NAME

Canary::Stability - canary to check perl compatibility for schmorp's modules

SYNOPSIS

 # in Makefile.PL
 use Canary::Stability DISTNAME => 2001, MINIMUM_PERL_VERSION;

DESCRIPTION

This module is used by Schmorp's modules during configuration stage to test the installed perl for compatibility with his modules.
It's not, at this stage, meant as a tool for other module authors, although in principle nothing prevents them from subscribing to the same ideas.
See the Makefile.PL in Coro or AnyEvent for usage examples.
