ExtUtils::MM_MacOS - once produced Makefiles for MacOS Classic
# MM_MacOS no longer contains any code. This is just a stub.
Once upon a time, MakeMaker could produce an approximation of a correct
Makefile on MacOS Classic (MacPerl). Due to a lack of maintainers, this
fell out of sync with the rest of MakeMaker and hadn't worked in years.
Since there's little chance of it being repaired, MacOS Classic is fading
away, and the code was icky to begin with, the code has been deleted to
make maintenance easier.
Those interested in writing modules for MacPerl should use Module::Build
which works better than MakeMaker ever did.
Anyone interested in resurrecting this file should pull the old version
from the MakeMaker CVS repository and contact firstname.lastname@example.org, but we
really encourage you to work on Module::Build instead.
