in thread Do Pure Perl CPAN packages really need to use ExtUtils::Command::MM?

it works fine on perl 5.005 if you can install a few additional modules
If that is the case, then why does Module::Build require a Perl of at least 5.6.1? The Changes file says that requirement was added in 2008.

    I couldn't find a 'require version' or 'use version' line in the source code of Module::Build. There is only that single line in the changelog. You might ask schwern about it or send the maintainers a bug report. The documentation only says that since 5.6.0 all prerequisites are included in core, but works fine on 5.005.

    Anyway, does that change much? Companies that still use a pre-5.6.0 versions are usually so conservative that they don't allow any modules from CPAN anyway

      Look at the first line of Module::Build's Build.PL or Makefile.PL.
