You make it sound as if Module::Build is somehow coded to _not_ allow dry runs. I don't think this was a design decision Ken made, it's simply not in the code base at present.

There is a "fakeinstall" build target you can use to get a partial dry run (just of the parts done by ExtUtils::Install, aka module installation). I'm sure patches are welcome to expand dry-run functionality ;)

[shmem]: well finally.
[stevieb]: nice! I just finished a GPS "take me home" device last week, and did a bunch of software updates to it yesterday. I also created a pseudo chip with an Arduino to simulate an IC, where it responds to register read/writes over the I2C bus...
[stevieb]: ...from an I2C master. It's ugly and there are many changes I'm going to make, but I had not done anything like it before. It's designed for my RPi:: automated test platform; a system that does CI on *all* my RPi modules.
[shmem]: pseudo chip?
[stevieb]: well, what happens is the Arduino 'listens' for requests r/w, and does the appropriate thing when it's interrupted based on the 'register' address sent in. It's ugly as it was my first attempt, but I've got great new ideas I'm just sitting.
