in thread Installing a script

INSTALLSCRIPT says where to install them (which should be set automatically by PREFIX and the newer & better INSTALL_BASE), not what to install.

PL_FILES is completely unrelated.

    not what to install.

    Astroboy answered the first part of the question (EXE_FILES) himself. INSTALLSCRIPT/prompt answers the second part.

    PL_FILES is completely unrelated.

    PL_FILES is simply important; It needs to be managed. Many (even the initiated) overlook that it will install your / / into the module tree by default.

    Sometimes you need to read the question closely.

    Thank you

      PL_FILES is a means of specifying scripts that are executed during the installation process. For example, I used it to identify a script that compiles WSDL files into SOAP::Lite classes during installation. It has nothing to do with causing scripts to be installed or with preventing scripts from being installed. It has nothing to do with installing scripts at all.
        I can admit when I am wrong. Right after the PL_FILES option is the PM options which does control that.
