Module::Install::Base(3) User Contributed Perl Documentation Module::Install::Base(3)
 

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

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

This module provide essential methods for all Module::Install extensions, in particular the common constructor "new" and method dispatcher "AUTOLOAD".

new(%args)
Constructor -- need to preserve at least _top
AUTOLOAD
The main dispatcher - copy extensions if missing
_top()
Returns the top-level Module::Install object.
admin()
Returns the "_top" object's associated Module::Install::Admin 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.
