The London Perl and Raku Workshop takes place on 26th Oct 2024. If your company depends on Perl, please consider sponsoring and/or attending.




    use Acme::ManekiNeko; # This will make your Perl programs a lot more lucky.


The fine CPAN testing people failed this module because it uses 'our', so it now requires 5.6 Perl, so if you can use this you really are more likely to have your program run to completion, honest guv (no warranty!).


"According to ancient legend, this cat stood in the doorway of the Gotoku-ji temple and raised her paw in the traditional Japanese beckoning gesture to a feudal lord who was passing by. The feudal lord followed the cat into the temple and instantly, a lightning bolt struck the place where the lord had been standing. Thus the cat had saved his life. From then on, the Maneki Neko has been considered an incarnation of the Goddess of Mercy."

Now your Perl programs can also benefit from good fortune by using this module which invokes the image of Maneki Neko giving your code luck.
