NAME

       Module::Build::ConfigData - Configuration for Module::Build

SYNOPSIS

         use Module::Build::ConfigData;
         $value = Module::Build::ConfigData->config('foo');
         $value = Module::Build::ConfigData->feature('bar');

         @names = Module::Build::ConfigData->config_names;
         @names = Module::Build::ConfigData->feature_names;

         Module::Build::ConfigData->set_config(foo => $new_value);
         Module::Build::ConfigData->set_feature(bar => $new_value);
         Module::Build::ConfigData->write;  # Save changes

DESCRIPTION

       This module holds the configuration data for the "Module::Build" module.  It also provides
       a programmatic interface for getting or setting that configuration data.  Note that in
       order to actually make changes, you'll have to have write access to the
       "Module::Build::ConfigData" module, and you should attempt to understand the repercussions
       of your actions.

METHODS

       config($name)
           Given a string argument, returns the value of the configuration item by that name, or
           "undef" if no such item exists.

       feature($name)
           Given a string argument, returns the value of the feature by that name, or "undef" if
           no such feature exists.

       set_config($name, $value)
           Sets the configuration item with the given name to the given value.  The value may be
           any Perl scalar that will serialize correctly using "Data::Dumper".  This includes
           references, objects (usually), and complex data structures.  It probably does not
           include transient things like filehandles or sockets.

       set_feature($name, $value)
           Sets the feature with the given name to the given boolean value.  The value will be
           converted to 0 or 1 automatically.

       config_names()
           Returns a list of all the names of config items currently defined in
           "Module::Build::ConfigData", or in scalar context the number of items.

       feature_names()
           Returns a list of all the names of features currently defined in
           "Module::Build::ConfigData", or in scalar context the number of features.

       auto_feature_names()
           Returns a list of all the names of features whose availability is dynamically
           determined, or in scalar context the number of such features.  Does not include such
           features that have later been set to a fixed value.

       write()
           Commits any changes from "set_config()" and "set_feature()" to disk.  Requires write
           access to the "Module::Build::ConfigData" module.
