Name        : perl-Scalar-List-Utils
Product     : Fedora 17
Version     : 1.25
Release     : 1.fc17
URL         : http://search.cpan.org/dist/Scalar-List-Utils/
Summary     : A selection of general-utility scalar and list subroutines
Description :
This package contains a selection of subroutines that people have expressed
would be nice to have in the perl core, but the usage would not really be
high enough to warrant the use of a keyword, and the size so small such
that being individual extensions would be wasteful.
