NAME

syntax - Activate syntax extensions  

VERSION

version 0.004  

SYNOPSIS

    # either
    use syntax 'foo';

    # or
    use syntax foo => { ... };

    # or
    use syntax qw( foo bar ), baz => { ... };

 

DESCRIPTION

This module activates community provided syntax extensions to Perl. You pass it a feature name, and optionally a scalar with arguments, and the dispatching system will load and install the extension in your package.

The import arguments are parsed with Data::OptList. There are no standardised options. Please consult the documentation for the specific syntax feature to find out about possible configuration options.

The passed in feature names are simply transformed: "function" becomes Syntax::Feature::Function and "foo_bar" would become "Syntax::Feature::FooBar".  

METHODS

 

import

    syntax->import( @spec );

This method will dispatch the syntax extension setup to the specified feature handlers for the calling package.  

import_into

    syntax->import_into( $into, @spec );

Same as ``import'', but performs the setup in $into instead of the calling package.  

unimport

    syntax->unimport( @features );

This method will trigger uninstallations of the @features from the calling package.  

unimport_from

    syntax->unimport_from( $from, @features );

Same as ``unimport'', but will uninstall the @features from $from.  

RECOMMENDED FEATURES

Syntax::Feature::Function

Activates functions with parameter signatures.

 

SEE ALSO

Syntax::Feature::Function, Devel::Declare
