  • And....

    use any::feature 'say';

    looks a bit nicer than something like....

    from __future__ import with_statement

    IMHO of course ;-)

  • If you want to use this both on perl 5.8.x and on perl 5.10, then you have to install any::feature [cpan.org] on 5.10.

    Wouldn't it be nicer to backport feature [cpan.org] to 5.8, thus: rename any::feature [cpan.org] to feature [cpan.org], and make it only installable on 5.8? (Not sure how the latter would work)

    I'm not saying this is the best solution, but it's the solution I like better, among the options that I see.

    • I thought about that, but somehow it feels wrong to stomp on someone else's namespace; especially it's not clear what would happen if someone on 5.10 (or later) would use "install feature" in the CPAN shell...
