 I think it twas in html .. it might have been in the mod_perl

Well, the ExtUtils::MakeMaker man page contains similiar words of
wisdom, but I don't think it's really what you're after...

   How To Write A Makefile.PL

   The short answer is: Don't.

   Always begin with h2xs.
   Always begin with h2xs!

   even if you're not building around a header file, and even
   if you don't have an XS component.

h2xs is the best little secret around though I will note that the new
'instant perl modules' book does actually have a small blurb about it.

Steven also had these published on Perlmonth as I recall.
