in reply to seeking Makefile.PL wisdom -- how to install non-PM file?

I usually do something like that:

postamble(<<"END_MAKEFILE"); config :: \t\$(NOECHO) \$(MOD_INSTALL) \\ \t\t\"$dir\" \$(INST_AUTODIR) END_MAKEFILE

where $dir is a directory with those non-pm files I'd like to install.

Cheers, Flo

    But is it safe to do so?
    Are these lines are inter-make-compatible? (at least nmake and make and dmake?)

    I also found a person with the same problem --

    For the record, currently I added '.pm' fake extension so file installed as needed
    but I am uncomfortable with this solution.

    Thanks once again!

      It works at least with GNU make and nmake. I haven't tried other make implementations so far and didn't even know that dmake existed.

      Cheers, Flo
