No invariant dependencies
This distribution only contains the programs to run the tests and according data. It uses a lot of libs from CPAN with all their dependencies but it does not contain invariant versions of those used dependency libs.
That means your performance output may change just because a far away lib that you upgraded in the meantime changes its performance.
If total invariance is important to you, you are responsible to provide that invariant environment by yourself. You could, for instance, create a local CPAN mirror with CPAN::Mini and never upgrade it. Then use that mirror for all your installations of Benchmark::Perl::Formance.
On the other side the current behaviour could be used to track the performance of your installation over time by continuously upgrading from CPAN. I always upgrade from CPAN whatever I can; so I consider that a feature.
To install this module, run the following commands:
perl Build.PL ./Build ./Build test ./Build install
