Dist::Zilla::Plugin::PkgVersion - add a $VERSION to your packages
This plugin will add lines like the following to each package in each Perl module or program (more or less) within the distribution:
$MyModule::VERSION = 0.001;
...where 0.001 is the version of the dist, and MyModule is the name of the package being given a version. (In other words, it always uses fully-qualified names to assign versions.)
It will skip any package declaration that includes a newline between the
package keyword and the package name, like:
This sort of declaration is also ignored by the CPAN toolchain, and is typically used when doing monkey patching or other tricky things.
If true, then when PkgVersion sees an existing
$VERSION assignment, it will throw an exception rather than skip the file. This attribute defaults to false.
By default, PkgVersion look for a blank line after each
package statement. If it finds one, it inserts the
$VERSION assignment on that line. If it doesn't, it will insert a new line, which means the shipped copy of the module will have different line numbers (off by one) than the source. If
die_on_line_insertion is true, PkgVersion will raise an exception rather than insert a new line.
This is the name of a FileFinder for finding modules to edit. The default value is
:ExecFiles; this option can be used more than once.
Other predefined finders are listed in "default_finders" in Dist::Zilla::Role::FileFinderUser. You can define your own with the [FileFinder::ByName] and [FileFinder::Filter] plugins.
Other Dist::Zilla plugins: OurPkgVersion inserts version numbers using
our $VERSION = '...'; and without changing line numbers
