Dist::CheckConflicts - declare version conflicts for your dist

=head1 VERSION

version 0.11


    use Dist::CheckConflicts
        -dist => 'Class-MOP',
        -conflicts => {
            'Moose'                => '1.14',

One shortcoming of the CPAN clients that currently exist is that they have no
way of specifying conflicting downstream dependencies of modules. This module
attempts to work around this issue by allowing you to specify conflicting
versions of modules separately, and deal with them after the module is done

For instance, say you have a module C<Foo>, and some other module C<Bar> uses
C<Foo>. If C<Foo> were to change its API in a non-backwards-compatible way,
this would cause C<Bar> to break until it is updated to use the new API. C<Foo>
can't just depend on the fixed version of C<Bar>, because this will cause a
circular dependency (because C<Bar> is already depending on C<Foo>), and this
doesn't express intent properly anyway - C<Foo> doesn't use C<Bar> at all. The
ideal solution would be for there to be a way to specify conflicting versions
of modules in a way that would let CPAN clients update conflicting modules
automatically after an existing module is upgraded, but until that happens,
this module will allow users to do this manually.

This module accepts a hash of options passed to its C<use> statement, with
these keys being valid:

=over 4

=item -conflicts

A hashref of conflict specifications, where keys are module names, and values
are the last broken version - any version greater than the specified version
should work.

=item -also

Additional modules to get conflicts from (potentially recursively). This should
generally be a list of modules which use Dist::CheckConflicts, which correspond
to the dists that your dist depends on. (In an ideal world, this would be
intuited directly from your dependency list, but the dependency list isn't
available outside of build time).

=item -dist

The name of the distribution, to make the error message from check_conflicts
more user-friendly.


The methods listed below are exported by this module into the module that uses
it, so you should call these methods on your module, not Dist::CheckConflicts.

As an example, this command line can be used to update your modules, after
installing the C<Foo> dist (assuming that C<Foo::Conflicts> is the module in
the C<Foo> dist which uses Dist::CheckConflicts):

    perl -MFoo::Conflicts -e'print "$_\n"
        for map { $_->{package} } Foo::Conflicts->calculate_conflicts' | cpanm

As an added bonus, loading your conflicts module will provide warnings at
runtime if conflicting modules are detected (regardless of whether they are
loaded before or afterwards).

=head1 METHODS

=head2 conflicts

Returns the conflict specification (the C<-conflicts> parameter to
C<import()>), as a hash.

=head2 dist

Returns the dist name (either as specified by the C<-dist> parameter to
C<import()>, or the package name which C<use>d this module).

=head2 check_conflicts

Examine the modules that are currently installed, and throw an exception with
useful information if any modules are at versions which conflict with the dist.

=head2 calculate_conflicts

Examine the modules that are currently installed, and return a list of modules
which conflict with the dist. The modules will be returned as a list of
hashrefs, each containing C<package>, C<installed>, and C<required> keys.

=head1 BUGS
