NAME Dist::Zilla::App::Command::self - Build a distribution with a bootstrapped version of itself. VERSION version 0.001003 SYNOPSIS This is a different approach to using "[Bootstrap::lib]" that absolves a distribution from needing to forcibly embed bootstrapping logic in "dist.ini" dzil self build This is largely similar to using [Bootstrap::lib] try_built = 1 and doing dzil build && dzil build And similar again to: dzil run bash -c "cd ../; dzil -I$BUILDDIR/lib dzil build" Or whatever the magic is that @ETHER uses. This also means that: dzil self release Is something you can do. CAVEATS The nature of this implies that your distribution will probably need an older generation of itself for the initial bootstrap. That is to say: dzil build Must work, and use "Generation.Previous" to build "Generation.Build" dzil self foo Will call "dzil build" for you, to build "Generation.Build", and then invoke dzil foo To use "Generation.Build" to build "Generation.Next" "1. Generation.Previous" A previously installed incarnation of your dist. "2. Generation.Build" The iteration of building the distribution itself from source using "Generation.Previous" "3. Generation.Next" The iteration of building the distribution itself from source using "Generation.Build" AUTHOR Kent Fredric <firstname.lastname@example.org> COPYRIGHT AND LICENSE This software is copyright (c) 2014 by Kent Fredric <email@example.com>.
