       Package::Generator - generate new packages quickly and easily

       version 0.103

	   use Package::Generator;

	   my $package = Package::Generator->new_package;

       This module lets you quickly and easily construct new packages.	It gives them unused
       names and sets up their package data, if provided.

	 my $package = Package::Generator->new_package(\%arg);

       This returns the newly generated package.  It can be called with no arguments, in which
       case it just returns the name of a pristene package.  The "base" argument can be provided
       to generate the package under an existing namespace.  A "make_unique" argument can also be
       provided; it must be a coderef which will be passed the base package name and returns a
       unique package name under the base name.

       A "data" argument may be passed as a reference to an array of pairs.  These pairs will be
       used to set up the data in the generated package.  For example, the following call will
       create a package with a $foo set to 1 and a @foo set to the first ten counting numbers.

	 my $package = Package::Generator->new_package({
	   data => [
	     foo => 1,
	     foo => [ 1 .. 10 ],

       For convenience, "isa" and "version" arguments may be passed to "new_package".  They will
       set up @ISA, $VERSION, or &VERSION, as appropriate.  If a single scalar value is passed as
       the "isa" argument, it will be used as the only value to assign to @ISA.  (That is, it
       will not cause $ISA to be assigned;  that wouldn't be very helpful.)

	 Package::Generator->assign_symbols($package, \@key_value_pairs);

       This routine is used by "new_package" to set up the data in a package.

	 ... if Package::Generator->package_exists($package);

       This method returns true if something has already created a symbol table for the named
       package.  This is equivalent to:

	 ... if defined *{$package . '::'};

       It's just a little less voodoo-y.
