[Israel.pm] package aliasing?

Hello There.

A quick look inside Package::Alias, reveal the trick:
BEGIN { *A:: = \*B::; }

It have to be inside a begin block. (make sense - all the binding
happens  in compile time)

Thanks to all.

It is more like this:

*A:: = \*B::

or you can use CPAN modules like Package::Alias:

use Package::Alias A => 'B';

There are others, but I cannot find them right now.
