perldist_w is the command line front-end to the Perl::Dist::WiX Win32 Perl distribution builder.
It takes arguments, burns CPU for an hour or more, and then spits out a distribution package.
The argument is the class name for the distribution. This will be a subclass of Perl::Dist::WiX that provides configuration information and scripts the installation sequence.
If you are building a "Perl::Dist::Distribution" class, you can drop the "Perl::Dist::" as a convenience.
And that's about all there is to it.
For more information, see Perl::Dist::WiX.
