This is a CPAN distribution of the venerable MakeMaker module. It has been backported to work with Perl 5.005_03 and up. If you do not have a make program, several can be found... Most Unixen: The make utility which comes with your operating system should work fine. If you don't have one, GNU make is recommended, most others (Sun, BSD, etc...) will work fine as well. http://www.gnu.org/software/make/make.html GNU make Windows: nmake or dmake will work. GNU make will *not*. ftp://ftp.microsoft.com/Softlib/MSLFILES/nmake15.exe nmake http://search.cpan.org/author/GSAR/dmake-4.1pl1-win32/ dmake VMS: MMS or the free MadGoat MaKe utility (MMK) will work. http://www.madgoat.com/mmk.html MMK If all else fails there is a pure Perl version of make available on CPAN which should work on most Unixen. http://search.cpan.org/author/NI-S/Make-1.00/ pmake PLEASE NOTE: This distribution does not include the xsubpp or typemap programs. They are extremely specific to your version or Perl, so MakeMaker will simply use the one which came with your copy of Perl. Do not delete your old ExtUtils/ directory. An upgraded version of xsubpp can be found in the ExtUtils::ParseXS module. Known Good Systems: Every stable MakeMaker release is tested at least on: MacOS X Linux/x86 ActivePerl on Windows 98 Cygwin on Windows 98 OpenVMS Covering the major portability flavors MakeMaker has to cover. (I'm always on the lookout for DJGPP, Solaris, *BSD and OS/2 users) Known Problems: (See http://rt.cpan.org for a full list of open problems.) ActivePerl likely broken if installed in C:\Program Files or other prefix with a space in the name. Using the MMS utility on VMS causes lots of extra newlines. Unknown why this is so, might be a bug in MMS. Problem not seen with MMK. MacOS Classic is likely broken. See TODO for details. Please report any bugs via http://rt.cpan.org or to firstname.lastname@example.org.
