Description : Perl module for polymorphic data cloning
Data::Clone does data cloning, i.e. copies things recursively. This is smart
so that it works with not only non-blessed references, but also with blessed
references (i.e. objects). When clone() finds an object, it calls a clone
method of the object if the object has a clone, otherwise it makes a surface
copy of the object. That is, this module does polymorphic data cloning.
Although there are several modules on CPAN which can clone data, this module
has a different cloning policy from almost all of them.
