File-Replace ============ This is the distribution of the Perl module `File::Replace`. It is a Perl extension for replacing files by renaming a temp file over the original. Please see the module's documentation (POD) for details (try the command `perldoc lib/File/`) and the file `Changes` for version information. Installation ------------ To install this module type the following: perl Makefile.PL make make test make install If you are running Windows, you may need to use `dmake`, `nmake`, or `gmake` instead of `make`. Dependencies ------------ Requirements: Perl v5.8.1 or higher (a more current version is *strongly* recommended) and several of its core modules; users of older Perls may need to upgrade some core modules. The full list of required modules can be found in the file `Makefile.PL`. This module should work on any platform supported by these modules.
