Pod::Weaver::Section::Extends - Add a list of parent classes to your POD.
This Pod::Weaver section plugin creates an "EXTENDS" section in your POD which will contain a list of your class's parent classes. It accomplishes this by loading your class and inspecting their
All classes (*.pm files) in your distribution's lib directory will be loaded. Classes which do not have parent classes will be skipped.
In case you use Dist::Zilla to install dependencies of your distribution, you might encounter a quirk caused by this plugin. If you run
dzil listdeps, dzil will load this module which in turn will load all classes in lib which in turn may want to load classes which are not yet installed. Currently, there seems to be no easy way around this with Dist::Zilla alone. But there are workarounds. You could, for example, eliminate weaver.ini during the installation process:
#temporarily remove weaver.ini during install cpanm Pod::Weaver::Section::Consumes mv weaver.ini _weaver.ini dzil authordeps | cpanm dzil listdeps | cpanm mv _weaver.ini weaver.ini
Or install dependencies before you run listdeps, for example by adding them as authordeps to dist.ini.
#dist.ini #authordep JSON = 2.57
