./devel/p5-File-ShareDir, Get a generic path to the share directory

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]


Branch: CURRENT, Version: 1.116nb2, Package name: p5-File-ShareDir-1.116nb2, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

The intent of File::ShareDir is to provide a companion to Class::Inspector
and File::HomeDir, modules that take a process that is well-known by
advanced Perl developers but gets a little tricky, and make it more
available to the larger Perl community.

Quite often you want or need your Perl module (CPAN or otherwise) to have
access to a large amount of read-only data that is stored on the
file-system at run-time.

On a linux-like system, this would be in a place such as /usr/share,
however Perl runs on a wide variety of different systems, and so the use
of any one location is unreliable.


Required to run:
[lang/perl5] [devel/p5-Class-Inspector]

Required to build:

Log message:
Update packages using a search.cpan.org HOMEPAGE to metacpan.org.

The former now redirects to the latter.

This covers the most simple cases where http://search.cpan.org/dist/name
can be changed to https://metacpan.org/release/name.

Reviewed by hand to hopefully make sure no unwanted changes sneak in.
