This is a CPAN distribution of the venerable MakeMaker module.  It has been
backported to work with Perl 5.6.0 and up.

Please note that while this module works on Perl 5.6, it is no longer
being routinely tested on 5.6. However, patches to repair any breakage
on 5.6 are still being accepted.

See INSTALL for installation instructions.  Run "perldoc
ExtUtils::MakeMaker" (while in this source directory before
installation) for more documentation.

See or
for a full list of open problems.

Please report your bugs via or or
by mailing to
RT or GitHub are preferred.
