|next||MakeMaker is DOOMED!||Slide #21|
MakeMaker is being eased out to pasture.
Module::Build is being eased in.
CPANPLUS now understands Module::Build.
CPAN.pm is lagging a bit behind.
There's a patch floating around somewhere.
You should be using CPANPLUS anyway.
Module::Build::Compat can generate a wrapper Makefile around Module::Build
So you have both a Makefile.PL and a Build.PL
'make test' just calls './Build test' for example
Doesn't do everything MakeMaker can (thank god) but its enough
Somebody even wrote a Makefile.PL -> Build.PL converter
Unfortunately I don't remember who that was.
