in thread MakeMaker tailoring

In this case, would something like the following work?
package main; use strict; use warnings; use ExtUtils::MakeMaker qw( WriteMakefile ); my $parms = { NAME => 'Module::Name', }; WriteMakefile( %$parms ); package MY; sub postamble { return <<'MAKE_FRAG'; new_target: $(PERL) -e "print qq{Hello from new_target\n}" MAKE_FRAG } sub top_targets { my $inherited = shift->SUPER::top_targets(@_); $inherited =~ s/(\npure_all\s+::.+)/$1 new_target/; return $inherited; } 1;
This adds a new new_target target, which is then carried out at the nmake stage, without having to specify nmake new_target explicitly.

    Excellent! That works! I didn't know about top_target, many thanks.
