Description Chris Weyl 2006-09-05 18:19:19 EDT

SPEC URL: http://home.comcast.net/~ckweyl/perl-SUPER.spec

* source match upstream

I'm not explicitly requiring perl(DB) perl(UNIVERSAL) right now as a) they don't
look to be required, and b) in any case they're in core, so I can quash this
question on the ground it's moot anyways ;)

The provides are right now, but the description is still
Comment 4 Chris Weyl 2006-09-07 16:54:44 EDT
That's what I get for being too literal and not reading the text I'm fixing. 
I'll update to:

"When subclassing a class, you occasionally want to dispatch control to the
superclass -- at least conditionally and temporarily.   This module provides
an easier, cleaner way for class methods to access their ancestor's
