NAME

Module::Install::Base - Base class for Module::Install extensions

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS

In a <B>Module::InstallB> extension:



    use Module::Install::Base ();
    @ISA = qw(Module::Install::Base);



DESCRIPTION

This module provide essential methods for all <B>Module::InstallB> extensions, in particular the common constructor new and method dispatcher AUTOLOAD.

METHODS

new(%args) Constructor — need to preserve at least _top
AUTOLOAD The main dispatcher - copy extensions if missing
_top() Returns the top-level <B>Module::InstallB> object.
admin() Returns the _top object’s associated <B>Module::Install::AdminB> object on the first run (i.e. when there was no inc/ when the program started); on subsequent (user-side) runs, returns a fake admin object with an empty AUTOLOAD method that does nothing at all.
is_admin() Tells whether this is the first run of the installer (on author’s side). That is when there was no inc/ at program start. True if that’s the case. False, otherwise.
