Dist::Zilla::Plugin::DualBuilders - Allows use of Module::Build and ExtUtils::MakeMaker in a dzil dist


  This document describes v1.000 of Dist::Zilla::Plugin::DualBuilders - released December 13, 2010 as part of Dist-Zilla-Plugin-DualBuilders.


This plugin allows you to specify ModuleBuild and MakeMaker in your Dist::Zilla dist.ini and select only one as your prereq. Normally, if this plugin is not loaded you will end up with both in your prereq list and this is obviously not what you want!

        # In your dist.ini:
        [MakeMaker] ; or [MakeMaker::Awesome], will work too :)
        [DualBuilders] ; needs to be specified *AFTER* the builders



Sets your preferred builder. This builder will be the one added to the prereqs. Valid options are: "make" or "build".

The default is: build
