Dist::Zilla::Plugin::FileFinder::ByName(3) FileFinder matching on pathnames


version 4.300020


In your dist.ini:

[FileFinder::ByName / MyFiles]
dir = bin ; look in the bin/ directory
dir = lib ; and the lib/ directory
file = *.pl ; for .pl files
match = \.pm$ ; and for .pm files
skip = ignore ; that don't have "ignore" in the path


FileFinder::ByName is a FileFinder that selects files by matching the criteria you specify against the pathname.

There are three types of criteria you can use. "dir" limits the search to a particular directory. "match" is a regular expression that must match the pathname. "skip" is a regular expression that must not match the pathname.

Each key can be specified multiple times. Multiple occurrences of the same key are ORed together. Different keys are ANDed together. That means that to be selected, a file must be located in one of the "dir"s, must match one of the "match" regexs, and must not match any of the "skip" regexs.

Note that "file" and "match" are considered to be the same key. They're just different ways to write a regex that the pathname must match.

Omitting a particular key means that criterion will not apply to the search. Omitting all keys will select every file in your dist.

Note: If you need to OR different types of criteria, then use more than one instance of FileFinder::ByName. A FileFinderUser should allow you to specify more than one FileFinder to use.



The file must be located in one of the specified directories (relative to the root directory of the dist).


The filename must match one of the specified patterns (which are converted to regexs using Text::Glob and combined with any "match" rules).


The pathname must match one of these regular expressions.


The pathname must not match any of these regular expressions.
