NAME

inc::Module::Install - Module::Install configuration system

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS



  use inc::Module::Install;



DESCRIPTION

This module first checks whether the inc/.author directory exists, and removes the whole inc/ directory if it does, so the module author always get a fresh inc every time they run Makefile.PL. Next, it unshifts inc into @INC, then loads <B>Module::InstallB> from there.

Below is an explanation of the reason for using a loader module:

The original implementation of <B>CPAN::MakeMakerB> introduces subtle problems for distributions ending with CPAN (e.g. <B>CPAN.pmB>, <B>WAIT::Format::CPANB>), because its placement in ./CPAN/ duplicates the real libraries that will get installed; also, the directory name ./CPAN/ may confuse users.

On the other hand, putting included, for-build-time-only libraries in ./inc/ is a normal practice, and there is little chance that a CPAN distribution will be called Something::inc, so it’s much safer to use.

Also, it allows for other helper modules like <B>Module::AutoInstallB> to reside also in inc/, and to make use of them.
