do CPAN authors know the minimum perl required for their modules?

I would hope so. But what they might not know is the minimum Perl version for all of their prerequisite modules. But if each module knows a) its minimum version and b) all of its prereqs, then something like CPANPLUS (or, perhaps, CPANTS) could walk the tree and tell you if one of your prereqs needs a more recent version that the one that your are currently reporting.

What about old modules such as Net::Telnet will anyone release a new version of it just to include the META.yml

Maybe if it became a kwalitee measure :-)

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
