Subject: Does not work under 5.20
Download (untitled) / with headers

The documentation states that it uses Data::Alias up to 5.18, and uses perl’s built-in refaliasing feature in 5.20 and up. But refaliasing was not introduced till 5.22. This point is moot, though, since Keyword::Declare depends on PPR, which consumes too much memory under 5.20 (due to <>), so it would only work if someone happened to have an old version of Keyword::Declare installed. This is a case where caveats in the documentation would probably be called for. I am not actually using 5.20. I just happened to notice that the versions seemed off in the documentation. (After all, I wrote the refaliasing feature. I didn’t remember it being that old!)

Thanks for the history lesson. :-) And, more importantly, for the refaliasing mechanism, which I am particularly grateful to you for adding. I've adjusted the module's code and documentation accordingly. Though, of course, as you pointed out: the difference is moot given that the module is unlikely ever to run under Perl 5.20. :-( Damian
