NAME

syntax - Activate syntax extensions

CONTENTS

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

o Syntax::Feature::Function

Activates functions with parameter signatures.

SEE ALSO

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