CPAN shell - passing params for module installationby skazat (Chaplain)
|on Jan 18, 2007 at 00:13 UTC||Need Help??|
skazat has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I'm trying to build the pure perl version of version.pm in the cpan shell.
According to the README, it says you can do this by:
This release includes an optional pure Perl implementation (in case you don't have a C-compiler or if some reason you want your code to be much slower). You can test it by calling the build script as $ perl Build.PL --perl_only and it will install the Perl only version. OR To install with ExtUtils::MakeMaker: $ perl Makefile.PL $ make $ make test # make install and correspondingly $ perl Makefile.PL --perl_only will install the Perl only version.
Is there a way to send this paramater to whatever utility is used to build the module, while in the CPAN shell?
(which, obviously, doesn't work) I'm guessing this may have to do with tweaking the conf makepl_arg stuff, which wouldn't be the worst thing to have to do.
