in thread non-CPAN module distributions

I don't think the NAME setting affects what gets installed at all. What happens when you set it to OtherUtil? There are definitely distributions on CPAN that have multiple module namespaces and they don't appear to be doing anything special in their Makefile.PL to accomplish this. Maybe you could post your Makefile.PL here?

    OK, I set the NAME setting to something other than one of my top level module names (NAME => 'LocalScripts'). It's really for local use only anyway. But, since NAME isn't one of the module names, it picks up everything in ./lib/.

    BTW - If I set it to OtherUtil, only OtherUtil gets installed, so it does seem to affect what get's installed.

    Thanks! ~Jon

      Interesting. That isn't documented well in MakeMaker. Anyway, glad to hear you found a solution that works.
