Perl modules branch: I was wrong to demote Module::Build to a subsidiary module dependency.

25 <para>
26 The <application>Perl</application> module packages (also referred to as
27 Distributions, because each can contain multiple modules) add useful
28 objects to the <application>Perl</application> language. The packages
29 listed on this page are required or recommended for other packages in
30 the book. If they have dependent modules, those are either on this page
31 or else on the next page.
32 </para>
33
34 <para>
35 Modules utilized by packages throughout BLFS are listed here, along with
36 their dependencies. The various ways of building and installing perl
37 modules are shown at the bottom of this page.
38 </para>
39
40 <para>
41 In many cases, only the required or recommended dependencies are listed -
42 there might be other modules which allow more tests to be run, but
43 omitting them will still allow the tests to <literal>PASS</literal>.
44 </para>
45
46 <para>
47 For a few modules, the BLFS editors have determined that other modules
48 still listed as prerequisites are not required, and omitted them.
49 </para>
50
51 <para>
52 It is generally worth running the tests for perl modules, they often
53 can show problems such as missing dependencies which are required to
54 use the module. In some cases, such dependencies are marked as
55 '(for the testsuite)'.
56 </para>
57
58 <para>
59 It is possible to automatically install the current versions of a module and
60 any missing or too-old dependencies using CPAN. See the end of this page for
61 details.
62 </para>
63
64 <para>
65 Most of these modules only install files below <filename
66 class="directory">/usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.xx.y</filename> and those will
67 not be documented. One or two install programs (mostly, perl scripts), or
68 a library, into <filename class="directory">/usr/bin/</filename> or
69 <filename class="directory">/usr/lib/</filename> and these
70 <emphasis>are</emphasis> documented.
71 </para>
72
73 <note>
74 <para>
75 This is a reminder to an editor to deal with Data-Uniquid (needs patch) and
76 those modules which use the unsafe variant of the standard install.
