in reply to The Very::Long::Class::Name problem

For something a little closer to python's import Class as Alias set up the import() routine to create an alias e.g

sub import { my($pkg, %args) = @_; return unless exists $args{as} and length $args{as}; croak "Glob '$args{as}' already exists" if defined *{$args{as}}; *{"$args{as}\::"} = *{"$pkg\::"}; } ## usage use Very::Long::Class::Name ( as => 'Name' ); my $obj = Name->new;
Or, you could take the modular approach and use Package::Alias e.g
use Very::Long::Class::Name; use Package::Alias ( Name => 'Very::Long::Class::Name' );
