16.7. Trivial make install
Since you know the module can at least compile, let's be daring and install it. Of course, you're installing it only into the path specified by the PREFIX in the earlier step, but that's enough to show how it would have worked for the user's installation .[*] The installation is triggered with make install:
$ make install Manifying blib/man3/Island::Plotting::Maps.3 Installing /home/ginger/Testing/lib/site_perl/5.8.7/Island/Plotting/Maps.pm Installing /home/ginger/Testing/man/man3/Island::Plotting::Maps.3 Writing /home/ginger/Testing/lib/site_perl/5.8.7/darwin/auto/Island/Plotting/Maps/. packlist Appending installation info to /home/ginger/Testing/lib/site_perl/5.8.7/darwin/ perllocal.pod
Note that you're installing the module below the $PREFIX/lib/site_lib directory (presuming a PREFIX of /home/ginger/Testing from earlier) and a manpage below $PREFIX/man (on Unix machines, in the Section 3 area for subroutines, for example). The manpage comes automatically when you extract the module's POD data and convert it to TRoff -man code, making it compatible with the Unix man command.
