Test::DistManifest provides a simple method of testing that a MANIFEST
matches the distribution. It is similar to Test::CheckManifest, but differs
in that it has native support for the MANIFEST.SKIP file.
It tests three things:
1. Everything in MANIFEST exists
2. Everything in the package is listed in MANIFEST, or subsequently matches
a regular expression mask in MANIFEST.SKIP
3. Nothing exists in MANIFEST that also matches a mask in MANIFEST.SKIP,
which is an unsatisfiable condition
Much of the functionality is provided by Module::Manifest, so developers
wishing to manipulate MANIFEST files in a similar way are encouraged to look
at that distribution.
