in reply to Module Makefile.PL conditional PREREQ_PM

No CPAN client uses what is listed in META.yml to resolve prereqs, they all run Makefile.PL to determine those.

CPAN clients will use the configure_requires field in META.yml to determine any prereqs that require resolving before Makefile.PL is executed.

Any other prereqs listed in META.yml may or may not be accurate, this is the price for a Turing complete build system

Both v1.4 of the META specification and CPAN::Meta::Spec deal with this using the 'dynamic_config' field.

    Depends on what you mean by client. Tools such as CPAN::FindDependencies and CPANdeps use META.yml for obvious reasons.

[ambrus]: oiskuu: definitely not silly. have you ever tried to remove cat hair or dog hair from clothes? for many clothes, it's pretty hard, and running the washing machine with a cat inside would get the hair on everything.
[oiskuu]: YM, I'm interested in your questions... maybe start a a thread at polls.
