Build tools chart

This page doesn't provide any contextual prose, you should refer to related_modules.md for an overview of various build tools. This page just goes over some specific technical details of each build tool.

distribution-creation side end-user install side
build tool minimum Perl version install tool minimum Perl version
Dist::Zilla v5.20.0 ? ?
Minilla v5.10.1 Module::Build::Tiny [1] v5.6.0
Dist::Milla v5.12.0 ? ?
ExtUtils::MakeMaker v5.6.0 ExtUtils::MakeMaker v5.6.0 [2]
? Module::Build v5.6.1 Module::Build? ?
Module::Install v5.6.0 Module::Install? ?
[1] Although Minilla by default uses Module::Build::Tiny, it can be configured to use Module::Build or ExtUtils::MakeMaker instead
[2] The latest version of ExtUtils::MakeMaker requires Perl 5.6.0. However, that module has been included in Perl core since Perl 5.000, so it's possible it could work with earlier Perls.
