Name        : perl-Class-C3-Adopt-NEXT
Product     : Fedora 9
Version     : 0.06
Release     : 1.fc9
URL         : http://search.cpan.org/dist/Class-C3-Adopt-NEXT
Summary     : Reduce one's dependency on NEXT
Description :
NEXT was a good solution a few years ago, but isn't any more. It's
slow, and the order in which it re-dispatches methods appears random
at times. It also encourages bad programming practices, as you end up
with code to redispatch methods when all you really wanted to do was
run some code before or after a method fired.  However, if you have a large
application, then weaning yourself off 'NEXT' isn't easy.This module is
intended as a drop-in replacement for NEXT, supporting the same interface,
but using Class::C3 to do the hard work. You can then write new code
without 'NEXT', and migrate individual source files to use 'Class::C3'
or method modifiers as appropriate, at whatever pace you're comfortable with.


This update can be installed with the "yum" update program.  Use 
su -c 'yum update perl-Class-C3-Adopt-NEXT' at the command line.
