Dist::Zilla::Role::FileGatherer - something that gathers files into the distribution


version 6.031


A FileGatherer plugin is a special sort of FileInjector that runs early in the build cycle, finding files to include in the distribution. It is expected to call its add_file method to add one or more files to inclusion.

Plugins implementing FileGatherer must provide a gather_files method, which will be called during the build process.


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.
