ExtUtils::Install(3)   Perl Programmers Reference Guide	  ExtUtils::Install(3)

NAME
       ExtUtils::Install - install files from here to there

SYNOPSIS
	 use ExtUtils::Install;

	 install({ 'blib/lib' => 'some/install/dir' } );

	 uninstall($packlist);

	 pm_to_blib({ 'lib/Foo/Bar.pm' => 'blib/lib/Foo/Bar.pm' });

DESCRIPTION
       Handles the installing and uninstalling of perl modules, scripts, man
       pages, etc...

       Both install() and uninstall() are specific to the way
       ExtUtils::MakeMaker handles the installation and deinstallation of perl
       modules. They are not designed as general purpose tools.

       On some operating systems such as Win32 installation may not be
       possible until after a reboot has occured. This can have varying
       consequences: removing an old DLL does not impact programs using the
       new one, but if a new DLL cannot be installed properly until reboot
       then anything depending on it must wait. The package variable

	 $ExtUtils::Install::MUST_REBOOT

       is used to store this status.

       If this variable is true then such an operation has occured and
       anything depending on this module cannot proceed until a reboot has
       occured.

       If this value is defined but false then such an operation has ocurred,
       but should not impact later operations.

       Functions

       install
	       install(\%from_to);
	       install(\%from_to, $verbose, $dont_execute, $uninstall_shadows, $skip);

	   Copies each directory tree of %from_to to its corresponding value
	   preserving timestamps and permissions.

	   There are two keys with a special meaning in the hash: "read" and
	   "write".  These contain packlist files.  After the copying is done,
	   install() will write the list of target files to $from_to{write}.
	   If $from_to{read} is given the contents of this file will be merged
	   into the written file. The read and the written file may be
	   identical, but on AFS it is quite likely that people are installing
	   to a different directory than the one where the files later appear.

	   If $verbose is true, will print out each file removed.  Default is
	   false.  This is "make install VERBINST=1". $verbose values going up
	   to 5 show increasingly more diagnostics output.

	   If $dont_execute is true it will only print what it was going to do
	   without actually doing it.  Default is false.

	   If $uninstall_shadows is true any differing versions throughout
	   @INC will be uninstalled.  This is "make install UNINST=1"

	   As of 1.37_02 install() supports the use of a list of patterns to
	   filter out files that shouldn't be installed. If $skip is omitted
	   or undefined then install will try to read the list from
	   INSTALL.SKIP in the CWD.  This file is a list of regular
	   expressions and is just like the MANIFEST.SKIP file used by
	   ExtUtils::Manifest.

	   A default site INSTALL.SKIP may be provided by setting then
	   environment variable EU_INSTALL_SITE_SKIPFILE, this will only be
	   used when there isn't a distribution specific INSTALL.SKIP. If the
	   environment variable EU_INSTALL_IGNORE_SKIP is true then no install
	   file filtering will be performed.

	   If $skip is undefined then the skip file will be autodetected and
	   used if it is found. If $skip is a reference to an array then it is
	   assumed the array contains the list of patterns, if $skip is a true
	   non reference it is assumed to be the filename holding the list of
	   patterns, any other value of $skip is taken to mean that no install
	   filtering should occur.

       install_default DISCOURAGED
	       install_default();
	       install_default($fullext);

	   Calls install() with arguments to copy a module from blib/ to the
	   default site installation location.

	   $fullext is the name of the module converted to a directory (ie.
	   Foo::Bar would be Foo/Bar).	If $fullext is not specified, it will
	   attempt to read it from @ARGV.

	   This is primarily useful for install scripts.

	   NOTE This function is not really useful because of the hard-coded
	   install location with no way to control site vs core vs vendor
	   directories and the strange way in which the module name is given.
	   Consider its use discouraged.

       uninstall
	       uninstall($packlist_file);
	       uninstall($packlist_file, $verbose, $dont_execute);

	   Removes the files listed in a $packlist_file.

	   If $verbose is true, will print out each file removed.  Default is
	   false.

	   If $dont_execute is true it will only print what it was going to do
	   without actually doing it.  Default is false.

       pm_to_blib
	       pm_to_blib(\%from_to, $autosplit_dir);
	       pm_to_blib(\%from_to, $autosplit_dir, $filter_cmd);

	   Copies each key of %from_to to its corresponding value efficiently.
	   Filenames with the extension .pm are autosplit into the
	   $autosplit_dir.  Any destination directories are created.

	   $filter_cmd is an optional shell command to run each .pm file
	   through prior to splitting and copying.  Input is the contents of
	   the module, output the new module contents.

	   You can have an environment variable PERL_INSTALL_ROOT set which
	   will be prepended as a directory to each installed file (and
	   directory).

ENVIRONMENT
       PERL_INSTALL_ROOT
	   Will be prepended to each install path.

       EU_INSTALL_IGNORE_SKIP
	   Will prevent the automatic use of INSTALL.SKIP as the install skip
	   file.

       EU_INSTALL_SITE_SKIPFILE
	   If there is no INSTALL.SKIP file in the make directory then this
	   value can be used to provide a default.
