NAME

Dist::Zilla::App::Command::dhmakeperl - use dh-make-perl to generate .deb archives from your CPAN package

VERSION

version 0.007

SYNOPSIS

Once the package is installed and you have setup the prereqs, you can run the following command inside your package folder:

dzil dhmakeperl

Once this is done your package will be tested and deb file will be generated in the debuild folder for you.

DESCRIPTION

This is a extension for the Dist::Zilla App that adds a command dhmakeperl to your dzil package for compiling your perl modules into .deb packages.

Before you install this package make sure that dh-make-perl is installed in your debian/ubuntu system. There are some additional app requirements that you might want to install for dh-make-perl to avoid annoying warnings from dh-make-perl.

sudo apt-get install dh-make-perl
sudo apt-get install apt-file
sudo apt-file update

To make sure that your changelog and debian control file is included use plugins Dist::Zilla::Plugin::Control::Debian and Dist::Zilla::Plugin::ChangelogFromGit::Debian in your dist.ini
