NAME

Dist::Zilla::Prereqs - the prerequisites of a Dist::Zilla distribution

VERSION

version 6.020

DESCRIPTION

Dist::Zilla::Prereqs is a subcomponent of Dist::Zilla. The prereqs attribute on your Dist::Zilla object is a Dist::Zilla::Prereqs object, and is responsible for keeping track of the distribution's prerequisites.

In fact, a Dist::Zilla::Prereqs object is just a thin layer over a CPAN::Meta::Prereqs object, stored in the cpan_meta_prereqs attribute.

Almost everything this object does is proxied to the CPAN::Meta::Prereqs object, so you should really read how that works.

Dist::Zilla::Prereqs proxies the following methods to the CPAN::Meta::Prereqs object:

  • finalize

  • is_finalized

  • requirements_for

  • as_string_hash

PERL VERSION SUPPORT

This module has the same support period as perl itself: it supports the two most recent versions of perl. (That is, if the most recently released version is v5.40, then this module should work on both v5.40 and v5.38.)

Although it may work on older versions of perl, no guarantee is made that the minimum required version will not be increased. The version may be increased for any reason, and there is no promise that patches will be accepted to lower the minimum required perl.

METHODS

register_prereqs

  $prereqs->register_prereqs(%prereqs);

  $prereqs->register_prereqs(\%arg, %prereqs);

This method adds new minimums to the prereqs object. If a hashref is the first arg, it may have entries for phase and type to indicate what kind of prereqs are being registered. (For more information on phase and type, see CPAN::Meta::Spec.) For example, you might say:

  $prereqs->register_prereqs(
    { phase => 'test', type => 'recommends' },
    'Test::Foo' => '1.23',
    'XML::YZZY' => '2.01',
  );

If not given, phase and type default to runtime and requires, respectively.
