AppVeyor combined Linux and Windows Perl module testing

AppVeyor is starting to support Ubuntu builds so I’m playing with some configurations for that by adjusting the pure Windows config I wrote about earlier.

There are a few things to note:

  • Commands that start with sh: are for the Linux side. Those with cmd: (or ps:) are for the Windows side. Everything else is for both sides.
  • I set a PERL5LIB environment variable. I’d rather not do that but without sudo there’s a private module directory. I could install with sudo but that’s a unix thing the Windows side would need to avoid. Maybe I’ll still do that.
  • Previously I was caching the results of the install phase but I haven’t figured out why AppVeyor no longer likes that. It makes for longer builds.
