Module::Build::Platform::MacOS

NAME

Module::Build::Platform::MacOS - Builder class for MacOS platforms

DESCRIPTION

The sole purpose of this module is to inherit from Module::Build::Base and override a few methods. Please see Module::Build for the docs.

Overridden Methods

  • new()

    MacPerl doesn't define $Config{sitelib} or $Config{sitearch} for some reason, but $Config{installsitelib} and $Config{installsitearch} are there. So we copy the install variables to the other location

  • make_executable()

    On MacOS we set the file type and creator to MacPerl so it will run with a double-click.

  • dispatch()

    Because there's no easy way to say "./Build test" on MacOS, if dispatch is called with no arguments and no @ARGV a dialog box will pop up asking what action to take and any extra arguments.

    Default action is "test".

  • ACTION_realclean()

    Need to unlock the Build program before deleting.
