       DhMakePerl::Command::Packaging - common routines for 'make' and 'refresh' dh-make-perl


           Constructs a file name relative to the main source directory, "main_dir"

           Constructs a file name relative to the debian/ sub-directory of the main source

       explained_dependency $reason, $dependencies, @dependencies
           Adds the list of dependencies to $dependencies and shows $reason if in verbose mode.

           Used to both bump a dependency and tell the user why.

           $dependencies is an instance of Debian::Dependencies class, and @dependencies is a
           list of Debian::Dependency instances or strings.

           The message printed looks like "$reason needs @dependencies".

           Configure CPAN module. It is safe to call this method more than once, it will do
           nothing if CPAN is already configured.

           Just a wrapper around $self->control->discover_dependencies which provides the right
           parameters to it.

           Returns a list of missing modules.

           Determines whether a certain version of debhelper(1) or quilt(1) is needed by the
           build process.

           The following special cases are detected:

               If Module::AutoInstall is discovered in "" in inc, debhelper dependency is raised
               to 7.2.13.

               if Module::Build::Tiny is present in the build-dependencies, debhelper dependency
               is raised to 9.20130630.

           dh --with=quilt
               "dh --with=quilt" needs debhelper 7.0.8 and quilt 0.46-7.

           dh --with=bash-completion
               "dh --with=bash-completion" needs debhelper 7.0.8 and bash-completion 1:1.0-3.

           dh --with=perl_dbi
               "dh --with=perl_dbi" needs debhelper 7.0.8 and libdbi-perl 1.612.

           dh --buildsystem=buildsystem
               "dh --buildsystem=buildsystem" needs debhelper 7.3.7.

               If /usr/share/quilt/quilt.make is included in debian/rules, a build-dependency on
               "quilt" is added.

           debhelper override targets
               Targets named "override_dh_..." are supported by debhelper since 7.0.50

           Makefile.PL created by Module::Build::Compat
               Building such packages requires debhelper 7.0.17 (see
               <>) =back

               The proper build-dependency in this case is


               The on perl without a version is set as Lenny has already 5.10 which includes
               first Module::Build.

           Checks if Makefile.PL is a compatibility wrapper around Build.PL provided by

           Creates a backup copy of the specified file by adding ".bak" to its name. If the
           backup already exists, it is overwritten.

           Does nothing unless the "backups" option is set.

           Runs its argument through Text::Balanced's "extract_quotelike" method and returns the
           extracted content with quotes removed. Dies if "extract_quotelike" can't find quoted
