in reply to Add bash file to a dist package

With Module::Build, add something like this to your Build.PL:
my $builder = Module::Build->new( ... sh_files => { 'path/in/dist/to/test.sh' => 'sh/test666.sh'}, install_path => { sh => '/etc/profile.d' }, ... } $builder->add_build_element('sh'); $builder->create_build_script();
Read the Module::Build::Cookbook for details.

    Thanks, I follow your hints and it seems to work.

    Just one think is not clear to me again.

    I used a Build.PL file like this:

    use strict; use warnings; use Module::Build; my $builder = Module::Build->new( module_name => 'Jump', license => 'perl', dist_author => q{Enzo Arlati <enzo.arlati@libero.it>}, dist_version_from => 'lib/Jump.pm', build_requires => { 'Test::More' => 0, }, sh_files => { 'sh/jump.sh' => 'sh/jump.sh' }, add_to_cleanup => [ 'Jump-*' ], create_makefile_pl => 'traditional', ); $builder->install_path( 'sh' => '/etc/profile.d/' ); $builder->add_build_element( 'sh' ); $builder->create_build_script();
    In this file I have to add the statement:
    sh_files => { 'sh/jump.sh' => 'sh/jump.sh' },
    also if the source and destination of the sh files are the same.

    If I comment this line the jump.sh file are not processed.

    Is this correct and there are a more polite way to tell the program to include the file *.sh ?

    Regards, Enzo

      According Module::Build::Cookbook, if you specify
      $builder->add_build_element( 'sh' );
      this will find all *.sh files in the lib directory of your distribution. In your case, the bash script is in a non-standard directory, so you have to tell Module::Build where it is:
      sh_files => { 'sh/jump.sh' => 'sh/jump.sh' },
      And here the files are not the same. The destination is 'blib/sh/jump.sh'.
