Resources-1.03 =============== INTRODUCTION Resources.pm is Perl package used to specify configuration (defaults, ...) parameters for Perl applications, pretty much in the same way as XWindows does. It implements dynamical inheritance of defaults (both values and names) through subclassing, parameter loading from files, runtime parameter viewing and editing. The package contains an extensive documentation in POD format, to which you are kindly referred. SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS The package has been succesfully tested with both perl-5.002_01 and perl-5.001. It will not work at all with perl4. INSTALLATION To install in your standard site_local perl lib tree, just do the following % tar zxvf Resources-1.02.tar.gz % cd Resources-1.02 % perl Makefile.PL % make test % make install See the ExtUtils::MakeMaker manpage for custom installation. BUG REPORTS The package is currently in beta version.
