Alien::Build::Plugin::Fetch::Local - Plugin for fetching a local file

version 2.80

use alienfile;
share {
  start_url 'patch/libfoo-1.00.tar.gz';
  plugin 'Fetch::Local';

Note: in most case you will want to use Alien::Build::Plugin::Download::Negotiate instead. It picks the appropriate fetch plugin based on your platform and environment. In some cases you may need to use this plugin directly instead.

This fetch plugin fetches files from the local file system. It is mostly useful if you intend to bundle packages (as tarballs or zip files) with your Alien. If you intend to bundle a source tree, use Alien::Build::Plugin::Fetch::LocalDir.

The initial URL to fetch. This may be a "file://" style URL, or just the path on the local system.

The directory from which the URL should be relative. The default is usually reasonable.

This property is for compatibility with other fetch plugins, but is not used.
