Dist::Zilla::Util(3pm) User Contributed Perl Documentation Dist::Zilla::Util(3pm)

NAME

Dist::Zilla::Util - random snippets of code that Dist::Zilla wants

VERSION

version 6.024

PERL VERSION

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.

METHODS

abstract_from_file

This method, which is likely to change or go away, tries to guess the abstract of a given file, assuming that it's Perl code. It looks for a POD "=head1" section called "NAME" or a comment beginning with "ABSTRACT:".

expand_config_package_name

  my $pkg_name = Dist::Zilla::Util->expand_config_package_name($string);

This method, which is likely to change or go away, rewrites the given string into a package name.

Prefixes are rewritten as follows:

  • "=" becomes nothing
  • "@" becomes "Dist::Zilla::PluginBundle::"
  • "%" becomes "Dist::Zilla::Stash::"
  • otherwise, "Dist::Zilla::Plugin::" is prepended
