NAME ^

Devel::AssertOS - require that we are running on a particular OS

DESCRIPTION ^

Devel::AssertOS is a utility module for Devel::CheckOS and Devel::AssertOS::*. It is nothing but a magic import() that lets you do this:

    use Devel::AssertOS qw(Linux FreeBSD Cygwin);

which will die unless the platform the code is running on is Linux, FreeBSD or Cygwin.

To assert that the OS is not a specific platform, prepend the platform name with a minus sign. For example, to run on anything but Amiga, do:

    use Devel::AssertOS qw(-Amiga);

BUGS and FEEDBACK ^

I welcome feedback about my code, including constructive criticism. Bug reports should be made using http://rt.cpan.org/ or by email.

You will need to include in your bug report the exact value of $^O, what the OS is called (eg Windows Vista 64 bit Ultimate Home Edition), and, if relevant, what "OS family" it should be in and who wrote it.

If you are feeling particularly generous you can encourage me in my open source endeavours by buying me something from my wishlist: http://www.cantrell.org.uk/david/wishlist/
