Dist::Zilla::Plugin::RemovePrereqs::Provided This module is a utility for people who are working with self-consuming code ( predominantly "Dist::Zilla" distributions ) who wish to avoid self-dependencies in cases where some other prerequisite providing tool is over-zealous in determining prerequisites. This is an initial implementation that assumes you have "[MetaProvides]" of some description in place, and uses the data it provides to make sure the same modules don't exist as prerequisites. INSTALLATION This is a Perl module distribution. It should be installed with whichever tool you use to manage your installation of Perl, e.g. any of cpanm . cpan . cpanp -i . Consult http://www.cpan.org/modules/INSTALL.html for further instruction. Should you wish to install this module manually, the procedure is perl Makefile.PL make make test make install COPYRIGHT AND LICENSE This software is copyright (c) 2017 by Kent Fredric <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
