Perl::PrereqScanner::Scanner::Perl5

NAME

Perl::PrereqScanner::Scanner::Perl5 − scan for core Perl 5 language indicators of required modules

VERSION

version 1.014

DESCRIPTION

This scanner will look for the following indicators:

plain lines beginning with "use" or "require" in your perl modules and scripts, including minimum perl version

regular inheritance declared with the "base" and "parent" pragmata

Since Perl does not allow you to supply a version requirement with a "require" statement, the scanner will check the statement after the "require Module" to see if it is "Module−>VERSION( minimum_version );".

In order to provide a minimum version, that method call must meet the following requirements:

it must be the very next statement after "require Module". Nothing can separate them but whitespace and comments (and one semicolon).

"Module" must be a bareword, and match the "require" exactly.

"minimum_version" must be a literal number, v−string, or single-quoted string. Double quotes are not allowed.
