Dist::Zilla::Plugin::RequiresExternal - make dists require external commands
[RequiresExternal] requires = /path/to/some/executable requires = executable_in_path
This Dist::Zilla plugin creates a test in your distribution to check for the existence of executable commands you require.
requires attribute should be either an absolute path to an executable
or the name of a command in the user's
PATH environment. Multiple
requires lines are allowed.
Example from a
[RequiresExternal] requires = sqlplus requires = /usr/bin/java
This will require the program
sqlplus to be available somewhere in the
PATH and the program
java specifically in
Boolean value to determine if a failed test will immediately stop testing.
It also causes the test name to change to
t/000-requires_external.t so that
it runs earlier.
Defaults to false.
t/requires_external.t test script to your distribution that checks
if each "requires" item is executable.
This module was indirectly inspired by Module::Install::External's requires_external_bin command.
