4.11.6 CPAN

Most Perl modules available from the CPAN archive use the MakeMaker module to provide configuration, build, and test services. The standard build routine for these modules looks like:

     % perl Makefile.PL
     % make
     % make test
     # make install

(except again Buildbot skips the install step)

Buildbot provides a CPAN factory to compile and test these projects.


(required): A step specification tuple, like that used by GNUAutoconf.
A string which specifies the perl executable to use. Defaults to just perl.
