Symbol::Move - Move or rename symbols at compile time.
This package allows you to make move symbols in the current package, between the current package and other packages, or between any arbitrary packages.
'foo' => 'bar', # Move the sub foo in the current package to the name bar.
'%A::B::foo' => 'bar', # Move the %A::B::foo hash to the %bar symbol in the current package.
'@foo' => 'A::B::bar', # Move the @foo array in the current package to the @A::B::bar symbol.
use Symbol::Move $SYMBOL => $NEW_NAME, ...;
$SYMBOL must be a string identifying the symbol. The symbol string must include the sigil unless it is a subroutine. You can provide a fully qualified symbol name, or it will be assumed the symbol is in $PACKAGE.
$NEW_NAME must be a string identifying the symbol. The string may include a symbol, or the sigil from the $SYMBOL string will be used. The string can be a fully qualified symbol name, or it will be assumed that the new name is in $PACKAGE.
use Some::Exporter qw/xyz/;
use Symbol::Move '&Foo::Scratch::xyz' => 'my_xyz';
my_xyz(' => 'my_xyz';
Symbol::Alias Allows you to set up aliases within a package at compile-time.
Symbol::Delete Allows you to remove symbols from a package at compile time.
Symbol::Extract Allows you to extract symbols from packages and into variables at compile time.
