Exporter::Tiny

NAME

Exporter::Tiny − an exporter with the features of Sub::Exporter but only core dependencies

SYNOPSIS

package MyUtils;
use base "Exporter::Tiny";
our @EXPORT = qw(frobnicate);
sub frobnicate { ... }
1;
package MyScript;
use MyUtils "frobnicate" => { −as => "frob" };
print frob(42);
exit;

DESCRIPTION

Exporter::Tiny supports many of Sub::Exporter’s external-facing features including renaming imported functions with the "−as", "−prefix" and "−suffix" options; explicit destinations with the "into" option; and alternative installers with the "installer" option. But it’s written in only about 40% as many lines of code and with zero non-core dependencies.

Its internal-facing interface is closer to Exporter.pm, with configuration done through the @EXPORT, @EXPORT_OK and %EXPORT_TAGS package variables.
