in thread ExtUtils::MakeMaker and dot files

The MANIFEST did not call for the files in the .AppleDouble folder, but they are still copied to blib. This is still a problem.

Well, .AppleDouble/Foo.pm sure did not get copied to blib (I tested)

But lib/.AppleDouble/Foop.pm did -- you should have been more specific!

But I'd say its still not a problem because the purpose of MANIFEST.SKIP is to control which files get put into a tarball when you use make dist -- and if you do use  make dist then the resulting tarball will be free of .AppleDouble folders

Otherwise you'd have to use the icky PM_FILTER option, or the laborious PM option

PM => { 'Foo.pm' => '$(INST_LIBDIR)/Foo.pm', 'lib/Foop.pm' => '$(INST_LIBDIR)/Foop.pm', },

    Sigh. But we aren't making tar balls for distribution in this case. We are moving library-type code to a common location on a server to run in a dev environment. When I run my make mantra, the resulting Makefile itself has TO_INST_PM = lib/Project/.AppleDouble/Foo.pm in it. That is 100% my problem and it doesn't relate in any way to MANIFEST. I keep saying that MANIFEST isn't my problem, and yet it keeps coming up. What words am I not saying to make this clear?

    My solution has to reside in keeping Makefile.PL from recursing into .AppleDouble directories inside of lib. Or I need a completely different tool or approach. MANIFEST would only be relevant if I could have make install read the MANIFEST when moving to the perl lib area.

    BTW, I tried PM_FILTER => "grep -v \'.AppleDouble\'",, but that didn't seem to do anything--I may just not quite gotten the sytax or quoting quite right?

    I also looked into hacking out the .AppleDouble lines from the Makefile itself, but since I don't quite know what's going inside there, maybe that's a bad idea.

      The AppleDouble folders exist because of the afp connection that I am making to access the files. I can side step this (we hope) by using SFTP instead. This wont write AppleDouble any more and I should be all set.

      BTW, I tried PM_FILTER ...

      But have you read the the docs for PM_FILTER?
