module for removing the old module before installing the new one


Module::Build::CleanInstall is a subclass of Module::Build with one additional feature, before upgrading the module from and old version to a new one, it first removes the files installed by the previous version. This is useful especially when the new version will not contain some files that the old one did, and it is necessary that those files do not remain in place.

Since it is a subclass of Module::Build it is used exactly like that module. Module::Build::CleanInstall does provide an additional action uninstall, but it need not be called separately; the action install will call it when invoked.

The uninstalling is done by removing the files in the installed module's packlist which is created when the module is first installed.
