Dist::Zilla::Plugin::CopyFilesFromBuild - Copy (or move) specific files after building (for SCM inclusion, etc.)
In your dist.ini:
copy = README
move = README.pod
copy = Makefile.PL
This plugin will automatically copy the files that you specify in dist.ini from the build directory into the distribution directoory. This is so you can commit them to version control.
If you want to put a build-generated file in version control but you don't want it to remain in the build dir, use move instead of copy. When you use move, the MANIFEST file will be updated if it exists, and the moved files will be pruned from their former location.
This plugin is based on CopyReadmeFromBuild. I wrote it because that plugin was copying the wrong README file (README instead of README.mkdn or README.pod), and it could not be configured to do otherwise. So I wrote my own module that copies exactly the files that I specify.
I added the move functionality because I wanted to generate a README.pod file for Github, but MakeMaker wanted to also install the README.pod file as part of the distribution. So I made it possible to take a file generated during the build and move it out of the build directory, so that it would not be included in the distribution.
Please report any bugs or feature requests to email@example.com.
