NAME

Module::Build::Platform::MacOS - Builder class for MacOS platforms  

DESCRIPTION

The sole purpose of this module is to inherit from "Module::Build::Base" and override a few methods. Please see Module::Build for the docs.  

Overriden Methods

new()
MacPerl doesn't define $Config{sitelib} or $Config{sitearch} for some reason, but $Config{installsitelib} and $Config{installsitearch} are there. So we copy the install variables to the other location
make_executable()
On MacOS we set the file type and creator to MacPerl so it will run with a double-click.
dispatch()
Because there's no easy way to say ``./Build test'' on MacOS, if dispatch is called with no arguments and no @ARGV a dialog box will pop up asking what action to take and any extra arguments.

Default action is ``test''.

ACTION_realclean()
Need to unlock the Build program before deleting.
