( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??
I applied this method to my Makefile.PL as well

I think that all you can really do at the Makefile.PL stage is to eval{require Inline::C}; and use the result of that to determine whether Inline is available.
Then you need to have 2 versions of SomeModule.pm - one rendition that caters for the availability of Inline, and one that caters for the absence of Inline support.

One other feature of the approach I initially outlined is that Inline::C can be installed *after* SomeModule.pm has been installed, and the Inline::C version of your ed() function is then immediately available - without any need to build/install SomeModule.pm all over again.
Of course, it does mean that the final compilation of the C code won't take place until the first time that SomeModule.pm has been loaded, *after* make install has been run.

Other options include doing away with the Inline dependency completely and just re-structuring your module as a normal type of XS distro. (I use InlineX::C2XS for that.)

I've no experience with inc/Module/Install ... except for some bad experiences where it has been thrust upon me by some module that I happen to be wanting to install.

Cheers,
Rob
