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:

[*] If you're playing along at home, be sure not to install this pretend module anywhere but in a temporary, testing directory. Although removing an installed module is generally difficult, you'll be able to simply delete the testing directory, along with its contents.

$ 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/.

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.[Section 16.7.  Trivial make install]

[Section 16.7.  Trivial make install] On a non-Unix system, or even a few odd Unix systems, you'll see different behavior but roughly the same overall result.
