NAME

Module::Install::TrustMetaYml - trusts META.yml list of dependencies

SYNOPSIS

In Makefile.PL:

        trust_meta_yml;

DESCRIPTION

CPAN doesn't trust META.yml's list of dependencies for a module. Instead it expects Makefile.PL run on the computer the package is being installed upon to generate its own list of dependencies (called MYMETA.yml or MYMETA.json).

This module is a Module::Install plugin that generates MYMETA.yml by simply passing through the dependencies from META.yml.

It does nothing when run from the module author's development copy.

The module defines two functions which are aliases for each other:

trust_meta_yml
trust_meta_yaml
