How can I test your recommendation without setting up my own CPAN test bed without LWP::Protocol::https?

As it stands, I encountered an obstacle right away. There is no defined $LWP::Protocol::https::VERSION. Under these circumstances, will the requirements test fail regardless of how I specify that module in Makefile.PL? I hate to ask, but since I don't know how to test it, is your answer a guess, or are you confident it will solve my problem?

Thanks again! -Jim

    You may or may not be interested in Test::Without::Module, or the younger and more maintained implementations whose names escape me.

    If you don't want to (or as in your case, can't) specify a version in your prerequisite, you can always use 0 or undef in place of the version number.

    If you doubt my recommendation, I recommend to just use it and watch how the CPAN testers behave. There is no fee involved, and they won't send you angry mails about breaking your prerequisites either.
