In your dist.ini:

   # Any module that contains 'XS'

   # Only specified modules
   module = JSON::XS
   module = YAML::XS


Use this plugin instead of the regular ModuleBuild plugin when you are relying on XS modules that have a pure Perl fallback, eg JSON, JSON::XS and JSON::PP.

It generates a Build.PL which will promote XS modules from recommends to requires if there is a working C compiler. This behaviour can be disabled by passing a --pp flag to Build.PL.

By default, it will select any module in the recommends list that include XS in the name. Otherwise you can specify a list of modules in your dist.ini
