Subject: IO::File dependency could be reduced to 1.09
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 713b
Today I observed that IO::File is only used in the test suite of Test::Class, and that all these uses pass with an older version. I tested with 1.09. Lowering the required version in Build.PL may make Test::Class accessible to more cases. For me, I noticed that IO::File has an XS component, and I wanted to use Test::Class in a project where we check our CPAN modules into source control, and then use them across multiple architectures. So, XS modules that are compiled for each platform are a headache, and are nice to avoiding adding and installing them if necessary. Since Test::Class doesn't actually need IO::File to run, it would be nice to depend on as old a version as possible. Thanks! Mark
A rather belated "Good point" :-) Fixed in 0.31 - on its way to CPAN now. Adrian
