Package::Stash::PP(3) pure perl implementation of the Package::Stash API


version 0.37


use Package::Stash;


This is a backend for Package::Stash implemented in pure perl, for those without a compiler or who would like to use this inline in scripts.


  • remove_symbol also replaces the associated typeglob

    This can cause unexpected behavior when doing manipulation at compile time - removing subroutines will still allow them to be called from within the package as subroutines (although they will not be available as methods). This can be considered a feature in some cases (this is how namespace::clean works, for instance), but should not be relied upon - use "remove_glob" directly if you want this behavior.

  • Some minor memory leaks

    The pure perl implementation has a couple minor memory leaks (see the TODO tests in t/20-leaks.t) that I'm having a hard time tracking down - these may be core perl bugs, it's hard to tell.

Please report any bugs through RT: email "bug-package-stash at", or browse to <>.
