|Summary : Automatic function loader (using __DATA__)
|Description : |
This module tells its users that functions in the FOOBAR package are to be
autoloaded from after the \'__DATA__\' token. See also the
The __DATA__ token
The \'__DATA__\' token tells the perl compiler that the perl code for
compilation is finished. Everything after the \'__DATA__\' token is
available for reading via the filehandle FOOBAR::DATA, where FOOBAR is
the name of the current package when the \'__DATA__\' token is reached.
This works just the same as \'__END__\' does in package \'main\', but for
other modules data after \'__END__\' is not automatically retrievable,
whereas data after \'__DATA__\' is. The \'__DATA__\' token is not
recognized in versions of perl prior to 5.001m.
Note that it is possible to have \'__DATA__\' tokens in the same package
in multiple files, and that the last \'__DATA__\' token in a given
package that is encountered by the compiler is the one accessible by
the filehandle. This also applies to \'__END__\' and main, i.e. if the
\'main\' program has an \'__END__\', but a module \'require\'d (_not_ \'use\'d)
by that program has a \'package main;\' declaration followed by an
\'\'__DATA__\'\', then the \'DATA\' filehandle is set to access the data
after the \'__DATA__\' in the module, _not_ the data after the \'__END__\'
token in the \'main\' program, since the compiler encounters the
\'require\'d file later.
