Acme::MetaSyntactic - Themed metasyntactic variables DESCRIPTION When writing code examples, it's always easy at the beginning: my $foo = "bar"; $foo .= "baz"; # barbaz But one gets quickly stuck with the same old boring examples. Does it have to be this way? I say "No". Here is Acme::MetaSyntactic, designed to fulfill your metasyntactic needs. No more will you scratch your head in search of a good variable name! UPDATES From January 2005 to November 2006, I have published a CPAN distribution a week, including new themes for Acme::MetaSyntactic (almost) every week. With the version 1.000 of Acme::MetaSyntactic (published on May 7, 2012), I have split the core modules (the ones that provide the list behaviour) from the actual themes, making the distribution containing the very stable Acme::MetaSyntactic modules driving its behaviour a lot thinner. If you think a important list is missing from the module, you should be able to make a distribution for it yourself. To ensure correctness, include the following test script in your t/ directory: use Test::MetaSyntactic; all_themes_ok(); If you think something's missing from a list distributed with Acme-MetaSyntatic-Themes, please send me a patch against that distribution. INSTALL To install this module, run the following commands: perl Build.PL ./Build ./Build test ./Build install Alternatively, to install with ExtUtils::MakeMaker, you can use the following commands: perl Makefile.PL make make test make install SUCCESS STORIES See the documentation for meta(1).
