syntax - Activate syntax extensions

version 0.004

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

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".

    syntax->import( @spec );
This method will dispatch the syntax extension setup to the specified feature handlers for the calling package.

    syntax->import_into( $into, @spec );
Same as "import", but performs the setup in $into instead of the calling package.

    syntax->unimport( @features );
This method will trigger uninstallations of the @features from the calling package.

    syntax->unimport_from( $from, @features );
Same as "unimport", but will uninstall the @features from $from.

Activates functions with parameter signatures.

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