Alien::Build::Interpolate::Default - Default interpolator for Alien::Build

version 2.80

my $intr = Alien::Build::Interpolate::Default->new;


The ar command.


Requires: Alien::bison 0.17 if not already in "PATH".


Requires: Alien::Libbz2 0.04 if not already in "PATH".


The C Compiler used to build Perl


Requires: Alien::CMake 0.07 if cmake is not already in "PATH".

Deprecated: Use the Alien::Build::Plugin::Build::CMake plugin instead (which will replace this helper with one that works with Alien::cmake3 that works better).


The copy command.


The null device, if available. On Unix style operating systems this will be "/dev/null" on Windows it is "NUL".


Requires: Alien::flex 0.08 if not already in "PATH".


Requires: Alien::gmake 0.11

Deprecated: use Alien::Build::Plugin::Build::Make instead.


The Unix "install" command. Not normally available on Windows.


The linker used to build Perl


Requires: Alien::m4 0.08

Alien::m4 should pull in a version of "m4" that will work with Autotools.


Make. On Unix this will be the same make used by Perl. On Windows this will be "gmake" or "nmake" if those are available, and only "dmake" if the first two are not available.


Make directory, including all parent directories as needed. This is usually "mkdir -p" on Unix and simply "md" on windows.


Requires: Alien::nasm 0.11 if not already in the "PATH".


Requires: Alien::patch 0.09 if not already in the "PATH".

On Windows this will normally render "patch --binary", which makes patch work like it does on Unix.


Requires: Devel::FindPerl


Requires: Alien::pkgconf 0.06.



Unix style command interpreter (/bin/sh).

Deprecated: use the Alien::Build::Plugin::Build::MSYS plugin instead.


The remove command


Requires: Alien::xz 0.02 if not already in the "PATH".
