Name        : perl-Devel-GlobalDestruction
Product     : Fedora 18
Version     : 0.09
Release     : 1.fc18
URL         : http://search.cpan.org/dist/Devel-GlobalDestruction
Summary     : Expose PL_dirty, the flag that marks global destruction
Description :
Perl's global destruction is a little tricky to deal with with respect to
finalizers because it's not ordered and objects can sometimes disappear.

Writing defensive destructors is hard and annoying, and usually if global
destruction is happening you only need the destructors that free up non
process local resources to actually execute.

For these constructors you can avoid the mess by simply bailing out if
global destruction is in effect.

Update Information:

This update fixes global destruction detection when used with threads, and uses Sub::Exporter::Progressive to improve performance for cases in which Exporter can be used instead of Sub::Exporter.
