NAME

       ExtUtils::Command::MM - Commands for the MM's to use in Makefiles

SYNOPSIS

         perl "-MExtUtils::Command::MM" -e "function" "--" arguments...

DESCRIPTION

       FOR INTERNAL USE ONLY!  The interface is not stable.

       ExtUtils::Command::MM encapsulates code which would otherwise have to be done with large
       "one" liners.

       Any $(FOO) used in the examples are make variables, not Perl.

       test_harness
             test_harness($verbose, @test_libs);

           Runs the tests on @ARGV via Test::Harness passing through the $verbose flag.  Any
           @test_libs will be unshifted onto the test's @INC.

           @test_libs are run in alphabetical order.

       pod2man
             pod2man( '--option=value',
                      $podfile1 => $manpage1,
                      $podfile2 => $manpage2,
                      ...
                    );

             # or args on @ARGV

           pod2man() is a function performing most of the duties of the pod2man program.  Its
           arguments are exactly the same as pod2man as of 5.8.0 with the addition of:

               --perm_rw   octal permission to set the resulting manpage to

           And the removal of:

               --verbose/-v
               --help/-h

           If no arguments are given to pod2man it will read from @ARGV.

           If Pod::Man is unavailable, this function will warn and return undef.

       warn_if_old_packlist
             perl "-MExtUtils::Command::MM" -e warn_if_old_packlist <somefile>

           Displays a warning that an old packlist file was found.  Reads the filename from
           @ARGV.

       perllocal_install
               perl "-MExtUtils::Command::MM" -e perllocal_install
                   <type> <module name> <key> <value> ...

               # VMS only, key|value pairs come on STDIN
               perl "-MExtUtils::Command::MM" -e perllocal_install
                   <type> <module name> < <key>|<value> ...

           Prints a fragment of POD suitable for appending to perllocal.pod.  Arguments are read
           from @ARGV.

           'type' is the type of what you're installing.  Usually 'Module'.

           'module name' is simply the name of your module.  (Foo::Bar)

           Key/value pairs are extra information about the module.  Fields include:

               installed into      which directory your module was out into
               LINKTYPE            dynamic or static linking
               VERSION             module version number
               EXE_FILES           any executables installed in a space separated
                                   list

       uninstall
               perl "-MExtUtils::Command::MM" -e uninstall <packlist>

           A wrapper around ExtUtils::Install::uninstall().  Warns that uninstallation is
           deprecated and doesn't actually perform the uninstallation.

       test_s
              perl "-MExtUtils::Command::MM" -e test_s <file>

           Tests if a file exists and is not empty (size > 0).  Exits with 0 if it does, 1 if it
           does not.

       cp_nonempty
             perl "-MExtUtils::Command::MM" -e cp_nonempty <srcfile> <dstfile> <perm>

           Tests if the source file exists and is not empty (size > 0). If it is not empty it
           copies it to the given destination with the given permissions.
