+ Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies
+ of this license document, but changing it is not allowed.
+
+ Preamble
+
+ The license agreements of most software companies try to keep users
+at the mercy of those companies. By contrast, our General Public
+License is intended to guarantee your freedom to share and change free
+software--to make sure the software is free for all its users. The
+General Public License applies to the Free Software Foundation's
+software and to any other program whose authors commit to using it.
+You can use it for your programs, too.
+
+ When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not
+price. Specifically, the General Public License is designed to make
+sure that you have the freedom to give away or sell copies of free
+software, that you receive source code or can get it if you want it,
+that you can change the software or use pieces of it in new free
+programs; and that you know you can do these things.
+
+ To protect your rights, we need to make restrictions that forbid
+anyone to deny you these rights or to ask you to surrender the rights.
+These restrictions translate to certain responsibilities for you if you
+distribute copies of the software, or if you modify it.
+
+ For example, if you distribute copies of a such a program, whether
+gratis or for a fee, you must give the recipients all the rights that
+you have. You must make sure that they, too, receive or can get the
+source code. And you must tell them their rights.
+
+ We protect your rights with two steps: (1) copyright the software, and
+(2) offer you this license which gives you legal permission to copy,
+distribute and/or modify the software.
+
+ Also, for each author's protection and ours, we want to make certain
+that everyone understands that there is no warranty for this free
+software. If the software is modified by someone else and passed on, we
+want its recipients to know that what they have is not the original, so
+that any problems introduced by others will not reflect on the original
+authors' reputations.
+
+ The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and
+modification follow.
+
+ GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE
+ TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR COPYING, DISTRIBUTION AND MODIFICATION
+
+ 0. This License Agreement applies to any program or other work which
+contains a notice placed by the copyright holder saying it may be
+distributed under the terms of this General Public License. The
+"Program", below, refers to any such program or work, and a "work based
+on the Program" means either the Program or any work containing the
+Program or a portion of it, either verbatim or with modifications. Each
+licensee is addressed as "you".
+
+ 1. You may copy and distribute verbatim copies of the Program's source
+code as you receive it, in any medium, provided that you conspicuously and
+appropriately publish on each copy an appropriate copyright notice and
+disclaimer of warranty; keep intact all the notices that refer to this
+General Public License and to the absence of any warranty; and give any
+other recipients of the Program a copy of this General Public License
+along with the Program. You may charge a fee for the physical act of
+transferring a copy.
+
+ 2. You may modify your copy or copies of the Program or any portion of
+it, and copy and distribute such modifications under the terms of Paragraph
+1 above, provided that you also do the following:
+
+ a) cause the modified files to carry prominent notices stating that
+ you changed the files and the date of any change; and
+
+ b) cause the whole of any work that you distribute or publish, that
+ in whole or in part contains the Program or any part thereof, either
+ with or without modifications, to be licensed at no charge to all
+ third parties under the terms of this General Public License (except
+ that you may choose to grant warranty protection to some or all
+ third parties, at your option).
+
+ c) If the modified program normally reads commands interactively when
+ run, you must cause it, when started running for such interactive use
+ in the simplest and most usual way, to print or display an
+ announcement including an appropriate copyright notice and a notice
+ that there is no warranty (or else, saying that you provide a
+ warranty) and that users may redistribute the program under these
+ conditions, and telling the user how to view a copy of this General
+ Public License.
+
+ d) You may charge a fee for the physical act of transferring a
+ copy, and you may at your option offer warranty protection in
+ exchange for a fee.
+
+Mere aggregation of another independent work with the Program (or its
+derivative) on a volume of a storage or distribution medium does not bring
+the other work under the scope of these terms.
+
+ 3. You may copy and distribute the Program (or a portion or derivative of
+it, under Paragraph 2) in object code or executable form under the terms of
+Paragraphs 1 and 2 above provided that you also do one of the following:
+
+ a) accompany it with the complete corresponding machine-readable
+ source code, which must be distributed under the terms of
+ Paragraphs 1 and 2 above; or,
+
+ b) accompany it with a written offer, valid for at least three
+ years, to give any third party free (except for a nominal charge
+ for the cost of distribution) a complete machine-readable copy of the
+ corresponding source code, to be distributed under the terms of
+ Paragraphs 1 and 2 above; or,
+
+ c) accompany it with the information you received as to where the
+ corresponding source code may be obtained. (This alternative is
+ allowed only for noncommercial distribution and only if you
+ received the program in object code or executable form alone.)
+
+Source code for a work means the preferred form of the work for making
+modifications to it. For an executable file, complete source code means
+all the source code for all modules it contains; but, as a special
+exception, it need not include source code for modules which are standard
+libraries that accompany the operating system on which the executable
+file runs, or for standard header files or definitions files that
+accompany that operating system.
+
+ 4. You may not copy, modify, sublicense, distribute or transfer the
+Program except as expressly provided under this General Public License.
+Any attempt otherwise to copy, modify, sublicense, distribute or transfer
+the Program is void, and will automatically terminate your rights to use
+the Program under this License. However, parties who have received
+copies, or rights to use copies, from you under this General Public
+License will not have their licenses terminated so long as such parties
+remain in full compliance.
+
+ 5. By copying, distributing or modifying the Program (or any work based
+on the Program) you indicate your acceptance of this license to do so,
+and all its terms and conditions.
+
+ 6. Each time you redistribute the Program (or any work based on the
+Program), the recipient automatically receives a license from the original
+licensor to copy, distribute or modify the Program subject to these
+terms and conditions. You may not impose any further restrictions on the
+recipients' exercise of the rights granted herein.
+
+ 7. The Free Software Foundation may publish revised and/or new versions
+of the General Public License from time to time. Such new versions will
+be similar in spirit to the present version, but may differ in detail to
+address new problems or concerns.
+
+Each version is given a distinguishing version number. If the Program
+specifies a version number of the license which applies to it and "any
+later version", you have the option of following the terms and conditions
+either of that version or of any later version published by the Free
+Software Foundation. If the Program does not specify a version number of
+the license, you may choose any version ever published by the Free Software
+Foundation.
+
+ 8. If you wish to incorporate parts of the Program into other free
+programs whose distribution conditions are different, write to the author
+to ask for permission. For software which is copyrighted by the Free
+Software Foundation, write to the Free Software Foundation; we sometimes
+make exceptions for this. Our decision will be guided by the two goals
+of preserving the free status of all derivatives of our free software and
+of promoting the sharing and reuse of software generally.
+
+ NO WARRANTY
+
+ 9. BECAUSE THE PROGRAM IS LICENSED FREE OF CHARGE, THERE IS NO WARRANTY
+FOR THE PROGRAM, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW. EXCEPT WHEN
+OTHERWISE STATED IN WRITING THE COPYRIGHT HOLDERS AND/OR OTHER PARTIES
+PROVIDE THE PROGRAM "AS IS" WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED
+OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF
+MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. THE ENTIRE RISK AS
+TO THE QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE OF THE PROGRAM IS WITH YOU. SHOULD THE
+PROGRAM PROVE DEFECTIVE, YOU ASSUME THE COST OF ALL NECESSARY SERVICING,
+REPAIR OR CORRECTION.
+
+ 10. IN NO EVENT UNLESS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW OR AGREED TO IN WRITING
+WILL ANY COPYRIGHT HOLDER, OR ANY OTHER PARTY WHO MAY MODIFY AND/OR
+REDISTRIBUTE THE PROGRAM AS PERMITTED ABOVE, BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR DAMAGES,
+INCLUDING ANY GENERAL, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING
+OUT OF THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE PROGRAM (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED
+TO LOSS OF DATA OR DATA BEING RENDERED INACCURATE OR LOSSES SUSTAINED BY
+YOU OR THIRD PARTIES OR A FAILURE OF THE PROGRAM TO OPERATE WITH ANY OTHER
+PROGRAMS), EVEN IF SUCH HOLDER OR OTHER PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE
+POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
+
+ END OF TERMS AND CONDITIONS
+
+ Appendix: How to Apply These Terms to Your New Programs
+
+ If you develop a new program, and you want it to be of the greatest
+possible use to humanity, the best way to achieve this is to make it
+free software which everyone can redistribute and change under these
+terms.
+
+ To do so, attach the following notices to the program. It is safest to
+attach them to the start of each source file to most effectively convey
+the exclusion of warranty; and each file should have at least the
+"copyright" line and a pointer to where the full notice is found.
+
+ <one line to give the program's name and a brief idea of what it does.>
+ Copyright (C) 19yy <name of author>
+
+ This program is free software; you can redistribute it and/or modify
+ it under the terms of the GNU General Public License as published by
+ the Free Software Foundation; either version 1, or (at your option)
+ any later version.
