NAME

Exporter::Tiny - an exporter with the features of Sub::Exporter but only core dependencies  

SYNOPSIS

   package MyUtils;
   use base "Exporter::Tiny";
   our @EXPORT = qw(frobnicate);
   sub frobnicate { ... }
   1;

   package MyScript;
   use MyUtils "frobnicate" => { -as => "frob" };
   print frob(42);
   exit;

 

DESCRIPTION

Exporter::Tiny supports many of Sub::Exporter's external-facing features including renaming imported functions with the "-as", "-prefix" and "-suffix" options; explicit destinations with the "into" option; and alternative installers with the "installer" option. But it's written in only about 40% as many lines of code and with zero non-core dependencies.

Its internal-facing interface is closer to Exporter.pm, with configuration done through the @EXPORT, @EXPORT_OK and %EXPORT_TAGS package variables.
