use Symbol::Alias( 'foo' => 'bar', # Alias the sub foo in the current package to the name bar. '%A::B::foo' => 'bar', # Alias the %A::B::foo hash to the %bar symbol in the current package. '@foo' => 'A::B::bar', # Alias the @foo array in the current package to the @A::B::bar symbol. );
use Symbol::Alias $SYMBOL => $NEW_NAME, ...;
