NAME Dist::Zilla::Plugin::RequiresExternal - make dists require external commands VERSION version 1.009 SYNOPSIS In your dist.ini: [RequiresExternal] requires = /path/to/some/executable requires = executable_in_path DESCRIPTION This Dist::Zilla plugin creates a test in your distribution to check for the existence of executable commands you require. ATTRIBUTES requires Each requires attribute should be either an absolute path to an executable or the name of a command in the user's PATH environment. Multiple requires lines are allowed. Example from a dist.ini file: [RequiresExternal] requires = sqlplus requires = /usr/bin/java This will require the program sqlplus to be available somewhere in the user's PATH and the program java specifically in /usr/bin. fatal Boolean value to determine if a failed test will immediately stop testing. It also causes the test name to change to t/000-requires_external.t so that it runs earlier. Defaults to false. METHODS gather_files Adds a t/requires_external.t test script to your distribution that checks if each "requires" item is executable. metadata Using this plugin will add Test::Most and Env::Path to your distribution's testing prerequisites since the generated script uses those modules. SEE ALSO This module was indirectly inspired by Module::Install::External's requires_external_bin command.
