=head1 NAME

ExtUtils::Config - A wrapper for perl's configuration

=head1 VERSION

version 0.008

=head1 SYNOPSIS

 my $config = ExtUtils::Config->new();
 $config->get('installsitelib');

=head1 DESCRIPTION

ExtUtils::Config is an abstraction around the %Config hash. By itself it is not a particularly interesting module by any measure, however it ties together a family of modern toolchain modules.

=head1 METHODS

=head2 new(\%config)

Create a new ExtUtils::Config object. The values in C<\%config> are used to initialize the object.

=head2 get($key)

Get the value of C<$key>. If not overridden it will return the value in %Config.

=head2 exists($key)

Tests for the existence of $key.

=head2 values_set()

Get a hashref of all overridden values.

=head2 all_config()

Get a hashref of the complete configuration, including overrides.

=head2 serialize()

This method serializes the object to some kind of string.
