Description Richard Kennedy 2015-01-17 13:34:14 UTC
Description of problem:
perl reports a missing dependency with 'use autodie qw(:all)'

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
perl-autodie.noarch 2.25-2.fc21

How reproducible:
When test compiling a perl program containing

use autodie qw(:all);

perl reports a missing dependency :-

perl -c
IPC::System::Simple required for Fatalised/autodying system() at line 5.

Therefore the perl-autodie package needs a dependency to Perl-IPC-System-Simple so that it gets installed as well and then developers can make full use of autodie without any extra effort.

Additional info:

Comment 1 Petr Pisar 2015-01-19 09:15:28 UTC
autodie(3pm) documents that it's an optional dependency:

    A plain "use autodie" implies "use autodie qw(:default)". Note that
    "system" and "exec" are not enabled by default. "system" requires the
    optional IPC::System::Simple module to be installed, and enabling "system"
    or "exec" will invalidate their exotic forms. See "BUGS" below for more

I can make it a dependency on the RPM level, but then there will be people complaining about bloating dependencies. Until Fedora blesses soft dependencies, no solution will fit to all.
