Description : MANIFEST.SKIP management for Perl modules
Module::Manifest::Skip is mostly intended for module packaging
frameworks to share a common, up-to-date "MANIFEST.SKIP" base. For
example, Module::Install::ManifestSkip, uses this module to get the
actual SKIP content. However this module may be useful for any module
CPAN module authors use a MANIFEST.SKIP file to exclude certain well
known files from getting put into a generated MANIFEST file, which
would cause them to go into the final distribution package.
The packaging tools try to automatically skip things for you, but if
you add one of your own entries, you have to add all the common ones
yourself. This module attempts to make all of this boring process as
simple and reliable as possible.
Module::Manifest::Skip can create or update a MANIFEST.SKIP file for
you. You can add your own entries, and it will leave them alone. You
can even tell it to not skip certain entries that it normally skips,
although this is rarely needed.
