16:55 sivoais mohawk: btw, I added Inline 'with' support to the latest release of Image::Leptonica (v0.02)
16:56 sivoais There's a test for it in t/inline.t
16:56 sivoais but now I have to work on docs :-)
17:05 mohawk ha ha, yes you do
17:05 mohawk i saw the update from github
17:05 mohawk damn good work!
17:06 mohawk if you're interested, i heard back from a/the EU::D guy - he's interested in the Inline support idea, but wants to revisit the design
17:07 mohawk i think i can do it elegantly
17:07 mohawk (i mention this here as jberger might just be interested)
17:08 mohawk he regards *::Install::Files as an implementation detail that probably shouldn't be widely documented and relied on, and i agree
17:09 mohawk i think instead i might propose each EU::D-supporting package has "use autouse Package::Install::Files qw(Inline);", and that mod's Inline function return-vals will be used by EU::D to return INC etc, rather than the current not-so-good package-vars thing
17:10 mohawk any thoughts?
17:12 sivoais Yeah, that sounds fine to me. Cleaner and easier to override if needed
17:24 mohawk in other words, conforming to EU::D would just mean implementing *::I::F::Inline('C') that returned relevant keys
17:25 mohawk ...which would be done automatically (of course) by the save_config proc
17:25 mohawk unless you have any further insight-inspiring comments, i'll bounce that off him?
17:32 sivoais yeah, that makes sense
17:33 mohawk awesome
17:58 mohawk email sent, let's see what happens ;)
17:58 mohawk sivoais, do you support ExtUtils::Depends in your mod? :)
18:00 bulk88 joined #pdl
18:06 sivoais mohawk: yes, that's how I install and find the typemap
18:09 mohawk awesome!
