prereqs

Returns CPAN::Meta::Prereqs object out of the parsed cpanfile.

prereq_specs

Returns a hash reference that should be passed to CPAN::Meta::Prereqs->new.

merge_meta
  $file->merge_meta('META.yml');
  $file->merge_meta('MYMETA.json', '2.0');

Merge the effective prereqs with Meta speicifcation loaded from the given META file, using CPAN::Meta. You can specify the META spec version in the second argument, which defaults to 1.4 in case the given file is YAML, and 2 if it is JSON.
