NAME

Dist::Zilla::Plugin::Prereqs - list simple prerequisites

CONTENTS

VERSION

version 4.300030

SYNOPSIS

In your dist.ini:



  [Prereqs]
  Foo::Bar = 1.002
  MRO::Compat = 10
  Sub::Exporter = 0



You can specify requirements for different phases and relationships with:



  [Prereqs]
  -phase = test
  -relationship = recommends

  Fitz::Fotz    = 1.23
  Text::SoundEx = 3



Remember that if you load two Prereqs plugins, each will needs its own name, added like this:



  [Prereqs / PluginName]
  -phase = test
  -relationship = recommends

  Fitz::Fotz    = 1.23
  Text::SoundEx = 3



If the name is the CamelCase concatenation of a phase and relationship (or just a relationship), it will set those parameters implicitly. If you use a custom name, but it does not specify the relationship, and you didn’t specify either -phase or -relationship, it throws the error No -phase or -relationship specified. This is to prevent a typo that makes the name meaningless from slipping by unnoticed.

The example below is equivalent to the example above, except for the name of the resulting plugin:



  [Prereqs / TestRecommends]
  Fitz::Fotz    = 1.23
  Text::SoundEx = 3



DESCRIPTION

This module adds fixed prerequisites to your distribution. These are prereqs with a known, fixed minimum version that doens’t change based on platform or other conditions.

You can specify prerequisites for different phases and kinds of relationships. In RuntimeRequires, the phase is Runtime and the relationship is Requires. These are described in more detail in the CPAN::Meta specification.

The phases are:
o configure
o build
o test
o runtime
o develop
The relationship types are:
o requires
o recommends
o suggests
o conflicts
If the phase is omitted, it will default to runtime; thus, specifying Prereqs / Recommends in your dist.ini is equivalent to RuntimeRecommends.

Not all of these phases are useful for all tools, especially tools that only understand version 1.x CPAN::Meta files.
