Updates of ExtUtils::ModuleMaker, ExtUtils::ModuleMaker::PBP NowAvailable
Message ID:
Version 0.43 of Perl extension ExtUtils::ModuleMaker is now available on 
CPAN ( as is version 
0.08 of ExtUtils::ModuleMaker::PBP 

ExtUtils::ModuleMaker was created by Geoff Avery and is a replacement 
for the most typical use of the 'h2xs' utility bundled with all Perl 
distributions: the creation of the directories and files required for a 
pure-Perl module to be installable with 'make' and distributable on CPAN.

ExtUtils::ModuleMaker::PBP subclasses ExtUtils::ModuleMaker to create 
the same type of distribution framework as its parent, but in the style 
recommended by Damian Conway in "Perl Best Practices."

A more complete description of the new functionality provided by these 
extensions has been posted to comp.lang.perl.modules and may be viewed here:
