NAME

Alt::Base - Base class for alternate module

VERSION

version 0.02

SYNOPSIS

 # in your Alt/Foo/Bar/phrase.pm:
 package Alt::Foo::Bar::phrase;
 use base qw(Alt::Base);
 1;
 # customize options:
 package Alt::Foo::Bar::phrase;
 use base qw(Alt::Base);
 our %ALT = (check => 0, ...);
 1;

DESCRIPTION

The Alt::Base class provides common functionalities for an alternate module. For more information about the Alt concept, please refer to Alt.
Alt::Base defines an "import()" routine which checks for options in %ALT. These options are:
check => BOOL (default: 1)
 
If set to true (the default), will perform several things. First, check that the alternate module is indeed named "Alt::<<Original::Module>::<phrase>". Then, load "Alternate::Module" and check that the package variable $ALT is defined with the value of "phrase". This is to ensure that we are loading the correct module, and sometimes we do want to make sure about this. The wrong module can be loaded, for example if user reinstalls the original distribution or another alternate distribution.
 
Will die upon failure.
