So my question is pretty simple.
I noticed most modules use ExtUtils::MakeMaker and their Makefile.PL looks like this:
WriteMakefile( ATTRIBUTE => VALUE [, ...] );
But some distributions, like Net::GitHub look very different:Link to the Makefile.pl.
This seems to use inc::Module::Install.
- Q: Which method is is preferred?
- Additionally I noticed Net::GitHub has a repository attribute with a link to the github repo, I didn't know about this attrib, and it seems pretty useful since both search.cpan.org and metacpan.org will show this on the release info.
Q: Where can I find a list of attributes needed/used by various cpan clients?
