NAME ^

deprecate - Perl pragma for deprecating the core version of a module

SYNOPSIS ^

    use deprecate;      # always deprecate the module in which this occurs

    use if $] > 5.010, 'deprecate';     # conditionally deprecate the module

DESCRIPTION ^

This module is used using use deprecate; (or something that calls deprecate->import(), for example use if COND, deprecate;).

If the module that includes use deprecate is located in a core library directory, a deprecation warning is issued, encouraging the user to use the version on CPAN. If that module is located in a site library, it is the CPAN version, and no warning is issued.

EXPORT

None by default. The only method is import, called by use deprecate;.