+
+ This program is distributed in the hope that it will be useful,
+ but WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY; without even the implied warranty of
+ MERCHANTABILITY or FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. See the
+ GNU General Public License for more details.
+
+ You should have received a copy of the GNU General Public License
+ along with this program; if not, write to the Free Software Foundation,
+ Inc., 59 Temple Place, Suite 330, Boston, MA 02111-1307, USA.
+
+Also add information on how to contact you by electronic and paper mail.
+
+If the program is interactive, make it output a short notice like this
+when it starts in an interactive mode:
+
+ Gnomovision version 69, Copyright (C) 19xx name of author
+ Gnomovision comes with ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTY; for details type `show w'.
+ This is free software, and you are welcome to redistribute it
+ under certain conditions; type `show c' for details.
+
+The hypothetical commands `show w' and `show c' should show the
+appropriate parts of the General Public License. Of course, the
+commands you use may be called something other than `show w' and `show
+c'; they could even be mouse-clicks or menu items--whatever suits your
+program.
+
+You should also get your employer (if you work as a programmer) or your
+school, if any, to sign a "copyright disclaimer" for the program, if
+necessary. Here a sample; alter the names:
+
+ Yoyodyne, Inc., hereby disclaims all copyright interest in the
+ program `Gnomovision' (a program to direct compilers to make passes
+ at assemblers) written by James Hacker.

+
+The Artistic License
+
+Preamble
+
+The intent of this document is to state the conditions under which a Package
+may be copied, such that the Copyright Holder maintains some semblance of
+artistic control over the development of the package, while giving the users of
+the package the right to use and distribute the Package in a more-or-less
+customary fashion, plus the right to make reasonable modifications.
+
+Definitions:
+
+ - "Package" refers to the collection of files distributed by the Copyright
+ Holder, and derivatives of that collection of files created through
+ textual modification.
+ - "Standard Version" refers to such a Package if it has not been modified,
+ or has been modified in accordance with the wishes of the Copyright
+ Holder.
+ - "Copyright Holder" is whoever is named in the copyright or copyrights for
+ the package.
+ - "You" is you, if you're thinking about copying or distributing this Package.
+ - "Reasonable copying fee" is whatever you can justify on the basis of media
+ cost, duplication charges, time of people involved, and so on. (You will
+ not be required to justify it to the Copyright Holder, but only to the
+ computing community at large as a market that must bear the fee.)
+ - "Freely Available" means that no fee is charged for the item itself, though
+ there may be fees involved in handling the item. It also means that
+ recipients of the item may redistribute it under the same conditions they
+ received it.
+
+1. You may make and give away verbatim copies of the source form of the
+Standard Version of this Package without restriction, provided that you
+duplicate all of the original copyright notices and associated disclaimers.
+
+2. You may apply bug fixes, portability fixes and other modifications derived
+from the Public Domain or from the Copyright Holder. A Package modified in such
+a way shall still be considered the Standard Version.
+
+3. You may otherwise modify your copy of this Package in any way, provided that
+you insert a prominent notice in each changed file stating how and when you
+changed that file, and provided that you do at least ONE of the following:
+
+ a) place your modifications in the Public Domain or otherwise make them
+ Freely Available, such as by posting said modifications to Usenet or an
+ equivalent medium, or placing the modifications on a major archive site
+ such as ftp.uu.net, or by allowing the Copyright Holder to include your
+ modifications in the Standard Version of the Package.
+
+ b) use the modified Package only within your corporation or organization.
+
+ c) rename any non-standard executables so the names do not conflict with
+ standard executables, which must also be provided, and provide a separate
+ manual page for each non-standard executable that clearly documents how it
+ differs from the Standard Version.
+
+ d) make other distribution arrangements with the Copyright Holder.
+
+4. You may distribute the programs of this Package in object code or executable
+form, provided that you do at least ONE of the following:
+
+ a) distribute a Standard Version of the executables and library files,
+ together with instructions (in the manual page or equivalent) on where to
+ get the Standard Version.
+
+ b) accompany the distribution with the machine-readable source of the Package
+ with your modifications.
+
+ c) accompany any non-standard executables with their corresponding Standard
+ Version executables, giving the non-standard executables non-standard
+ names, and clearly documenting the differences in manual pages (or
+ equivalent), together with instructions on where to get the Standard
+ Version.
+
+ d) make other distribution arrangements with the Copyright Holder.
