Description Bryce Allen 2002-09-04 20:35:21 UTC
IPC-ShareLite is a perl module that provides a "Light-weight interface to shared
memory". It is required by Cache-Cache (ebuild to be submitted shortly).

Attached IPC-ShareLite-0.08.tar.gz contains the ebuild, ChangeLog, digest, and a
patch to Makefile.PL. The patch adds the -des options to the call to the
Configure script, to stop it from prompting the user and interrupting
installation. Here are the relevant bits from Configure -help:

  -d : use defaults for all answers.
  -e : go on without questioning past the production of
  -s : silent mode, only echoes questions and essential information.

The defaults detected by Configure -des seemed to work perfectly - I tested the
Cache::SharedMemoryCache module from Cache-Cache, which uses IPC::ShareLite.

fixed initial ebuild etc....

Sorry... the ebuild in the other archive used DEPENDS instead of DEPEND, and I
made the mistake of uploading it as an octet-stream instead of x-gzip.
Comment 3 Seemant Kulleen (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2002-09-05 00:09:47 UTC
this is an acceptable ebuild only IF it DEPENDs on anything else that is NOT
another perl modules.  Otherwise, please use CPAN for now.
Comment 4 Bryce Allen 2002-09-05 08:49:55 UTC
IPC::ShareLite does depend on virtual/glibc - it uses the shared memory
libraries. Note sure if that counts...

Cache::Cache definitely has no other dependencies. Guess that explains why there
are so few dev-perl ebuilds.
