Scalar::Does - like ref() but useful River stage two • 14 direct dependents • 52 total dependents

It has long been noted that Perl would benefit from a "does()" built-in. A check that "ref($thing) eq 'ARRAY'" doesn't allow you to accept an object that uses overloading to provide an array-like interface. Functions "does($scalar, $role)" Checks if ...

Fixed - a readonly variable that you can assign to River stage zero No dependents

"Fixed" is a little like Readonly; the main difference is that you can assign to fixed variables. What?! Then how are they fixed? Because you can only assign to them once! use 5.012; use strict; use warnings; use Fixed; fix $x; # declared but not ini...

Scalar::Util - A selection of general-utility scalar subroutines River stage five • 3682 direct dependents • 30209 total dependents

"Scalar::Util" contains a selection of subroutines that people have expressed would be nice to have in the perl core, but the usage would not really be high enough to warrant the use of a keyword, and the size would be so small that being individual ...

Scalar::Number - numeric aspects of scalars River stage zero No dependents

This module is about the numeric part of plain (string) Perl scalars. A scalar has a numeric value, which may be expressed in either the native integer type or the native floating point type. Many values are expressible both ways, in which case the e...

File::chdir - a more sensible way to change directories River stage four • 158 direct dependents • 2400 total dependents

Perl's "chdir()" has the unfortunate problem of being very, very, very global. If any part of your program calls "chdir()" or if any library you use calls "chdir()", it changes the current working directory for the *whole* program. This sucks. File::...
