NAME

       Apache::TestMM - Provide MakeMaker Wrapper Methods

SYNOPSIS

         require Apache::TestMM;

         # import MY::test and MY::clean overrides for MM
         Apache::TestMM->import(qw(test clean));

         # parse command line args
         Apache::TestMM::filter_args();

         # autogenerate the script
         Apache::TestMM::generate_script('t/TEST');

DESCRIPTION

       "Apache::TestMM" provides wrappers for the "ExtUtils::MakeMaker" craft, making it easier
       to extend the autogenerated Makefile with "Apache::Test".

FUNCTIONS

   "import"
         use Apache::TestMM qw(test clean);

       or:

         Apache::TestMM->import(qw(test clean));

       Imports "MY::" overrides for the default "ExtUtils::MakeMaker" test and clean targets, as
       if you have defined:

         sub MY::test {...}
         sub MY::clean {...}

       in Makefile.PL. "Apache::TestMM" does this for you so that these Makefile targets will run
       the Apache server and the tests for it, and clean up after its mess.

   "filter_args"
         push @ARGV, '-apxs', $apxs_path;
         Apache::TestMM::filter_args();
         WriteMakefile(...);

       When "WriteMakefile()" is called it parses @ARGV, hoping to find special options like
       "PREFIX=/home/stas/perl". "Apache::Test" accepts a lot of configuration options of its
       own. When "Apache::TestMM::filter_args()" is called, it removes any
       "Apache::Test"-specific options from @ARGV and stores them internally, so when
       "WriteMakefile()" is called they aren't in @ARGV and thus won't be processed by
       "WriteMakefile()".

       The options can be set when Makefile.PL is called:

         % perl Makefile.PL -apxs /path/to/apxs

       Or you can push them manually to @ARGV from the code:

         push @ARGV, '-apxs', $apxs_path;

       When:

         Apache::TestMM::generate_script('t/TEST');

       is called, "Apache::Test"-specific options extracted by "Apache::TestMM::filter_args()"
       are written to the autogenerated file. In our example, the autogenerated t/TEST will
       include:

         %Apache::TestConfig::Argv = qw(apxs /path/to/apxs);

       which is going to be used by the "Apache::Test" runtime.

       The other frequently used options are: "-httpd", telling where to find the httpd (usually
       when the "-apxs" option is not used), "-libmodperl" to use a specific mod_perl shared
       object (if your mod_perl is built as DSO), "-maxclients" to change the default number of
       the configured "MaxClients" directive, "-port" to start the server on a specific port,
       etc. To get the complete list of available configuration options and their purpose and
       syntax, run:

         % perl -MApache::TestConfig -le 'Apache::TestConfig::usage()'

       You may wish to document some of these in your application's README file, especially the
       "-apxs" and "-httpd" options.

   "generate_script"
         Apache::TestMM::generate_script('t/TEST');

       "generate_script()" accepts the name of the script to generate and will look for a
       template with the same name and suffix .PL. So in our example it'll look for t/TEST.PL.
       The autogenerated script t/TEST will include the contents of t/TEST.PL, and special
       directives, including any configuration options passed via "filter_args()" called from
       Makefile.PL, special fixup code, etc.
