Perl::PrereqScanner::Scanner::Perl5 - scan for core Perl 5 language indicators of required modules
This scanner will look for the following indicators: · plain lines beginning with "use", "require", or "no" in your perl modules and scripts, including minimum perl version · regular inheritance declared with the "base" and "parent" pragmata Since Perl does not allow you to supply a version requirement with a "require" statement, the scanner will check the statement after the "require Module" to see if it is "Module->VERSION( minimum_version );". In order to provide a minimum version, that method call must meet the following requirements: · it must be the very next statement after "require Module". Nothing can separate them but whitespace and comments (and one semicolon). · "Module" must be a bareword, and match the "require" exactly. · "minimum_version" must be a literal number, v-string, or single-quoted string. Double quotes are not allowed.
