Dist::Zilla::Plugin::Prereq - list simple prerequisites


version 4.101740


In your dist.ini:

  Foo::Bar = 1.002
  MRO::Compat = 10
  Sub::Exporter = 0

Which is equivalent to specifying prerequisites for the Runtime phase:

  [Prereq / RuntimeRequires]
  Foo::Bar = 1.002
  MRO::Compat = 10
  Sub::Exporter = 0

See "Phases" for the full list of supported phases.


This module adds "fixed" prerequisites to your distribution. These are prereqs with a known, fixed minimum version that doens't change based on platform or other conditions.

You can specify prerequisites for different phases and kinds of relationships. In RuntimeRequires, the phase is Runtime and the relationship is Requires. These are described in more detail in the CPAN::Meta specification.

The phases are:

  • configure

  • build

  • test

  • runtime

  • develop

The relationship types are:

  • requires

  • recommends

  • suggests

  • conflicts

Not all of these phases are useful for all tools, especially tools that only understand version 1.x CPAN::Meta files.
