import This is the import module for perl, which imports all modules with the same package prefix, aliasing it away. 'import' acts as a pragma that performs a 'use' on all modules that can be found with the given package prefix. Any modules found have a 'use' statement performed, and the fully qualified package name is aliased to one without the given prefix. The functionality is similar to Java's 'import' statement. Michael King To see the latest changes to the module, see the 'Changes' file. To see how you can help make this a better module, see the 'TODO' file. To see any special installation notes, see the 'INSTALL' file. To install these modules, cd to the directory that this README file is in and type the following: perl Makefile.PL make make install Documentation for these modules is part of the files themselves using the pod (Plain Old Documentation) format, and can be read using the perldoc program that comes with perl. To manually convert them into manual page format, type something like the following: pod2man import.pod > import.man To manually convert them into HTML format, type: pod2html import.pm (pod2html creates an HTML file named import.pm.html) Online documentation of these modules can be found at: http://walden.mo.net/~mike808/import_pm First released to CPAN: Sun Oct 10 22:59:23 CDT 1999 Michael King <firstname.lastname@example.org> http://walden.mo.net/~mike808 Please send any reports of problems or bugs to email@example.com. I wouldn't mind a short note to know that you're using this. Suggestions and knowing how many others are using this will help promote its upkeep.
