=head1 NAME

Modern::Perl - enable all of the features of Modern Perl with one import

=head1 VERSION

version 1.20200211


Modern Perl programs use several modules to enable additional features of Perl
and of the CPAN.  Instead of copying and pasting all of these C<use> lines,
instead write only one:

    use Modern::Perl;

This enables the L<strict> and L<warnings> pragmas, as well as all of the
features available in Perl 5.10. It also enables C3 method resolution order as
documented in C<perldoc mro> and loads L<IO::File> and L<IO::Handle> so that
you may call methods on filehandles. In the future, it may include additional
core modules and pragmas (but is unlikely to include non-core features).

Because so much of this module's behavior uses lexically scoped pragmas, you
may disable these pragmas within an inner scope with:

    no Modern::Perl;

See L<> for
more information, L<> for further discussion of
Modern Perl and its implications, and
L<> for a freely-downloadable
Modern Perl tutorial.

=head2 CLI Usage

As of Modern::Perl 2019, you may also enable this pragma from the command line:

    $ perl -Modern::Perl -e 'say "Take that, awk!"'

You may also enable year-specific features:

    $ perl -Modern::Perl=2020 -e 'say "Looking forward to Perl 5.30!"'

=head2 Wrapping Modern::Perl

If you want to wrap Modern::Perl in your own C<import()> method, you can do so
to add additional pragmas or features, such as the use of L<Try::Tiny>. Please
note that, if you do so, you will I<not> automatically enable C3 method
resolution in the calling scope. This is due to how the L<mro> pragma works. In
your custom C<import()> method, you will need to write code such as:

    mro::set_mro( scalar caller(), 'c3' );

=head2 Forward Compatibility

For forward compatibility, I recommend you specify a string containing a
I<year> value as the single optional import tag. For example:

    use Modern::Perl '2009';
    use Modern::Perl '2010';

... both enable 5.10 features, while:

    use Modern::Perl '2011';

... enables 5.12 features:

    use Modern::Perl '2012';

... enables 5.14 features:

    use Modern::Perl '2013';

... enables 5.16 features, and:

    use Modern::Perl '2014';

... enables 5.18 features, and:

    use Modern::Perl '2015';

... enables 5.20 features, and:

    use Modern::Perl '2016';

... enables 5.24 features, and:

    use Modern::Perl '2017';

... enables 5.24 features, and:

    use Modern::Perl '2018';

... enables 5.26 features.

Obviously you cannot use newer features on earlier
versions. Perl will throw the appropriate exception if you try.
