Re^2: Clean smoke-test install for Inline based modules using Inline::MakeMaker

in thread Clean smoke-test install for Inline based modules using Inline::MakeMaker

Hmm, on further inspection, it's not quite as simple as that, and I'm still confused. When I execute:

perl Makefile.PL make make test make dist

I get no such warning at any stage in the process. How is it that the target in some cases is coming up with that warning?

In fact, when I examine the META.* files I see that the build requirement is getting listed therein when I make dist. So I'm still bewildered.

I'm learning here too, and the whole concept of basing a module on Inline seems to be a road less traveled. In fact there are tools to automate the process of converting an Inline extension to plain old XS for the purposes of distribution. So this isn't really a critical adventure. But if we're not too far away from making Inline based modules distributable I'd like to see it through.

ExtUtils::MakeMaker is always somewhat of a quagmire. I suspect even more-so when we're dealing with Inline::MakeMaker. But it seems like the goal isn't that far away.

If I haven't said so before, thanks for your reply both here and to the many other threads where I've learned something from your answers.

    I think it indicates that I have a down-level version of MakeMaker installed that doesn't have that keyword. The problem is, I cannot tell from teh error message whether I should upgrade ExtUtils::MakeMaker or Inline::MakeMaker?

    I guess I could try both one at a time to see. I'll get back to you after I've eaten.

    BUILD_REQUIRES was added in c8d5ea031 (June 17, 2009). It looks like this may be first introduced into a tagged release code at 6.55_03 (I am not certain on this, other than the mention in Changes -- haven't taken the time to track it down further than that). Perhaps the version on the testers machine is older.

    Grrr. I hate EU::MM. I have more trouble with that module than all the other modules I've used put together!

    Every other module I've ever 'gunzip & tar -xvf'd, unpacks all it contents into a subdirectory it creates with the same name as the package. The latest version of EU::MM just dumped it's entire contents into the current directory. Which means an hours work trying to clean up after it. What a crock!

    I'll get back to you to tomorrow.

        I've seen it too, and AFAIK, its probably the dev tarball from http://makemaker.org

        though the latest version is ExtUtils-MakeMaker-6.63_02/

        Er, yes it does. On my machine.

        Full console log:

        And so do all of the last 6 versions.
