The command itself doesn't, but builds in Zig are expressed declaratively (by creating a build definition) and you can override the build runner. This way you could write a "gather info" runner that doesn't actually run the build commands but just outputs a serialized version of the build pipeline.

I don't have first hand experience doing that so you might want to talk with meghan and matt about this (the authors of zigmod and gyro, respectively).

I originally started with Zig Discord where I've been told my only option was to parse the build code and interpret it, so I lost any interest pretty quickly, but if it's possible to tweak it's behaviour on the fly by overriding runner I might give it a second look, thank you!

Uh, if that's the case I'm sorry, you got bad information.
