=head1 NAME

Dist::Zilla::Role::ArchiveBuilder - something that builds archives

=head1 VERSION

version 6.024

=head1 DESCRIPTION

Plugins implementing this role have their C<build_archive> method called
when it is time to build the archive.

=head1 PERL VERSION

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.

=head1 METHODS

=head2 build_archive

This method takes three arguments, and returns a L<Path::Tiny> instance
containing the path to the archive.

=over 4

=item archive_basename

This is the name of the archive (including C<-TRIAL> if appropriate) without
the format extension (that is the C<.tar.gz> part).  The plugin implementing
this role should add the appropriate full path including extension as the
returned L<Path::Tiny> instance.  Not including the extension allows the
plugin to choose its own format.

=item built_in

This is a L<Path::Tiny> where the distribution has been built.

=item dist_basename

This method will return the dist's basename (e.g. C<Dist-Name-1.01> as a
L<Path::Tiny>.  The basename is used as the top-level directory in the
tarball.  It does not include C<-TRIAL>, even if building a trial dist.
