# This script will recombine the perltidy binary script and all of its
# modules into a single, monolithic script, which is how it was
# originally distributed. It might be useful for users who have
# difficulty installing modules, or prefer not to.
# usage:
# perl pm2pl
# Run this from the perltidy main installation directory. It reads
# bin/perltidy and lib/*.pm and writes a file 'perltidy' in the
# current directory.
# Then, put the file 'perltidy' in your path and it should work (You
# will also need to put the batch file 'perltidy.bat' in your path
# under msdos/windows)
# For unix systems, a sample Makefile is included as Makefile.npm
# This should work for a system with File::Spec,
# and for older Windows/Unix systems without File::Spec.
my $script = 'bin/perltidy';
my $module = 'lib/Perl/';

unless ($missing_file_spec) {
$script = File::Spec->catfile( 'bin', 'perltidy' );
$module = File::Spec->catfile( 'lib', 'Perl', '' );

# first, open the script and copy the first (hash-bang) line
# (Note: forward slashes in file names here will work in Windows)
open SCRIPT, "< $script" or die "can't open script file '$script' : $!\n";
my $hash_bang = <SCRIPT>;
print OUTFILE $hash_bang;
# then copy all modules (only one for now)
open PM, "< $module" or die "can't open my module file '$module' : $!\n";
while (<PM>) {
last if /^\s*__END__\s*$/;
print OUTFILE;
close PM;
# then, copy the rest of the script except for the 'use PerlTidy' statement

You can now run perltidy.
For a quick test, try reformatting $testfile with the following command:
perl perltidy -lp $testfile
and then compare the output in $testfile.tdy with the original file
else {
$testfile = "somefile";
print <<EOM;
You can now run perltidy to reformat any perl script.
For example, the following command:
perl perltidy $testfile
will produce the output file $testfile.tdy
