Basic META.yml wrapper around meta_spec_ok.
Returns a hash reference to the contents of the parsed META.yml
meta_spec_ok($file, $version [,$msg])
Returns a hash reference to the contents of the given file, after it has been parsed.
There are currently 3 distributions to test META files:
All three have slightly different requirements and are intended to be used in slightly different environments.
Test-CPAN-Meta-YAML requires a YAML parser, and currently looks for the YAML or YAML::Syck modules. This is the original variant of the 3 and was intended to provide a more complete YAML validation of a META.yml.
Test-CPAN-Meta requires the Parse::CPAN::Meta module, which is now part of Perl Core as of perl-5.10.1. This version is intended to be used by those only wishing to rely on core modules to test their META.yml files.
Test-CPAN-Meta-JSON is the most recent addition to the family, and is specifically aimed at those distributions that use a META.json Meta file. The distribution requires the JSON module to parse the Meta file.
There are no known bugs at the time of this release. However, if you spot a bug or are experiencing difficulties that are not explained within the POD documentation, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or submit a bug to the RT system (http://rt.cpan.org/Public/Dist/Display.html?Name=Test-CPAN-Meta). However, it would help greatly if you are able to pinpoint problems or even supply a patch.
Fixes are dependent upon their severity and my availability. Should a fix not be forthcoming, please feel free to (politely) remind me.
