My - modules with my favorite API.


    use My;
    abuse qw(My::Debug :0 varlog $debug_print);
    abuse qw(My::GetOpt :0 import_options :getopt set);
    abuse qw(My::Util::TempName tmpnam);


My modules provide various utility functions with my favorite programming interfaces.

Gzipped tar ball of very alpha version is available.


You first (or after package name declaration) have to declare to use ``''. Then you may call following subroutins to use package-name and to import some names in the package. In most cases, you should put the subroutine calls into a BEGIN block.

abuse package-name, name|options, ...
options are one of the following form:
This option specifies that the succeeding names are imported from the package of the name package-name with trailing digits components removed. The option :1 is supplied by default.

For example, the subroutine call

  abuse qw(My::Util::Packs packs);

loads the module My/Util/, and then makes the name packs an alias of My::Util::packs.

(undocumented yet.)

(undocumented yet.)

format-string is used to generate the names which are aliases of imported names, with the builtin sprintf.

abuse_ph path, name|options, ...
The contents of the file of the name are evaluated in the package My::Sys, and then importation is done in the same manner as abuse.

Object oriented programming support also provides some OO progrmmaing support.

The value of this subroutine is the package name of caller followed by the string ``::internal''. This is mainly intended to be used as the name of place where private data of each class reside.
