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/ 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?
