       catalyst - Bootstrap a Catalyst application

SYNOPSIS [options] application-name

       '' creates a skeleton for a new application, and allows you
       to upgrade the skeleton of your old application.

          -force      don't create a .new file where a file to be created exists
          -help       display this help and exit
          -makefile   only update Makefile.PL
          -scripts    only update helper scripts

        application-name must be a valid Perl module name and can include "::",
        which will be converted to '-' in the project name.


        To upgrade your app to a new version of Catalyst:
  -force -scripts MyApp

       The "" script bootstraps a Catalyst application, creating a
       directory structure populated with skeleton files.

       The application name must be a valid Perl module name.  The name of the
       directory created is formed from the application name supplied, with
       double colons replaced with hyphens (so, for example, the directory for
       "My::App" is "My-App").

       Using the example application name "My::App", the application directory
       will contain the following items:

           a skeleton README file, which you are encouraged to expand on

           a changes file with an initial entry for the creation of the

           Makefile.PL uses the "Module::Install" system for packaging and
           distribution of the application.

       lib contains the application module ("My/") and subdirectories
           for model, view, and controller components ("My/App/M", "My/App/V",
           and "My/App/C").

           root directory for your web document content.  This is left empty.

           a directory containing helper scripts:

               helper script to generate new component modules

               runs the generated application within a Catalyst test server,
               which can be used for testing without resorting to a full-blown
               web server configuration.

               runs the generated application as a CGI script

               runs the generated application as a FastCGI script

               runs an action of the generated application from the command

       t   test directory

       The application module generated by the "" script is
       functional, although it reacts to all requests by outputting a friendly
       welcome screen.

       Neither "" nor the generated helper script will overwrite
       existing files.  In fact the scripts will generate new versions of any
       existing files, adding the extension ".new" to the filename.  The
       ".new" file is not created if would be identical to the existing file.

       This means you can re-run the scripts for example to see if newer
       versions of Catalyst or its plugins generate different code, or to see
       how you may have changed the generated code (although you do of course
       have all your code in a version control system anyway, don't you ...).
