PerlTop literals dump output to multiple files.
used for mod_perl deployment,
its output goes at the top of the Perl block -- before any other statements,
except the shebang.
For CGI scripts and stand alone servers, the output goes directly after the use strict at the top of the scripts.
This literal is particularly useful for specifying alternate lib paths as shown in the example.
To see an example, build:
bigtop -c example.bigtop all
app.cgi app.server docs/httpd.conf
Notice that clever indentation is more useful for httpd.conf than for scripts.
