NAME

abbreviation - Perl pragma to abbreviate class names

SYNOPSIS

  use abbreviation qw(Very::Long::ClassName::Here);
  
  my $obj = Very::Long::ClassName::Here->new;
  my $obj = V::L::CN::Here->new;        # same

DESCRIPTION

Tired of typing long class name? use abbreviation for that.

TRICK AND CAVEAT

Dynamic package name aliasing can be implemented via:

  • symbol table aliasing. (import.pm)

  • dynamic inheritance. (namespace.pm)

Both has virtue and vice. Currently, abbreviation.pm takes the former. This may change in the future.
