I think if your tests are inapplicable, the best approach is to bail out from Makefile.PL with an exit code of 1 and the message "BAIL OUT!" (or something like that) on STDERR. Maybe it's also enough to just not create a Makefile. Have a look around at other modules that are OS-specific. For Win32::Wlan, I use the following boilerplate code in the tests skip all the tests unless they are applicable:

#perl -w use strict; use Test::More; BEGIN { if ($^O !~ /Win32/i) { plan skip_all => "Win32::Wlan only works on Win32"; } else { plan tests => 1; } }; ...

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
