The CPAN clients (cpan/cpanp/cpanm) take the following steps:

  • Download distribution
  • Extract distribution
  • Does a META.yml or META.json file exist? Okay, parse and look for configure_requires, resolve all the requirements listed there
  • Execute Makefile.PL or Build.PL
  • If there is a MYMETA.yml or MYMETA.json, parse and look for build and runtime requirements, resolve these
  • No, MYMETA files, okay, if there is a Makefile parse that to resolve requirements
  • Oh, its a Module::Build based dist, try running 'Build prereq_data' action, if that fails, poke around in _build/ directory to find the requirements
  • Resolve requirements
  • Execute 'make' for EUMM or './Build' for M::B
  • Execute 'make test' for EUMM or './Build test' for M::B
  • Execute 'make install' for EUMM or './Build install' for M::B

  • In reply to Re^3: module needs another module for build by bingos
    in thread module needs another module for build by dk

    Title:
    Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
    and:  <code> code here </code>
    to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
    a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
  • You may need to use entities for some characters, as follows. (Exception: Within code tags, you can put the characters literally.)
            For:     Use:
    & &amp;
    < &lt;
    > &gt;
