Subject: require a module LESS THAN a certain version
Download (untitled) / with headers

It would be *really nice* if it were possible to specify a prerequisite module not to exceed a certain version. For example, with ActivePerl build 820 on MSWin32, Compress::Zlib 2.001 is "broken" because of some weird interaction with Scalar::Util, but Compress::Zlib 1.42 works fine. I would like to specify "requires Compress::Zlib < 2.0" in my Makefile.PL -- - - Martin 'Kingpin' Thurn

Unfortunately, I am limited by the underlying MakeMaker implementation, which does not support this.
