App::EUMM::Upgrade - Perl tool to upgrade ExtUtils::MakeMaker-based Makefile.PL
eumm-upgrade is a tool to allow using new features of ExtUtils::MakeMaker without losing compatibility with older versions. It adds compatibility code to Makefile.PL and tries to automatically detect some properties like license, minimum Perl version required and repository used.
Just run eumm-upgrade.pl in directory with Makefile.PL. Old file will be copied to Makefile.PL.bak. If you use Github, Internet connection is required.
You need to check resulting Makefile.PL manually as transformation is done with regular expressions.
If you need to declare number of spaces in indent in Makefile.PL, use following string at start of it (set 'c-basic-offset' to your value):
# -*- mode: perl; c-basic-offset: 4; indent-tabs-mode: nil; -*-
LICENSE - shows license on search.cpan.org
META_MERGE - add something (like repository URL or bugtracker UTL) to META.yml. Repository and bugtracker URL are used on search.cpan.org.
MIN_PERL_VERSION - minimum version of Perl required for module work. Not used currently, but will be in the future.
CONFIGURE_REQUIRES - modules that are used in Makefile.PL and should be installed before running it.
TEST_REQUIRES - modules that are used in tests, but are not required by module itself. Useful for ppm/OS package generaton and metadata parsing tools.
BUILD_REQUIRES - same as TEST_REQUIRES, but for building
AUTHOR - can be arrayref to allow several authors
