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.
