NAME

Dist::Zilla::Plugin::Author::Plicease::SpecialPrereqs - Special prereq handling

VERSION

version 2.68

SYNOPSIS

 [Author::Plicease::SpecialPrereqs]

DESCRIPTION

Some older versions of modules have problematic for various reasons (at least in the context of how I use them). This plugin will upgrade those prereqs to appropriate version if they are 0, meaning any version.

Some modules are recommended if certain modules are already prerequisites. For example, XS modules may be recommended if otherwise pure perl modules will optionally use them.

This plugin also enforces that releases are done on MSWin32 for pure-Win32:: type modules and on a Unixy platform if they are not.

This plugin also adds a preface to your Makefile.PL or Build.PL to test the Perl version in a way that will not throw an exception, instead calling exit, so that they will not be reported on cpantesters as failures. This plugin should be the last Dist::Zilla::Role::InstallTool plugin in your dist.ini.

OPTIONS

preamble

...

upgrade

Upgrade additional prereqs. This takes a key=value pair, so something like

 [Author::Plicease::SpecialPrereqs]
 upgrade = Foo::Bar = 0.02

win32

If set to true, then the dist MUST be released on MSWin32. This is useful for Win32:: type dists that aren't testable on Unixy platforms.

If set to false, then the dist MUST NOT be released on MSWin32. This is a personal preference; I prefer not to release on non-Unixy platforms.
