use-devel-assertos - a script to package Devel::AssertOS modules with your code.
when run in the directory in which your shiny new module lives,
will bundle whichever Devel::AssertOS modules you ask it to in the
and update your Makefile.PL (or Build.PL) appropriately.
If neither exists,
it will create a Makefile.PL.
The MANIFEST file is updated if any files are created.

But note that if you use
Module::Install you are encouraged to use
In the example above, this will insert code to make your module depend on one of the specified OSes, as well as update Makefile.PL / Build.PL / MANIFEST. By default it's rather noisy, but you can suppress that by passing -q as the first parameter.
To get a list of supported platforms, do this:
This script has not been thoroughly tested. You should check by hand that it has done what you expected after running it.
If you use Module::Build::Compat to write a Makefile.PL, then you will need to re-run this script whenever you have generated a new Makefile.PL.
I welcome feedback about my code, including constructive criticism. Bug reports should be made using http://rt.cpan.org/ or by email.
