ZC Buildout recipe for installing a Perl package

Project Description

Recipe for installing Perl packages via download

The perlpackages recipe automates installation of Perl packages.

This recipe is similar to zc.recipe.cmmi, but instead of performing “configure, make, make install” it uses “perl Makefile.PL” for the configure step.


Location to download the Perl distribution from.
Additional parameters that are passed to Makefile.PL.
Name of the Perl interpreter to use for “perl Makefile.PL”. Defaults to “perl”.

Set the installation prefix, and force all library, doc and bin files to be flattened into three install locations:

${flatinstallprefix}/lib/perl5/ ${flatinstallprefix}/bin/ ${flatinstallprefix}/man/

This is suitable for creating a location that you can include in your PERL5LIB environment variable.
