syphilis has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Hi,

I can clone the github repo ok:
git clone git@github.com:ingydotnet/inline-c-pm inline-c-pm
However, AFAICT, there's no Makefile.PL included - except for a couple in eg/modules that bear no relation to the building of Inline::C itself.
In the absence of that file, what is the recommended course of action to be taken in order to build Inline::C from github source ?
(And where is this procedure documented ?)

Cheers,
Rob

      Thanks 1nickt.

      I tried cpanm -n Zilla::Dist but it bailed out after about 30 minutes because of failing dependencies.
      At least I've now got another 175 modules installed .... none of which I'll ever use.

      It's not a big deal. If it was straightforward enough I would have given the github distro a run.
      It's apparently not, so I won't.

      Cheers,
      Rob
