Auto shebang hacking

in reply to Re: question about perl
in thread How do I change the shebang line for all perl scripts in a directory

I had some thoughts about this very subject posted to a different forum.

We spend a lot of effort with modules, verifying that all files are present, they work, etc. before putting them live.

What about their poor relations, the scripts? A script writer could implement tests in an equivalent of make test. The install step could copy to cgi-bin or wherever the script needs to go, changing the shebang line in the process, having worked out where perl lives.

Could Extutils::MakeMaker be used to do this, or is this too hard-coded for modules and h2xs?

    Check the only entry in my CPAN directory for my script that does shell-to-Perl translation. It shows how to hack the shebang line during installation, and also shows tests for the script.
