cpanfile: require Try::Tiny

Marek Szuba requested to merge bugfix/cpanfile_try-tiny into master

Created by: mkszuba


Add Try::Tiny to the cpanfile.

Use case

It is used by Bio::EnsEMBL::Feature and it is not a core module. The reason Travis has not caught it seems to be that it comes with the Perl installations they provide.


Bio::EnsEMBL::Feature will not throw 'Cannot locate Try::Tiny' exceptions even on systems with minimal Perl installations.

Possible Drawbacks



Have you added/modified unit tests to test the changes?


If so, do the tests pass/fail?


Have you run the entire test suite and no regression was detected?

Yes, on a system with highly minimal Perl installation (an official perl-5.14 image from Docker Hub). No regression detected.
