Dist::Zilla::Plugin::RemovePrereqsMatching - A more flexible prereq remover
This document describes version 0.002 of Dist::Zilla::Plugin::RemovePrereqsMatching - released June 18, 2012 as part of Dist-Zilla-Plugin-RemovePrereqsMatching.
; in your dist.ini [RemovePrereqsMatching] remove_matching = ^Template::Whatever::.*$ remove_matching = ^Dist::Zilla.*$
This plugin builds on Dist::Zilla::Plugin::RemovePrereqs to allow prerequisites to be removed by regular expression, rather than string equality. This can be useful when you have a
DPAN package consisting of a bunch of modules under a common namespace, whose installation can be handled by one common prerequisite specification.
We implement this method to scan the list of prerequisites assembled to date, and remove any tat match any of the expressions given to us.
This option defines a regular expression that will be used to test prerequisites for removal. We may be specified multiple times to define multiple expressions to test prerequisites against; a prerequisite needs to match at least one expression to be excluded.
Please see those modules/websites for more information related to this module.
