Dist::Zilla looks for per-user configuration in ~/.dzil/config.ini. This command prompts the user for some basic information that can be used to produce the most commonly needed config.ini sections.

WARNING: PAUSE account details are stored within config.ini in plain text.


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.
