Chapter 8. Standard Modules > Filter::Simple

8.113. Filter::Simple

Source filtering is a nice feature of newer versions of Perl (5.6 and later) because it allows the programmer to write extensions to the Perl language without tampering with the Perl source code itself. That is, you can create a macro language out of Perl.

Filter::Simple is based on Filter:Util::Call, but simplifies the means by which you can begin doing your own source filtering with Perl. Filter::Simple ships with the Perl 5.8 source kit.
