  Description     : Perl module to change Perl's destruction level

Perl::Destruct::Level is an interface allowing one to change Perl's internal
destruction level. While this functionality is available through the
PERL_DESTRUCT_LEVEL environment variable when perl is compiled with debug
support, this module provides it for perls without -DDEBUGGING.

The default value of the destruct level is 0; it means that perl won't bother
destroying all its internal data structures, but let the OS do the cleanup
for it at exit.

Relevant values recognized by perl are 1 and 2. Consult your source code to
know exactly what they mean. Note that some embedded environments might
extend the meaning of the destruction level for their own purposes: mod_perl
does that, for example.
