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;".


SEE ALSO

       First example to "use deprecate;" was Switch(3).
