NAME
syntax - Activate syntax extensions VERSION
version 0.004 SYNOPSIS
# either use syntax 'foo'; # or use syntax foo => { ... }; # or use syntax qw( foo bar ), baz => { ... }; DESCRIPTION
This module activates community provided syntax extensions to Perl. You pass it a feature name, and optionally a scalar with arguments, and the dispatching system will load and install the extension in your package. The import arguments are parsed with Data::OptList. There are no standardised options. Please consult the documentation for the specific syntax feature to find out about possible configuration options. The passed in feature names are simply transformed: "function" becomes Syntax::Feature::Function and "foo_bar" would become "Syntax::Feature::FooBar". METHODS
import syntax->import( @spec ); This method will dispatch the syntax extension setup to the specified feature handlers for the calling package. import_into syntax->import_into( $into, @spec ); Same as "import", but performs the setup in $into instead of the calling package. unimport syntax->unimport( @features ); This method will trigger uninstallations of the @features from the calling package. unimport_from syntax->unimport_from( $from, @features ); Same as "unimport", but will uninstall the @features from $from. RECOMMENDED FEATURES
o Syntax::Feature::Function Activates functions with parameter signatures. SEE ALSO

CPAN::Meta::Feature(3)					User Contributed Perl Documentation				    CPAN::Meta::Feature(3)

NAME
CPAN::Meta::Feature - an optional feature provided by a CPAN distribution VERSION
version 2.133380 DESCRIPTION
A CPAN::Meta::Feature object describes an optional feature offered by a CPAN distribution and specified in the distribution's META.json (or META.yml) file. For the most part, this class will only be used when operating on the result of the "feature" or "features" methods on a CPAN::Meta object. METHODS
new my $feature = CPAN::Meta::Feature->new( $identifier => \%spec ); This returns a new Feature object. The %spec argument to the constructor should be the same as the value of the "optional_feature" entry in the distmeta. It must contain entries for "description" and "prereqs". identifier This method returns the feature's identifier. description This method returns the feature's long description. prereqs This method returns the feature's prerequisites as a CPAN::Meta::Prereqs object. BUGS
Please report any bugs or feature using the CPAN Request Tracker. Bugs can be submitted through the web interface at <http://rt.cpan.org/Dist/Display.html?Queue=CPAN-Meta> When submitting a bug or request, please include a test-file or a patch to an existing test-file that illustrates the bug or desired feature.
