View as plain text  
Hi,

I'd like to announce the first public release of "makerpm.pl", a script
for generating RPM packages from Perl packages. It is based on the
standard MakeMaker mechanism, thus hopefully compliant to both Perl
and RPM standards. To use it, you simply

  - store makerpm.pl and the packages .tar.gz file in
    /usr/src/redhat/SOURCES
  - run

	makerpm --specs --source=<package>-<version>.tar.gz

    this will create a SPECS file in /usr/src/redhat/SPECS
  - run

	rpm -ba /usr/src/redhat/SPECS/<package>-<version>.spec

    this will create binary and source RPM's


I intend to enhance the script for building PPM files ASAP. Any
feedback welcome.

The script is available from any CPAN mirror, in particular

  ftp://ftp.funet.fi/pub/languages/perl/CPAN/authors/id/JWIED



Bye,

Jochen
