in thread Best way to implement Inline::C/Pure Perl function in a module?

Of all the people to who could have answered :)

I applied this method to my Makefile.PL as well. I was hoping to get the compile out of the way immediately, but I don't think Module::Install likes it. I'm not sure if I should keep playing around with it or just go back to ExtUtils...

make: *** No rule to make target `Damerau.inl', needed by `pure_all'. Stop.

use inc::Module::Install; name 'Some-Module'; all_from 'lib/SomeModule.pm'; readme_from 'lib/SomeModule.pm', 1; auto_manifest; auto_set_repository; auto_license; test_requires 'Test::More'; recommends 'Inline::C'; eval { require Inline; Inline->import( C => Config => BUILD_NOISY => 1 ); }; if($@) { WriteAll(); } else { WriteAll( inline => 1 ); }

    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
