  Description     : Load modules and create objects on demand for perl

Certain applications like to defer the decision to use a particular module till runtime. This is possible in 
perl, and is a useful trick in situations where the type of data is not known at compile time and the application 
doesn't wish to pre-compile modules to handle all types of data it can work with. Loading modules at runtime can 
also provide flexible interfaces for perl modules. Modules can let the programmer decide what modules will be 
used by it instead of hard-coding their names.

Class::Loader is an inheritable class that provides a method, _load(), to load a module from disk and construct 
an object by calling its constructor. It also provides a way to map modules names and associated metadata with 
symbolic names that can be used in place of module names at _load().
