DESCRIPTION

Starting with perl v5.11.0, modules that once were Perl core or dual-life modules could be deprecated and eventually removed from standard perl5 distributions, to become CPAN-only modules.

Bundle::ExCore is for you if you want to re-install most of those from CPAN with a single step. It can also be useful to upgrade them to their latest stable releases to get rid of deprecation warnings.

If your code depends on one of these modules, you should still make sure it is properly listed as a prerequisite, though. Do not just install Bundle::ExCore and ignore the issue.

Some modules have been deprecated and removed from their CPAN distributions after being removed from core. Installing one of those would require an older version of the distribution rather than the latest stable one. Bundle::ExCore tries not to force you into this, as it is intended to give back useful stuff dropped from the core rather than standing in the way of progress. This is why Bundle::ExCore contains generally only main modules of CPAN distributions. What is still present in the distribution at the time of the upgrade will be pulled in as well, but abandoned modules will not.

If one of the distributions of bundled modules is split into different parts, Bundle::ExCore has to be updated to include a module of each of the new parts containing former core stuff.
