Dist::Zilla::Plugin::InsertBlock - Insert a block of text from another file

This plugin finds
# INSERT_BLOCK: <file> <name> directives in your POD/code. It then searches for a block of text named name in file file, and inserts the content of the block to replace the directive.
A block is marked/defined using either this syntax:
# BEGIN_BLOCK: Name ... # END_BLOCK: Name
or this (for block inside POD):
=for BEGIN_BLOCK: Name ... =for END_BLOCK: Name
=over 11 workaround syntax (for blocks inside POD, in case tools like Pod::Weaver remove
=over 11 =back BEGIN_BLOCK: Name ... =over 11 =back END_BLOCK: Name
Block name is case-sensitive.
This plugin can be useful to avoid repetition/manual copy-paste, e.g. when you want to list POD attributes, methods, etc from a base class into a subclass.
# INSERT_BLOCK directive accepts an optional third argument for options. Known options:
This option pads each line of the block content with whitespace. Suitable for when you are inserting a block into a POD and you want to make the content of the block as POD verbatim.

To contribute, you can send patches by email/via RT, or send pull requests on GitHub.
Most of the time, you don't need to build the distribution yourself. You can simply modify the code, then test via:
% prove -l
If you want to build the distribution (e.g. to try to install it locally on your system), you can install Dist::Zilla, Dist::Zilla::PluginBundle::Author::PERLANCAR, and sometimes one or two other Dist::Zilla plugin and/or Pod::Weaver::Plugin. Any additional steps required beyond that are considered a bug and can be reported to me.
