Owner: Niko Tyni <ntyni@iki.fi>

* Package name    : libsmart-comments-perl
  Version         : 1.0.2
  Upstream Author : Damian Conway <DCONWAY@cpan.org>
* URL             : http://mirrors.kernel.org/CPAN/modules/by-authors/id/DCONWAY/Smart-Comments-v1.0.2.tar.gz

  Description     : comments that do more than just sit there

 Smart comments provide an easy way to insert debugging and tracking code
 into a program. They can report the value of a variable, track the
 progress of a loop, and verify that particular assertions are true.
 Best of all, when you're finished debugging, you don't have to remove them.
 Simply commenting out the "use Smart::Comments" line turns them back into
 regular comments. Leaving smart comments in your code is smart because if you
 needed them once, you'll almost certainly need them again later.
