NAME

Dist::Zilla::Plugin::MetaData::BuiltWith - Report what versions of things your distribution was built against

VERSION

version 0.04000002

SYNOPSIS

[MetaData::BuiltWith]
include = Some::Module::Thats::Not::In::Preq
exclude = Some::Module::Youre::Ashamed::Of
show_uname = 1           ; default is 0
show_config = 1          ; default is 0
uname_call = uname        ; the default
uname_args = -s -r -m -p  ; the default is -a

DESCRIPTION

Often, distribution authors get module dependencies wrong. So in such cases, its handy to be able to see what version of various packages they built with.

Some would prefer to demand everyone install the same version as they did, but that's also not always necessary.

Hopefully, the existence of the metadata provided by this module will help users on their end machines make intelligent choices about what modules to install in the event of a problem.

OPTIONS

exclude

Specify modules to exclude from version reporting

exclude = Foo
exclude = Bar

include

Specify additional modules to include the version of

include = Foo
include = Bar

show_config

Report "interesting" values from %Config::Config

show_config = 1 ; Boolean

show_uname

Report the output from uname

show_uname = 1 ; Boolean

uname_call

Specify what the system uname function is called

uname_call = uname ; String

uname_args

Specify arguments passed to the uname call.

uname_args = -a ; String

METHODS

mvp_multivalue_args

This module can take, as parameters, any volume of 'exclude' or 'include' arguments.

metadata

This module scrapes together the name of all modules that exist in the "Prereqs" section that Dist::Zilla collects, and then works out what version of things you have, applies the various include/exclude rules, and ships that data back to Dist::Zilla via this method. See Dist::Zilla's MetaProvider role for more details.
