Dist::Zilla::Role::InstallTool(3pm) User Contributed Perl Documentation Dist::Zilla::Role::InstallTool(3pm)


Dist::Zilla::Role::InstallTool - something that creates an install program for a dist


version 6.032


Plugins implementing InstallTool have their "setup_installer" method called to inject files after all other file injection and munging has taken place. They're expected to produce files needed to make the distribution installable, like Makefile.PL or Build.PL and add them with the "add_file" method provided by Dist::Zilla::Role::FileInjector, which is also composed by this role.


This module should work on any version of perl still receiving updates from the Perl 5 Porters. This means it should work on any version of perl released in the last two to three years. (That is, if the most recently released version is v5.40, then this module should work on both v5.40 and v5.38.)

Although it may work on older versions of perl, no guarantee is made that the minimum required version will not be increased. The version may be increased for any reason, and there is no promise that patches will be accepted to lower the minimum required perl.
