  • What is difference between 'install_requires' and 'configure_requires'? Isn't 'configure_requires', 'test_requires' and 'requires' enough to represent all possible dependencies?

    • No. The kinds of dependencies you list are determined dynamically by executing Makefile.PL or Build.PL. The meaning of configure_requires is that this is what’s required to successfully run Makefile.PL or Build.PL in the first place. In other words, without the configure_requires dependency installed you cannot even determine the rest of them.
