Dist::Zilla::Plugin::MinimumPerl - Detects the minimum version of Perl required for your dist
This document describes v1.003 of Dist::Zilla::Plugin::MinimumPerl - released April 21, 2011 as part of Dist-Zilla-Plugin-MinimumPerl.
This plugin uses Perl::MinimumVersion to automatically find the minimum version of Perl required for your dist and adds it to the prereqs.
# In your dist.ini: [MinimumPerl]
This plugin will search for files matching
/\.(t|pl|pm)$/i in the
t/ directories. If you need it to scan a different directory and/or a different extension please let me know.
Specify a version of perl required for the dist. Please specify it in a format that Build.PL/Makefile.PL understands! If this is specified, this module will not attempt to automatically detect the minimum version of Perl.
The default is: undefined ( automatically detect it )
