Default Bug#601899: ITP: liblist-maker-perl -- Perl module to generate more sophisticated lists than just $a..$b

Package: wnpp
Owner: Salvatore Bonaccorso <carnil@debian.org>
Severity: wishlist
X-Debbugs-CC: debian-devel@lists.debian.org,debian-perl@lists.debian.org

* Package name : liblist-maker-perl
Version : 0.0.5
Upstream Author : Damian Conway <DCONWAY@CPAN.org>
* URL : http://search.cpan.org/dist/List-Maker/
* License : Artistic or GPL-1+
Programming Lang: Perl
Description : Perl module to generate more sophisticated lists than just $a..$b

The List::Maker module hijacks Perl's built-in file globbing syntax (< *.pl >
and glob '*.pl') and retargets it at list creation.

The rationale is simple: most people rarely if ever glob a set of files, but
they have to create lists in almost every program they write. So the list
construction syntax should be easier than the filename expansion syntax.

Alternatively, you can load the module with an explicit name, and it creates
a subroutine of that name that builds the same kinds of lists for you
(leaving the globbing mechanism unaltered).
