Dist::Zilla::Plugin::CopyFilesFromBuild::Filtered - Copy files from build directory, but filter out lines
copy = Makefile.PL
copy = whatever.txt
filter = #.*whatever.*
This module copies files from the build directory to the source directory, but filters out lines from the copied file. It is designed in particular for generated *.PL files, which often have unwanted "generated by" comments that cause unwanted file churn under source control.
Specifies files to be copied from the build directory back to the distribution source. May be given multiple times.
A regular expression given as string. Any matching lines in copied files will be filtered out of the copy. It will be applied as follows:
Thus, it is anchored at the start of a line to the newline at the end.
The default matches a comment with "generated by" as found in typical generated *.PL files: #.*generated by.*
