in reply to how to stop module::build from building html docs

I haven't tested this, but I think this is a feature that's configured when you *build* perl.

From the Module::Build documentation:

html
[version 0.26]

This will generate HTML documentation for any binary or library files under blib/ that contain POD. The HTML documentation will only be installed if the install paths can be determined from values in "Config.pm". You can also supply or override install paths on the command line by specifying "install_path" values for the "binhtml" and/or "libhtml" installation targets.

I don't have those paths in my Config.pm, and Module::Build doesn't generate html docs. If you want to turn it off forever, editing Config.pm is probably the quickest and surest way.

Otherwise, have a look at the installdirs and install_paths command line options. Something like

perl Build.PL --install_path binhtml= --install_path libhtml=
might just suppress generating html.

    Sadly perl Build.PL --install_path binhtml= --install_path libhtml=
    didn't work. Thanks

    I've run into this problem myself

    Updated: 2013-01-30 Eastern Standard Time
    Reason: reply by Anonymous monk

    I have no acceptable* solution for preventing Module::Build from building Html from POD in the distribution. I have found, however, a way to prevent it from installing Html files when I issue the ./Build install command.

    Reported based on installed Module::Build v0.38

    Update:

    I'll show the results of trying some other things. Note that there is a null solution here. These flags still do not work.

    Building Module-Runtime

    Notice the output line:
    Installing /usr/local/html/site/lib/Module/Runtime.html


    * Editing Config.pm is considerably unacceptable where a package manager is managing the perl installation (by upgrading with files created by a package-creation worker somewhere far, far away). As is the case for the vast majority of users of Perl ( /machines where perl is installed/ ) now.

      See How to stop Module::Build from generating html?
