Bug#153146: ITP: libexporter-lite-perl -- Lightweight subset of Exporter

Package: wnpp
Version: N/A; reported 2002-07-16
Severity: wishlist

* Package name    : libexporter-lite-perl
  Version         : 0.01
  Upstream Author : Michael G Schwern <schwern@pobox.com>.

  Description     : Lightweight subset of Exporter
   This is an alternative to Exporter intended to provide a lightweight
   subset of its functionality.  It supports import(), @EXPORT and
   @EXPORT_OK and not a whole lot else.
   Unlike Exporter, it is not necessary to inherit from Exporter::Lite
   (ie. no @ISA = qw(Exporter::Lite) mantra).  Exporter::Lite simply
   exports its import() function.  This might be called a "mix-in".
   Setting up a module to export its variables and functions is simple:
   package My::Module;
   use Exporter::Lite;
   @EXPORT = qw($Foo bar);

This is needed by libuniversal-exports-perl which I will ITP in a minute.
