NAME

       catalyst - Bootstrap a Catalyst application

SYNOPSIS

       catalyst.pl [options] application-name

       'catalyst.pl' creates a skeleton for a new application, and allows you to upgrade the
       skeleton of your old application.

        Options:
          -force      don't create a .new file where a file to be created exists
          -help       display this help and exit
          -makefile   only update Makefile.PL
          -scripts    only update helper scripts

        application-name must be a valid Perl module name and can include "::",
        which will be converted to '-' in the project name.

        Examples:
           catalyst.pl My::App
           catalyst.pl MyApp

        To upgrade your app to a new version of Catalyst:
           catalyst.pl -force -scripts MyApp

DESCRIPTION

       The "catalyst.pl" script bootstraps a Catalyst application, creating a directory structure
       populated with skeleton files.

       The application name must be a valid Perl module name.  The name of the directory created
       is formed from the application name supplied, with double colons replaced with hyphens
       (so, for example, the directory for "My::App" is "My-App").

       Using the example application name "My::App", the application directory will contain the
       following items:

       README
           a skeleton README file, which you are encouraged to expand on

       Changes
           a changes file with an initial entry for the creation of the application

       Makefile.PL
           Makefile.PL uses the "Module::Install" system for packaging and distribution of the
           application.

       lib contains the application module ("My/App.pm") and subdirectories for model, view, and
           controller components ("My/App/M", "My/App/V", and "My/App/C").

       root
           root directory for your web document content.  This is left empty.

       script
           a directory containing helper scripts:

           "myapp_create.pl"
               helper script to generate new component modules

           "myapp_server.pl"
               runs the generated application within a Catalyst test server, which can be used
               for testing without resorting to a full-blown web server configuration.

           "myapp_cgi.pl"
               runs the generated application as a CGI script

           "myapp_fastcgi.pl"
               runs the generated application as a FastCGI script

           "myapp_test.pl"
               runs an action of the generated application from the command line.

       t   test directory

       The application module generated by the "catalyst.pl" script is functional, although it
       reacts to all requests by outputting a friendly welcome screen.

NOTE

       Neither "catalyst.pl" nor the generated helper script will overwrite existing files.  In
       fact the scripts will generate new versions of any existing files, adding the extension
       ".new" to the filename.  The ".new" file is not created if would be identical to the
       existing file.

       This means you can re-run the scripts for example to see if newer versions of Catalyst or
       its plugins generate different code, or to see how you may have changed the generated code
       (although you do of course have all your code in a version control system anyway, don't
       you ...).
