Module Version: 1.201   Source  

NAME ^

Dist::Zilla::Plugin::MakeMaker::SkipInstall - skip the install rule of MakeMaker

VERSION ^

version 1.201

SYNOPSIS ^

In your dist.ini file:

    [MakeMaker::SkipInstall]

DESCRIPTION ^

This small plugin will edit the Makefile.PL file, and override the install target to become a no-op.

This will make your module fail the install phase. It will be built, and tested but will never be installed.

The most common use for this techinique is for Task modules. Without a proper install phase, you can install your Task module repetedly.

CREDITS ^

The technique was described by Marcel Gruenauer (hanekomu) in his article "Repeatedly installing Task::* distributions":

http://hanekomu.at/blog/dev/20091005-1227-repeatedly_installing_task_distributions.html

The author just wrapped the concept into a Dist::Zilla plugin.
