01:34 willthechill I was gonna ask this as a question only, but since it should be documented I filed an issue instead...  https://github.com/Perl5-Alien/Alien-Base/issues/170
02:46 willthechill plicease & jberger: okay I'm ready for some help please  :-)
02:46 willthechill https://travis-ci.org/wbraswell/alien-astyle/jobs/189713276
02:47 willthechill https://github.com/wbraswell/alien-astyle
04:17 willthechill $ perl -e 'use Alien::astyle;'
04:17 willthechill Can't locate Alien/astyle/ConfigData.pm in @INC (you may need to install the Alien::astyle::ConfigData module)
04:17 willthechill help please anybody?  :-)
04:59 jberger That should be generated during build
04:59 jberger That's the generated config file i told you about
04:59 jberger It has all the paths that the libraries can be found at
05:00 jberger Did you install or are you trying this from a build directory?
06:06 willthechill hmmm I was trying it from the build directory, I have gotten farther now using the install mechanism
06:06 willthechill I finally got it to actually hit the server and download the tarball for astyle!  :-)
06:07 willthechill now it's trying to run `./configure` which doesn't exist for astyle, so on to build config
08:36 willthechill okay I figured it out, can build now, next step is dzilla then CPAN
12:28 willthechill WE HAVE LIFTOFF!  :-D
12:28 willthechill https://metacpan.org/release/WBRASWELL/Alien-astyle-0.001000
12:29 willthechill man, learning dzilla was kindof a pain, and I think I found a dzilla bug...
12:29 willthechill if anybody wants to take a look and test or give feedback, I'd definitely appreciate it  :-)
13:40 plicease willthechill: I am only using capture_tiny to hide any errors from the user installing the package
13:40 plicease but it isn't strictly speaking necessary.
13:41 plicease Capture::Tiny is already a prereq for AB, so it is sort of a free prereq for Alien::m4
14:02 willthechill okay good to know, thanks!  :-)
19:49 kaniini should use make -D not GNU-specific --directory
19:49 kaniini :(
20:44 plicease kaniini: agree.  It is showing up in cpan testers http://www.cpantesters.org/cpan/report/3ee4eb90-d4d5-11e6-a3ce-a8b34fdda3ae
20:46 plicease actually I think it is -C ?
20:48 plicease It looks like the makefiles actually require gnu make so what he really needs is Alien::gmake
20:49 plicease contemplating sending a PR
21:05 plicease done: https://github.com/wbraswell/alien-astyle/pull/2
