will create a CPAN-ready Perl distribution the content of whose files reflects programming practices recommended by Damian Conway in his book Perl Best Practices (O'Reilly, 2005) http://www.oreilly.com/catalog/perlbp/.

USAGE ^

The easiest way to get started with ExtUtils::ModuleMaker::PBP is to use the mmkrpbp utility included in this distribution. mmkrpbp is basically a clone of the modulemaker utility included with ExtUtils::ModuleMaker. To get started with mmkrpbp, simply go to the command-prompt and enter:

    %    mmkrpbp

Then, answer the questions at each prompt. In many cases, you will simply have to type a single letter or number to make your selections. Please see the documentation for mmkrpbp and modulemaker.
