NAME

       wml::mod::MakeMaker - A Makefile generator

SYNOPSIS

        #!wml -o Makefile
        #use wml::mod::MakeMaker

        <write-makefile [attributes]>

DESCRIPTION

       This include file provides an easy way to write a Makefile to distribute your own WML
       modules. It is inspired by the "ExtUtils::MakeMaker" Perl module.

   Default targets
       make all
           This is the default target. It will build all include files and their documentation.

       make install
           Install include files and documentation in the locations given by ``wml -V2''.

       make clean
           Remove files generated by make.

       make distclean
           Like make clean, plus remove the Makefile too.

       make dist
           Build a distribution. Should only be used by the module maintainer.  If there is a
           MANIFEST file, then the list of files to include is taken from this file. Otherwise
           the tarball contains all source files, plus MakeMaker.wml, Makefile.wml, shtool and
           README if these files exist.

   Overriding default targets
       To build the Makefile, all targets are put in separate buffers during pass 3, and those
       buffers are diverted by pass 5. You can override this defaukt target by redefining buffer
       contents.  Buffer names are explicit:

           MK_ALL MK_INSTALL MK_CLEAN MK_DISTCLEAN MK_CONFIG MK_RELEASE

   Defining new targets
       The MK_USER is empty and devoted to this task.

ATTRIBUTES

       The first three attributes are mandatory.

       package
           The name of the package

       version
           Its version number

       modules
           List of modules to build and install. This is a space separated list of filenames.
           Modules should reside in a sub-directory to be compliant with actual file hierarchy.
           For instance, the declaration

                modules="math/log.tmpl math/exp.tmpl"

           tells that after compilation, there are two modules which are "math/log.tmpl" and
           "math/exp.tmpl". This modules will be installed to "LibDir/include/math/log.tmpl" and
           "LibDir/include/math/exp.tmpl".

           These modules will then be called in a WML file by

               #use tmpl::math::log
               #use tmpl::math::exp

           Source files for these modules are obtained by replacing the suffix by .src.

       src-ext
           Defines an alternate suffix for the source files.

       man-ext
           Section number of the manual in which man files are put. Default is 3.

       extradistfiles
           Space separated list of files to include in a distribution. By default, all source
           files plus MakeMaker.wml, Makefile.wml,  README and shtool are included in a
           distribution.

EXAMPLE

        <write-makefile
           package="log"
           version="3.14"
           modules="math/log.tmpl"
           source-ext="exp"
        >

       This will build the tmpl::math::log include module from the math/log.exp source file. This
       source file will also produce the tmpl::math::log(3) manpage.

NOTES

       Please do _not_ use a ".wml" suffix for your modules, they should be reserved for official
       WML modules shipped with WML. You may instead put your initials or anything else.