+
+5. You may charge a reasonable copying fee for any distribution of this
+Package. You may charge any fee you choose for support of this Package. You
+may not charge a fee for this Package itself. However, you may distribute this
+Package in aggregate with other (possibly commercial) programs as part of a
+larger (possibly commercial) software distribution provided that you do not
+advertise this Package as a product of your own.
+
+6. The scripts and library files supplied as input to or produced as output
+from the programs of this Package do not automatically fall under the copyright
+of this Package, but belong to whomever generated them, and may be sold
+commercially, and may be aggregated with this Package.
+
+7. C or perl subroutines supplied by you and linked into this Package shall not
+be considered part of this Package.
+
+8. The name of the Copyright Holder may not be used to endorse or promote
+products derived from this software without specific prior written permission.
+
+9. THIS PACKAGE IS PROVIDED "AS IS" AND WITHOUT ANY EXPRESS OR IMPLIED
+WARRANTIES, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF
+MERCHANTIBILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.

-Perl5i is our imaginary version of Perl 5.
+NAME
+ perl5i - Bend Perl 5 so it fits how it works in our imaginations
-The goal will be to load just one module and fix as much of Perl 5 as
-possible. It will not cause excessive load time. It will be
-reasonably backwards compatible. It will be stable and usable in
-production (right now it isn't).
+SYNOPSIS
+ use perl5i;
-Since a lot of fixing Perl 5 is "go use this module from CPAN... and this
-one... and this other one... and these two... and this and this..."
-this mostly involves loading a bunch of modules.
+ or
-What's Perl 5 look like in your imagination?
-http://github.com/schwern/perl5i/issues
+ $ perl5i your_script.pl
-The current goal of perl5i is to collect your pain. What is painful
-for you about Perl? What takes two lines when it should take one?
-What subroutines do you find yourself using over and over again?
-Please, share your pain. Put it into the issue tracker.
+DESCRIPTION
+ THIS MODULE'S INTERFACE IS UNSTABLE! It's still a playground. Features
+ may be added, changed and removed without notice. `use perl5i' may not
+ even work in the future. See
+ http://github.com/schwern/perl5i/issues/issue/69 and
+ http://github.com/schwern/perl5i/issues/issue/60 for details. You have
+ been warned.
-Currently we hang out on irc.perl.org #perl5i. Please join us.
+ Perl 5 has a lot of warts. There's a lot of individual modules and
+ techniques out there to fix those warts. perl5i aims to pull the best of
+ them together into one module so you can turn them on all at once.
+
+ This includes adding features, changing existing core functions and
+ changing defaults. It will likely not be 100% backwards compatible with
+ Perl 5, so perl5i will try to have a lexical effect.
+
+ Please add to this imaginary world and help make it real, either by
+ telling me what Perl looks like in your imagination
+ (http://github.com/schwern/perl5i/issues or make a fork (forking on
+ github is like a branch you control) and implement it yourself.
+
+What it does
+ perl5i enables each of these modules and adds/changes these functions.
+ We'll provide a brief description here, but you should look at each of
+ their documentation for full details.
+
+ alias()
+ alias( $name => $reference );
+ alias( $package, $name => $reference );
+ alias( @identifiers => $reference );
+
+ Assigns a $refrence a $name. For example...
+
+ alias foo => sub { 42 };
+ print foo(); # prints 42
+
+ It will also work on hash, array and scalar refs.
+
+ our %stuff;
+ alias stuff => \%some_other_hash;
+
+ Multiple @identifiers will be joined with '::' and used as the fully
+ qualified name for the alias.
+
+ my $class = "Some::Class";
+ my $name = "foo";
+ alias $class, $name => sub { 99 };
+ print Some::Class->foo; # prints 99
+
+ If the $name has no "::" in it, the current caller will be prepended.
+
+ This is basically a nicer way to say:
+
+ no strict 'refs';
+ *{$package . '::'. $name} = $reference;
+
+ center()
+ my $centered_string = $string->center($length);
+ my $centered_string = $string->center($length, $character);
+
+ Centers $string between $character. $centered_string will be of length
+ $length.
+
+ `<$character'> defaults to " ".
+
+ say "Hello"->center(10); # " Hello ";
+ say "Hello"->center(10, '-'); # "---Hello--";
+
+ `<center()'> will never truncate `<$string'>. If $length is less than
+ `<$string-'length>> it will just return `<$string'>.
+
+ say "Hello"->center(4); # "Hello";
+
+ wrap()
+ my $wrapped = $string->wrap( width => $cols, separator => $sep );
+
+ Wraps $string to width $cols, breaking lines at word boundries using
+ separator $sep.
