in thread Can ExtUtils::MakeMaker recommend to install optional modules?

Here's how you specify recommended/suggested dependencies:

For the record: there is a difference between recommends and suggests.

The two (and requires and conflicts) exist so the module author has more control over, well, recommendations and suggestions. Not all versions of all clients support the newest spec, but recent ones do.

Hope this helps!


The way forward always starts with a minimal test.
