Alien::gzip - Find or build gzip
use Alien::gzip; use Env qw( @PATH ); # Add gzip to the path if it isn't there already push @PATH, Alien::gzip->bin_dir;
Many environments provide the gzip command, but a few do not. Using this module in your
Build.PL (or elsewhere) you can make sure that gzip will be available. If the system provides it, then great, this module is a no-op. If it does not, then it will download and install it into a private location so that it can be added to the
PATH when this module is used.
