Apache2::Build
Methods for locating and parsing bits of Apache source code

Apache2::Build - Methods for locating and parsing bits of Apache source code


NAME

Apache2::Build - Methods for locating and parsing bits of Apache source code


SYNOPSIS


 use Apache2::Build ();

 my $build = Apache2::Build->new;

 # rebuild mod_perl with build opts from the previous build

 % cd modperl-2.0

 % perl -MApache2::Build -e rebuild


DESCRIPTION

This module provides methods for locating and parsing bits of Apache source code.

Since mod_perl remembers what build options were used to build it, you can use this knowledge to rebuild it using the same options. Simply chdir to the mod_perl source directory and run:


  % cd modperl-2.0

  % perl -MApache2::Build -e rebuild

If you want to rebuild not yet installed, but already built mod_perl, run from its root directory:


  % perl -Ilib -MApache2::Build -e rebuild


METHODS

new
Create an object blessed into the Apache2::Build class.

 my $build = Apache2::Build->new;

dir
Top level directory where source files are located.

 my $dir = $build->dir;

 -d $dir or die "can't stat $dir $!\n";

find
Searches for apache source directories, return a list of those found.

Example:


 for my $dir ($build->find) {

    my $yn = prompt "Configure with $dir ?", "y";

    ...

 }

inc
Print include paths for MakeMaker's INC argument to WriteMakefile.

Example:


 use ExtUtils::MakeMaker;

 use Apache2::Build ();

 WriteMakefile(

     'NAME'    => 'Apache2::Module',

     'VERSION' => '0.01',

     'INC'     => Apache2::Build->new->inc,

 );

module_magic_number
Return the MODULE_MAGIC_NUMBER defined in the apache source.

Example:


 my $mmn = $build->module_magic_number;

httpd_version
Return the server version.

Example:


 my $v = $build->httpd_version;

otherldflags
Return other ld flags for MakeMaker's dynamic_lib argument to WriteMakefile. This might be needed on systems like AIX that need special flags to the linker to be able to reference mod_perl or httpd symbols.

Example:


 use ExtUtils::MakeMaker;

 use Apache2::Build ();

 WriteMakefile(

     'NAME'        => 'Apache2::Module',

     'VERSION'     => '0.01', 

     'INC'         => Apache2::Build->new->inc,

     'dynamic_lib' => {

         'OTHERLDFLAGS' => Apache2::Build->new->otherldflags,

     },

 );
