Manual Reference Pages - MODULE::INSTALL::SHARE (3)
Module::Install::Share - Install non-code files for use during run-time
# Put everything inside ./share/ into the distribution auto path
# Same thing as above using the default directory name
As well as Perl modules and Perl binary applications, some distributions
need to install read-only data files to a location on the file system
for use at run-time.
XML Schemas, YAML data files, and SQLite databases are examples of
the sort of things distributions might typically need to have available
Module::Install::Share is a Module::Install extension that provides
commands to allow these files to be installed to the applicable location
To locate the files after installation so they can be used inside your
module, see this extensions companion module File::ShareDir.
Currently install_share installs not only the files you want, but
if called by the author will also copy .svn and other source-control
directories, and other junk.
Enhance this to copy only files under share that are in the
MANIFEST, or possibly those not in MANIFEST.SKIP.
