NAME
    Module::Install::RTx - RT extension installer

SYNOPSIS
    In the Makefile.PL of the "RT-Extension-Foo" module:

        use inc::Module::Install;
        RTx 'RT-Extension-Foo';
        WriteAll();

DESCRIPTION
    This Module::Install extension implements one function, "RTx", that
    takes the extension name as the only argument.

    It arranges for certain subdirectories to install into the installed RT
    location, but does not affect the usual "lib" and "t" directories.

    The directory mapping table is as below:

        ./bin   => $RT::LocalPath/bin
        ./etc   => $RT::LocalPath/etc/$NAME
        ./html  => $RT::MasonComponentRoot
        ./po    => $RT::LocalLexiconPath/$NAME
        ./sbin  => $RT::LocalPath/sbin
        ./var   => $RT::VarPath/$NAME

    Under the default RT3 layout in /opt and with the extension name "Foo",
    it becomes:

        ./bin   => /opt/rt3/local/bin
        ./etc   => /opt/rt3/local/etc/Foo
        ./html  => /opt/rt3/share/html
        ./po    => /opt/rt3/local/po/Foo
        ./sbin  => /opt/rt3/local/sbin
        ./var   => /opt/rt3/var/Foo

    By default, all these subdirectories will be installed with "make
    install". you can override this by setting the "WITH_SUBDIRS"
    environment variable to a comma-delimited subdirectory list, such as
    "html,sbin".

    Alternatively, you can also specify the list as a command-line option to
    "Makefile.PL", like this:

        perl Makefile.PL WITH_SUBDIRS=sbin

CAVEATS
    * Use full name when call RTx method in Makefile.PL, some magic has been
    implemented in this installer to support RTx('Foo') for 'RTx-Foo'
    extension, but life proved that it's bad idea. Code still there for
    backwards compatibility. It will be deleted eventually.
    * installer want work with RT 3.8.0, as it has some bugs new plugins
    sub-system.
    * layout of files has been changed between RT 3.6 and RT 3.8, old files
    may influence behaviour of your extension. Recommend people use clean
    dir on upgrade or guide how to remove old versions of your extension.

ENVIRONMENT
    RTHOME
        Path to the RT installation that contains a valid lib/RT.pm.
