Module::Install::Compiler - Commands for interacting with the C compiler

  To be completed

Many Perl modules that contains C and XS code have fiendishly complex Makefile.PL files, because ExtUtils::MakeMaker doesn't itself provide a huge amount of assistance and automation in this area.
Module::Install::Compiler provides a number of commands that take care of common utility tasks, and try to take some of intricacy out of creating C and XS modules.

To be completed

The current implementation is relatively fragile and minimalistic.
It only handles some very basic wrapper around ExtUtils::MakeMaker.
It is currently undergoing extensive refactoring to provide a more generic compiler flag generation capability. This may take some time, and if anyone who maintains a Perl module that makes use of the compiler would like to help out, your assistance would be greatly appreciated.
