       pptemplate - script to generate Makefile.PL and PP file skeleton


               # generate Makefile.PL and mymodule.pd in CWD
               pptemplate PDL::MyModule;


       The pptemplate script is the easiest way to start a new module for PDL
       that contains PP code (see also PDL::PP). The usage is simply

         pptemplate modulename;

       As a result pptemplate will generate a perl Makefile for the new module
       (Makefile.PL) that contains the minimal structure to generate a module
       from PP code and also a skeleton file for your new module.

       The file will be called mymod.pd if you called "pptemplate" as

         pptemplate PDL::CleverAlgs::Mymod;

       I suppose you can work out the naming rule ";)". If not resort to
       experimentation or the source code.

       "pptemplate" will refuse to overwrite existing files of the same name
       to avoid accidents. Move them out of the way if you really want to
       scrap them.


       Currently there is only the "-i" option which switches "pptemplate"
       into the so called internal mode.  It should only be used when you are
       starting a new module within the main PDL tree that is supposed to be
       part of the PDL distribution and the normal PDL build process, e.g.

          cd PDL/IO;
          mkdir Mpthree; cd Mpthree;
          pptemplate -i PDL::IO::Mpthree;


       Maybe ";)".  Feedback and bug reports are welcome.
