Dist::Zilla::Plugin::PodVersion - add a VERSION head1 to each Perl document


version 6.030


This plugin adds a =head1 VERSION section to most perl files in the distribution, indicating the version of the dist being built. This section is added after =head1 NAME. If there is no such section, the version section will not be added.

Note that this plugin is not useful if you are using the [PodWeaver] plugin, as it also adds a =head1 VERSION section (via the [Version] section).


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.


Core Dist::Zilla plugins: PkgVersion, AutoVersion, NextRelease.