+
+ If no width is given, $cols defaults to 76. Default line separator is
+ the newline character "\n".
+
+ See Text::Wrap for details.
+
+ ltrim()
+ my $string = ' testme'->ltrim; # 'testme'
+
+ Trim leading whitespace (left).
+
+ rtrim()
+ my $string = 'testme '->rtrim; #'testme'
+
+ Trim trailing whitespace (right).
+
+ trim()
+ my $string = ' testme '->trim; #'testme'
+
+ Trim both leading and trailing whitespace.
+
+ title_case()
+ my $name = 'joe smith'->title_case; #Joe Smith
+
+ Will uppercase every word character that follows a wordbreak character.
+
+ die()
+ `die' now always returns an exit code of 255 instead of trying to use
+ `$!' or `$?' which makes the exit code unpredictable. If you want to
+ exit with a message and a special exit code, use `warn' then `exit'.
+
+ English
+ English gives English names to the punctuation variables like `<$@'> is
+ also `<$EVAL_ERROR'>. See perlvar for details.
+
+ It does not load the regex variables which effect performance.
+ `<$PREMATCH'>, `<$MATCH'>, and `<POSTMATCH'> will not exist. See `</p'>
+ in perlre for a better alternative.
+
+ Modern::Perl
+ Turns on strict and warnings, enables all the 5.10 features like
+ `given/when', `say' and `state', and enables C3 method resolution order.
+
+ CLASS
+ Provides `CLASS' and `$CLASS' alternatives to `__PACKAGE__'.
+
+ File::chdir
+ File::chdir gives you `$CWD' representing the current working directory
+ and its assignable to `<chdir'>. You can also localize it to safely
+ chdir inside a scope.
+
+ File::stat
+ File::stat causes `stat' to return objects rather than long arrays which
+ you never remember which bit is which.
+
+ DateTime
+ `time', `localtime' and `gmtime' are replaced with DateTime objects.
+ They will all act like the core functions.
+
+ # Sat Jan 10 13:37:04 2004
+ say scalar gmtime(2**30);
+
+ # 2004
+ say gmtime(2**30)->year;
+
+ # 2009 (when this was written)
+ say time->year;
+
+ Time::y2038
+ gmtime() and localtime() will now safely work with dates beyond the year
+ 2038 and before 1901 (the exact range is not defined, but its well into
+ a couple million years in either direction).
+
+ Module::Load
+ Module::Load adds `load' which will load a module from a scalar without
+ requiring you to do funny things like `eval require $module'.
+
+ IO::Handle
+ Turns filehandles into objects so you can call methods on them. The
+ biggest one is `autoflush' rather than mucking around with `$|' and
+ `select'.
+
+ $fh->autoflush(1);
+
+ autodie
+ autodie causes system and file calls which can fail (`open', `system'
+ and `chdir', for example) to die when they fail. This means you don't
+ have to put `or die' at the end of every system call, but you do have to
+ wrap it in an `eval' block if you want to trap the failure.
+
+ autodie's default error messages are pretty smart.
+
+ All of autodie will be turned on.
+
+ autobox
+ autobox allows methods to be defined for and called on most unblessed
+ variables.
+
+ autobox::Core
+ autobox::Core wraps a lot of Perl's built in functions so they can be
+ called as methods on unblessed variables. `@a->pop' for example.
+
+ autobox::List::Util
+ autobox::List::Util wraps the functions from List::Util (first, max,
+ maxstr, min, minstr, shuffle, reduce, and sum) so they can be called on
+ arrays and arrayrefs.
+
+ autobox::dump
+ autobox::dump defines a `perl' method that returns Data::Dumper style
+ serialization of the results of the expression.
+
+ autovivification
+ autovivification fixes the bug/feature where this:
+
+ $hash = {};
+ $hash->{key1}{key2};
+
+ Results in `<$hash-'{key1}>> coming into existance. That will no longer
+ happen.
+
+ Want
+ Want generalizes the mechanism of the wantarray function, allowing a
+ function to determine the context it's being called in. Want
+ distinguishes not just scalar v. array context, but void, lvalue,
+ rvalue, boolean, reference context and more. See perldoc Want.
+
+BUGS
+ Some parts are not lexical.
+
+ See http://github.com/schwern/perl5i/issues/labels/bug for a complete
+ list.

+ rtance-of-language-design.html.
+
+ I totally didn't come up with the "Perl 5 + i" joke. I think it was
+ Damian Conway.
