Dist::Zilla::Plugin::ModuleIncluder - explicitly include modules into a distribution


version 0.008


In dist.ini:

 module = Foo
 module = Bar
 background_perl = 5.008001 #default value
 only_deps = 0 #default
 include_dependencies = 1 #default


This module allows you to explicitly include a module and its dependencies in inc/. At least one module must be given.

  • module

    Add a module to be included. This option can be given more than once.

  • background_perl

    Set the background perl version. If the (appropriate version of the) module was present in that release of perl, it will be omitted from inc. It defaults to 5.8.1.

  • only_deps

    Do not include the specified modules, only their dependencies. Note that it still includes the module if something else depends on it.

  • blacklist

    The name of a module to never include. This option can be given more than once.
