NAME

Wasm::Hook - Automatically load WebAssembly modules without a Perl wrapper

VERSION

version 0.21

SYNOPSIS

 use Wasm::Hook;
 use Foo::Bar;  # will load Foo/Bar.wasm or Foo/Bar.wat if no Foo/Bar.pm is found
 no Wasm::Hook; # turns off automatic wasm / wat loading

DESCRIPTION

WARNING: WebAssembly and Wasmtime are a moving target and the interface for these modules is under active development. Use with caution.

This module installs an @INC hook that automatically loads WebAssembly (Wasm) files so that they can be used like a Perl module, without:

  • Having to write a boilerplate .pm file that loads the WebAssembly

  • The caller needing to even know or care that the module is implemented in something other than Perl.

This module will only load a WebAssembly module if there is no Perl Module (.pm file) with the appropriate name.

SEE ALSO

Wasm
Wasm::Wasmtime

The functions inside the WebAssembly module are exportable via the Exporter module. @EXPORT_OK is used, so you will need to explicitly export functions.
