Subject ModPerl::MM or ExtUtils::MakeMaker or what?
Date Thu, 03 Apr 2008 08:19:31 GMT
Hi,

I am a bit confused about what MakeMaker is best to use with mp2 modules. 
There is the good old ExtUtils::MakeMaker that is mentioned in 
http://perl.apache.org/docs/general/testing/testing.html. How I got there I 
don't remember but I have used in all my modules ModPerl::MM. Is that right? 
Or should I rather port them to use the former?

I am asking because I have had FAIL reports from CPAN testers that don't 
install ModPerl::MM. The way around these reports is using

BEGIN {
  eval {
    require ModPerl::MM;
    require Apache::TestMM;
  };
  if( $@ ) {
    warn $@;
    exit 0;
  }
  Apache::TestMM->import( qw(test clean) );
}

instead of

use ModPerl::MM ();
use Apache::TestMM qw(test clean);

This way no Makefile is written and the automatic test suite is happy.

Torsten
