./devel/p5-UNIVERSAL-require, Perl module to require() from a variable

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]


Branch: CURRENT, Version: 0.19nb1, Package name: p5-UNIVERSAL-require-0.19nb1, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

UNIVERSAL::require - require() modules from a variable.

If you've ever had to do this...

eval "require $module";

to get around the bareword caveats on require(), this module is for
you. It creates a universal require() class method that will work with
every Perl module and its secure. So instead of doing some arcane
eval() work, you can do this:

$module->require;

It doesn't save you much typing, but it'll make alot more sense to
someone who's not a ninth level Perl acolyte.

Log message:
Update packages using a search.cpan.org HOMEPAGE to metacpan.org.

The former now redirects to the latter.

This covers the most simple cases where http://search.cpan.org/dist/name
can be changed to https://metacpan.org/release/name.

Reviewed by hand to hopefully make sure no unwanted changes sneak in.
