       Dist::Zilla::App::Command::build - build your dist


       version 6.012


         dzil build [ --trial ] [ --tgz | --no-tgz ] [ --in /path/to/build/dir ]


       This command is a very thin layer over the Dist::Zilla "build" method, which does all the
       things required to build your distribution.  By default, it will also archive your
       distribution and leave you with a complete, ready-to-release distribution tarball.

       To go a bit further in depth, the "build" command will do two things:

       ·   Generate a directory containing your module, "Foo-0.100". This directory is complete.
           You could create a gzipped tarball from this directory and upload it directly to
           "PAUSE" if you so desired. You could "cd" into this directory and test your module on
           Perl installations where you don't have "Dist::Zilla", for example.

           This is a default behavior of the "build" command. You can alter where it puts the
           directory with "--in /path/to/build/dir".

       ·   Generate a gzipped tarball of your module, "Foo-0.100.tar.gz". This file could be
           uploaded directly to "PAUSE" to make a release of your module if you wanted. Or, you
           can test your module: "cpanm --test-only Foo-0.100.tar.gz".  This is the same thing
           you would get if you compressed the directory described above.

           The gzipped tarball is generated by default, but if you don't want it to be generated,
           you can pass the "--no-tgz" option. In that case, it would only generate the directory
           described above.

       Once you're done testing or publishing your build, you can clean up everything with a
       "dzil clean".


         $ dzil build
         $ dzil build --no-tgz
         $ dzil build --in /path/to/build/dir


       This will build a trial distribution.  Among other things, it will generally mean that the
       built tarball's basename ends in -TRIAL.

   --tgz | --no-tgz
       Builds a .tar.gz in your project directory after building the distribution.

       --tgz behaviour is by default, use --no-tgz to disable building an archive.

       Specifies the directory into which the distribution should be built.  If necessary, the
       directory will be created.  An archive will not be created.
