       Padre::Constant - constants used by configuration subsystems


           use Padre::Constant ();
           # do stuff with exported constants


       Padre uses various configuration subsystems (see "Padre::Config" for more information).
       Those systems needs to somehow agree on some basic stuff, which is defined in this module.


   "WIN32", "MAC", "UNIX"
       Operating Systems.

   "WXWIN32", "WXMAC", "WXGTK"
       Padre targets the three largest Wx back-ends and maps to the OS constants.

       These are superficially identical to the current operation system constants, but are
       reserved to specifically differentiate between the operating system in general and the Wx
       backend implementation, in case the distinction becomes important at some point in the

           WXWIN32 => WIN32,
           WXMAC   => MAC,
           WXGTK   => UNIX,

       Settings data types (based on Firefox types).

       Settings storage back-ends.

       The SVN Revision (when running a development build).

       Core supported colours.

       DB configuration file storing host settings.

       YAML configuration file storing user settings.

       Private Padre configuration directory Padre, used to store stuff.

       Private directory where Padre can look for plug-ins.

       Subdirectory of "PLUGIN_DIR" with the path "Padre/Plugin" added (or whatever depending on
       your platform) so that Perl can load a "Padre::Plugin::" plug-in.

       Path and name of Padre's log file.

       Newline style (UNIX, WIN or MAC) on the currently used operating system.
