( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

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.

      Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
