DESCRIPTIONThis Dist::Zilla plugin adds a t/00-report-prereqs.t test file and an accompanying t/00-report-prereqs.dd data file. It reports the version of all modules listed in the distribution metadata prerequisites (including 'recommends', 'suggests', etc.). However, any 'develop' prereqs are not reported (unless they show up in another category).
If a MYMETA.json file exists and CPAN::Meta is installed on the testing machine, MYMETA.json will be examined for prerequisites in addition, as it would include any dynamic prerequisites not set in the distribution metadata.
Versions are reported based on the result of "parse_version" from ExtUtils::MakeMaker, which means prerequisite modules are not actually loaded (which avoids various edge cases with certain modules). Parse errors are reported as ``undef''. If a module is not installed, ``missing'' is reported instead of a version string.
Additionally, if CPAN::Meta is installed, unfulfilled required prerequisites are reported after the list of all versions based on either MYMETA (preferably) or META (fallback).
includeAn "include" attribute can be specified (multiple times) to add modules to the report. This can be useful if there is a module in the dependency chain that is problematic but is not directly required by this project. These modules will be listed in an ``Other Modules'' section at the end of the report.
excludeAn "exclude" attribute can be specified (multiple times) to remove modules from the report (if you had a reason to do so).
verify_prereqsWhen set, installed versions of all 'requires' prerequisites are verified against those specified. Defaults to true, but requires CPAN::Meta to be installed.
version_extractorSpecifies the module to use to extract each installed prerequisite's version. Defaults to ExtUtils::MakeMaker, which is recommended for most situations. It can also be specified as Module::Metadata, which can be useful if ExtUtils::MakeMaker's mechanism is too naive, or if ExtUtils::MakeMaker is not already a prerequisite of the distribution.
